Watch: Commentary box left in splits as Ravi Shastri crops Nasser Hussain out of his life

Kevin Pietersen and Ravi Shastri

Commentary is considered an integral part of the game. There are some moments in the game when the action on the field isn’t as exciting to keep the crowd engaged. Thus, that’s when the commentators take the front seat and come up with something ‘entertaining’ to keep the interest of the audience alive.

One such moment happened during Day 3 of the ongoing fifth Test between England vs India. It was during the 12th over of India’s second innings that the broadcaster showed two tweets one by Ian Ward and the other one by Ravi Shastri. The tweets had photographs from Day 2 of the Test that was dedicated to the cause of raising awareness for ‘Prostrate Cancer’ in the memory of former England cricketer Bob Willis who died due to the disease. The Sky Sports Commentary Panel also donned blue blazers in the memory of Willis and urged the crowd to donate and raise funds for research into better detection and diagnosis of prostate cancer.

The Tweets had the photographs of the commentary Panel from Day 2. In Ian Ward’s tweet, the photograph had the entire commentary panel present but in Ravi Shastri's tweet, former England Captain turned commentator Nasser Hussain was missing. The commentary team saw the funny side of it as Hussain asked Shastri what had he done wrong to be cropped out of Shastri’s photograph. A few moments later, Hussain pointed out that it was actually Kevin Pietersen who had cropped Hussain out of the photograph. Following the revelation, Shastri began to beat Pietersen in a funny manner as the commentary box burst into laughter.

India ended Day 3 in a commanding position of 125/3 leading England by 257 runs.  Cheteshwar Pujara is unbeaten on 50 with Rishabh Pant on 30. Earlier in the day, India bowled out England for 284 runs after Jonny Bairstow scored a magnificent hundred. On Day 4 India will look to post a huge fourth innings target and bat England out of the game.
