India skipper Rohit Sharma could not stop himself from pulling his teammate Kuldeep Yadav's legs during a special cap presentation ceremony.

Rohit presented Kuldeep with the prestigious cap for being named in the ICC ODI Team of the Year. As many as six Indian players were named in the star-studded team announced by the ICC earlier this year. Rohit, Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Mohammed Siraj, Kuldeep Yadav, and Mohammed Shami were named in the ODI Team of the Year.

Rohit was also named as the captain of the team that featured the likes of Travis Head, Daryl Mitchell, Heinrich Klaasen, Marco Jansen, and Adam Zampa as well. Kuldeep made it to the team for finishing 2023 as the leading wicket-taker. He had picked up an impressive 49 wickets in the 50-over format last year. Kuldeep did well in the ODI World Cup as well, taking 15 wickets.

Rohit Sharma teases Kuldeep Yadav:

During the cap presentation, India head coach Rahul Dravid asked Rohit Sharma to give the cap to Kuldeep Yadav. The players received the cap during a photoshoot ahead of the T20 World Cup. While presenting the cap to Kuldeep, Rohit said:

"It's my great pleasure to present this wonderful cap to a wonderful athlete and who has been a real asset for Team India. ICC ODI Team of the Year - Kuldeep Yadav."

"Thank you Rohit bhai," said the spinner while receiving the cap.

"You want to say something?," Rohit told Kuldeep before the latter said: "No, no. All good."

However, Rohit Sharma insisted Kuldeep to say something on the special occasion and it did not take him long to be taken aback. Kuldeep stunned his captain by mentioning that he had a good season with the bat as well in ODIs last year.

"I mean nothing much to say. I had a great season last year with both bat and ball," said Kuldeep.

A stunned Rohit quickly interrupted as he asked his teammate: "Bat. When? When?"

When Kuldeep tried to justify himself, Rohit hilariously said: "I was the captain of this team. I have never seen him bat. So I don't know what is he talking about."
