Indian opener, Rohit Sharma was caught abusing, in elation, while he was celebrating India’s historic win in Brisbane on the last day of the series.
Team India has registered arguably their greatest Test series victory as they defeat Australia on Tuesday in Brisbane by 7 wickets. The Ajinkya Rahane led side staged a what could be called an inconceivable comeback triumph after getting bowled out for 36 in the first Test in Adelaide.
Under the stand-in skipper, Ajinkya Rahane the Indian contingent, which kept losing players after player to injuries, won in Melbourne, draw out at the SCG.
However, their victory at the Gabba, known as Australia’s fortress – the hosts haven’t lost a single Test at the venue since 1988 until they met a half-fit group of Indians – is the sweetest one. Team India, who couldn’t put up 11 completely fit players on the field, with just two players playing all the 4 Test matches, have breached the Gabbatoir.
Watch: Rohit Sharma abused during the celebration of India’s victory
In Brisbane, set a target of 328, India lost Rohit Sharma early. But, other batters conjured partnerships; Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara notched up their respective fifties. It was Rishabh Pant, who just like in Sydney, lit the hope of a successful chase. While in Sydney, he got out for 97, in Brisbane, his 89* was enough to see India home in the last overs of the match.
As soon as the ball touched the long-off boundary from a straight-drive off Rishabh Pant’s bat from the bowling of Josh Hazlewood, everyone went into a state of frenzy – on the field, and on social media. Australia’s fortress for 31 Tests falls in their 32nd.
Rohit Sharma as well. Rohit, who missed the first half of the series owing to an injury, was seen celebrating with skipper, Ajinkya Rahane. While hugging Rahane, Rohit let out an expletive – could have been multiple – and was caught on the camera, the video has now, in minutes, gone viral over social media. Rohit Sharma used a curse word, “Bh*****d”, seemingly in happiness and also letting out all his frustrations and anxieties.
