New Delhi - Coach
Ravi Shastri has made social media come alive with his cheeky TV
comments after his side became the first Indian team to win a Test
series-opener on Australian soil.
The Virat Kohli-led team overcame tough resistance from Australia's
lower order batsmen to win by 31 runs and lead the four-match series in
Adelaide on Monday.
An excited Shastri then gave a live TV interview in Hindi, saying
"for a little while we had our balls in our mouth" during a studio chat
with former captain Sunil Gavaskar.
Gavaskar seemed a little taken aback by his ex-team-mate's remark and
refused to translate it on air, saying "This is a family channel".
But Twitter had a ball as many couldn't believe that the 56-year-old former Test star uttered those words on TV.
"Yes India has won a Test in Adelaide but for the last 10 mins, I
haven't stopped wondering in half laugh, half shock at Shastri's
comment. Whattay," said a Twitter user who goes by one name in Nikhil.
"Ravi Shastri just gave us the line by which we will remember this
tour for years. #GotiMooMeinTha," another Twitter user, Malay Desai
wrote on his handle.
India have never won a Test series in Australia as they head for the second Test starting on December 14 in Perth.
