When it comes to cricket, the high octane action and the adrenaline rush sometimes take the better of players on the field, giving us some of the best OMG moments. However, when it comes to sledging and cussing on the field, Indian cricketers have no match.
Be it a dropped catch or a wrong decision by umpires, we have seen many Indian players calling out someone’s mother or sister. Language is indeed a blessing to humans as this how we express ourselves, however, when it comes to cursing, celebrities need to think twice as there are many who follow or idealize them.
This brings us to the Indian skipper, Virat Kohli, who is known to be the most arrogant and short-tempered member of the squad, having the tag of ‘Angry Young Man Of modern Day Cricket’. Once again, he is in news for using the wrong language and while he has done the same on many occasions but this time around, his voice got recorded on the stump mic.
He was recorded using a not-so-appropriate word during the ongoing South Africa vs India 2nd Test which is a do or die match for the visitors if they want to win their first ever Test series in South Africa.
During his partnership with Murali Vijay on day 2, he said and we quote, “SHAAM TAK KHELENGE, G**ND PHAT JAYEGI”.
While this shows that how eager the Indian skipper is to turn the tables by coming back from down under, the language might seem a little inappropriate to many.
One of the Twitter users recorded this video and uploaded it to the social media portal via his handle, which as expected, went viral.
Watch the video here.

As for the South Africa vs India 2nd Test, Virat Kohli has registered his 21st Test century in International cricket and is standing strong at the crease to cover up the 335-run trail given by the Proteas in the first innings.
