India's stand-in captain Rohit Sharma lost his cool after an error on the giant screen during the second T20I against Bangladesh in Rajkot on Thursday. Rohit was infuriated after Bangladesh batsman Soumya Sarkar was stumped by Rishabh Pant off a Yuzvendra Chahal delivery, but the giant screen had a glitch, making the third umpire give a 'not out'. The on-field umpires later were informed by the 4th official that it was an error and Soumya Sarkar was out. Rohit was not amused and cited his displeasure.

Rohit Sharma: First Indian to 100 T20Is

Earlier in the day, Rohit became the first Indian cricketer to play 100 T20Is for India. He has scored 2537 runs in the format, the most by any batsman. Rohit Sharma is the only cricketer to breach the 2500-run mark in T20Is. He will look to continue his stellar form in the 3rd T20I at Nagpur. The hosts lost the first T20I in Delhi but bounced back in Rajkot on Thursday to level the series 1-1.
