Opener Rohit Sharma, who is in an amazing form with the bat, used an expletive during his knock of 127 on Saturday that reminded us of Virat Kohli abusing and later clarifying that he did not use the expletive but instead took Ben Stokes’ name, a word which kind of rhymes with an Indian expletive commonly used.
During India’s second innings, Rohit Sharma abused Cheteshwar Pujara, who was at the non-striker’s end, and the stump mic picked it up. Rohit was looking to take a single but Pujara did not take it. India’s new-found opener used an expletive in Hindi expressing his frustration. Soon, the video went viral on social media. The incident got a reaction from the England all-rounder as well.
For those who don’t remember or don’t know, Kohli is believed to use the expletive quite often on the field. But the general consensus on social media is that Kohli keeps on saying “Ben Stokes” instead of the expletive. When Rohit used the same words, Stokes could not stop himself from tweeting, “This time it’s Rohit not Virat….if you know you know.”
Rohit hit two centuries in this Test match against South Africa and is in top form.
