Australian batsman Matthew Wade has been at his vocal best off late. Picking on a verbal duel with Rishabh Pant, the cricketer has formed his own little battle with the Indian wicketkeeper. However, the dynamic left-handed batsman has not been able to translate his verbals into powerful performances with the bat as he squandered yet another start against India in the ongoing Test series. On Day 2 of the Sydney Test, Matthew Wade gifted away his wicket to Ravindra Jadeja after getting settled at 13.
Matthew Wade arrived at the crease at 206-3, i.e. immediately after Marnus Labuschagne missed his Test century by just nine runs. When the left-hander reached 13*, he stepped out and tried lofting Ravindra Jadeja towards midwicket. However, the seasoned Indian spinner got the better of Wade as he ended up getting a leading edge only to be holed out at mid-on by Jasprit Bumrah.
Later, the batsman was brutally mocked by Australian fans for throwing away his wicket. Moreover, Indian fans also trolled Wade for his dismissal since the batsman kept hitting close-in fielder Hanuma Vihari while at the crease. Here is a look at some of the fans reacting to Wade’s dismissal.

The Vihari tactic worked...Wade kept getting aggressive— Ajinkya Ashok Darshane (@ajinkyadarshane) January 8, 2021
Too busy mouthing off and carrying on rather than playing cricket. Let the team down big time with a shot he always sky’s.— HEXDATOR (@ProcessBrat) January 8, 2021
One day Matthew wade will stop giving away his wicket.— Educated Jackass (@water_king10) January 8, 2021
