All hell broke loose when former Indian cricketer Ravi Shastri forgot to announce the Man of the Match award in the presentation ceremony of the Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad match.
In the post-match presentation, Shastri called it a day after speaking to the winning captain Rohit Sharma. Soon after, he realized his blunder and called Man of the Match Jasprit Bumrah on to the stage.
Shastri’s comedy of errors left his fellow commentators Kevin Pietersen and Murali Kartik in splits back at the studio.
KP was quick to pounce on to Shastri and tweeted:
Wahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha – @RaviShastriOfc! Tough gig with that mic and all those notes? 1st bus?

Shastri too had a good laugh at his own expense.
@KP24 hahahaha Works well sometimes. You have plenty to laugh about at the end of a long day

Even the fans were quick to get onto Shastri’s case and trolled him.
