The ongoing India vs England Test match in Vizag has been completely dominated by India. Yashasvi Jaiswal smashed his maiden double century, and India concluded their first innings at 396 runs. The second innings saw Jasprit Bumrah wreaking havoc as he claimed 6 wickets, and the visitors’ Bazball approach was restricted to 253 runs. On the third day, India will resume their innings at 28 runs with openers, Rohit Sharma and Yashasvi Jaiswal, at the crease.
Rohit Sharma caught abusing India fielders during Vizag Test
During the 2nd day, Rohit Sharma was caught on the stump mic expressing frustration and using strong language while addressing his teammates. In the 32nd over of England’s innings, the Indian skipper heard instructing Indian fielders in a somewhat inappropriate manner. He said, “Koi garden me ghumega to Maa **** dunga sabka”
It roughly means that he instructed the fielders to become more active on the field and not to roam around. The video is circulating on the internet. However, it’s not the first time Rohit has been caught using this kind of language on the field.

Rohit Sharma has had a lukewarm series with the bat so far. In the first Test, he managed to score 63 runs, while in the first innings of the ongoing match, he was trapped by the debutant Shoaib Bashir at 14. However, Rohit looked to be in good touch at the end of the day today. Before the stumps, he faced 13 balls and scored 3 boundaries. On the third day, fans will hope for him to have a great outing.
India is currently leading by 171 runs, and with three more days yet to be played, they would aim to set a 400-plus target in front of the visitors. After facing criticism following the loss in the Hyderabad test, a victory in the Vizag Test is surely going to provide relief to Rohit Sharma.
