Ross Taylor has made the most of playing in the Indian Premier League and against the Indian team. The New Zealand player has picked up a number of Hindi words and gave another example of it on Sunday after the fifth and final T20I against India at the Bay Oval.

In 2016 too, Ross Taylor had left the Indian fans pleasantly surprised with his knowledge of Hindi although it was a Hindi cuss word. During the Eden Gardens Test, Ross Taylor had famously said behenc**d after an LBW appeal against Virat Kohli was turned down by umpire. Even Virat Kohli was left in splits with Ross Taylor’s comment.

And on Sunday, Taylor did it again although this time around, he did not use a cuss word. In the latest turn of events, he nonchalantly said ‘Thik hai’ after a cameraman asked him to change his position. Impressed with his comment, a cameraman then asked the veteran batsman whether he could question him in the Hindi language. In reply, Taylor hilariously said that he would response in Hindi too.

Here is a clip of that incident:

Meanwhile, Taylor scored two fifties in the just-concluded five-match T20I series against India but could not prevent a whitewash for his team. In the fifth game too, he scored a fifty but it was just not enough for his team to cross the finishing line as the Black Caps lost the game by seven runs.

Batting first, India posted 163 for 3 in the allotted 20 overs. Rohit Sharma top-scored for the hosts, scoring 60 before retiring hurt. In reply, New Zealand ended up on 156 for 9. The Black Caps were off to a disastrous start as they were reduced to 17 for 3.

However, a 99-run stand between Tim Seifert and Ross Taylor put them in a strong position before they suffered an almighty collapse to end up on 156 for 9. Both Taylor and Seifert scored fifties but their efforts were not enough to ensure a win for the side.
