A shocking incident took the Cricket fraternity by surprise when Rishabh Pant was caught on mic saying” Yeh to
Post the Indian tour of Australia last year, Rishabh Pant’s stump-mic chatter has become famous, but he finds himself in hot water after this controversial prediction. Such injudicious incidents often mislead people into thinking that fantasy sports play its part in such unethical activities. Spot-fixing or match-fixing is a different stigma which has spoilt this beautiful game for ages. Fantasy Sports, on the contrary, has promoted the ethics and principles of sports with the help of online gaming. If this turns out to be true, then a stern action must be taken by the BCCI against the main culprit as this kind of disgraceful deed shouldn’t be tolerated in the world of sports.

Lalit Kumar Modi, the founder of the Indian Premier League, took to Twitter to show his grief and displeasure against this infamous incident. However, the BCCI has abandoned all the allegations saying Rishabh Pant’s comments were ‘misconstrued’ and requested people to keep the talented youngster away from such false accusations. A top BCCI official, “No one heard what Rishabh said before that particular sentence. He was telling [Delhi Capitals captain] Shreyas Iyer to increase fielders on off-side to stop an imminent four”. The same official said that it is unfortunate that his career is being scrutinized using such inappropriate video footage. The official added, “Maligning a young cricketer without even knowing the details is so unfortunate. A section of media allowed social media to insinuate and vilify a young talent without getting into details. This is so disgusting.”
