India, in their quest for an early declaration, was pushing hard for quick runs on Day 4 of the first Test against South Africa. But, unfortunately, Cheteshwar Pujara wasn’t able to get a move on. And when a zoned out Pujara declined an easy single, Rohit Sharma lost his cool and was apparently caught on the stump mic swearing at his partner.

Apparently, Pujara who was playing quite restrictively until then received a message from Kohli during the drinks and started taking apart the Proteas bowling. The cursing seemed to work as well, as the Saurashtra batsman, who had 8 runs from 61 balls, completed his fifty in 106 balls and even hit a six, along with 9 fours.
FIFTY!@cheteshwar1 brings up his 21st Test half-century with a boundary in the covers.

Well, whenever someone utters the curse word that Rohit said, the lip movement seems like they are calling out to England all-rounder Ben Stokes. The word is a favorite of Indian captain Virat Kohli and every time he used to utter it, Twitterati would share the image or video and tag Stokes in it which ultimately got on the nerve of the English cricketer.
However, this time, Stokes decided to take a humorous dig at Rohit and tweeted, “This time it’s Rohit, not Virat..if you know you know”.
This time it’s Rohit not Virat….if you know you know 😂
