Rohit Sharma’s Witty On-Field Banter with Kuldeep Yadav Goes Viral

Indian cricket captain Rohit Sharma is renowned for his quick wit and humorous on-field remarks. On the opening day of the fifth and final Test against England in Dharamsala, Rohit delivered another memorable one-liner that has gone viral on social media.

As Jonny Bairstow walked out to bat after the dismissal of Zak Crawley, Rohit’s conversation with his teammates was captured on the stump microphone. “Isko Toh Kuch Bhi Daal (Bowl whatever you want to him),” Rohit was heard saying to bowler Kuldeep Yadav, suggesting that he could bowl anything to Bairstow.

The video of the amusing incident quickly spread across social media platforms. Rohit later clarified that his funny chats and one-liners are not deliberate. He explained that he regularly communicates with fielders, and these discussions often get recorded by the microphone.

“I don’t have any favorite line as such and I don’t even do it deliberately,” Rohit said. “Now I am the captain so I stand in the slips, because the angle from there helps me get a better look at the fielders and take stock of DRS. So I keep talking to the fielders and it gets recorded.”

On the field, England were bowled out for 218 in the final session on Day 1, with Kuldeep Yadav claiming a five-wicket haul and Ravichandran Ashwin picking up four wickets. India reached 135 for one at the close of play, with Yashasvi Jaiswal scoring a 58-ball 57 and Rohit remaining unbeaten on 53 alongside Shubman Gill (26 not out).

The hosts already hold an unassailable 3-1 lead in the five-match series. The final Test in Dharamsala is expected to be a closely contested affair, with both teams looking to end the series on a high note.
