“Ye last mein apne jb maara match easy ho gaya tha, sabko pata tha hum jeet rahe hain, aap helmet utaar ke kyun aise karne lage? (the last ball you hit, everyone knew we’re gonna win it, it was an easy course from there, then why did you gesture like that and took off your helmet?)” 

Replying to this, Nehal Wahera, “It happened in the moment, the crowd was cheering so loud for us that it just happened naturally,” he added.
