Rishabh Pant is known to be the jokester of the Indian cricket team and the stunts he pulls, in person or on the social media, are taken in good spirit by his teammates. Earlier this week, the wicket-keeper batsman decided to prey on the pacer, Mohammed Shami when he turned 31 on September 3. However, the response Pant got left the cricketer as stunned as his fans.
"@MdShami11 bhai, ball aur umar dono tezi se nikli jaa rahi hai. Happy birthday! (@MdShami11 bro, ball and your age, both are rushing by quickly. Happy birthday!)" wrote the middle-order dynamic batter in his special birthday wish on the micro-blogging websiteRishabh Pant, in his latest twitter post
While it was typical of Pant to crack such jokes, his fans and followers were taken by surprise when Mohammed Shami decided to pull the 23-year-old's leg in return and responded with a super cheeky message of his own.
"Apna time aayega beta ball or Umar ko koi nahi rook saka but motape ka treatment aaj bhi hota hai @RishabhPant17 (Our time will come and nobody could stop age but there's still treatment available for being fat even today @RishabhPant17)."Mohammad Shami, in his latest twitter post
Fans of both the cricketers were amazes to see such a banter take place online. However, here's how some of them reacted.
If it would have been anyone else in place of Rishabh Pant on the receiving end of such a comment. Although, they would have definitely gotten hurt and responded to keep the banter going. However, the Indian southpaw is one of those rare people who can take a joke on themselves and genuinely laugh about it too.
