Defending a total of 179, Team India came up with some ordinary fielding during the third T20I at Hamilton on Wednesday. Apart from conceding extra runs due to some poor fielding at the fence, even dependable players like Ravinder Jadeja dropped a catch in the 10th over.

Some even came to Jadeja’s defence, while others questioned when it happened last. Here are some reactions to the dropped catch on social media:
