Ravi Shastri’s hilarious comment on yesterdays win has created the latest internet sensation.
It was a very intense match yesterday, for both the players and fans. India needed six wickets to win the opening test match on Australian soil while the hosts needed to score 219 runs for victory.
In the nail-biting match, Australians needed more than 130 runs after their early wickets. The score seemed impossible to chase but the performance of Pat Cummins (28), Mitchell Starc (28), Nathan Lyon (38 not out) and Josh Hazlewood (13) gave fans hope that they might attain the impossible.
But what was Ravi Shastri’s hilarious comment on this?
Things were very intense for all the players and the fans who were watching the game. But, it was Ravi Shastri’s comment on how the Indian cricket team was actually feeling that made everyone break down in fits of laughter.
After the match, Ravi Shastri came forward for a live interview in Hindi, where he ended up saying his thoughts out loud in the most unfiltered version. Which was: “We will not spare them at all but we had balls in our mouth for a short time there.”
When translated in Hindi, his comment sounded something like, “Chhod na mat, thodi der ke liye goti mooh mein tha.”
Ravi Shastri is a former test cricket champion. Everyone respects him, but his way of describing the exact emotion of the Indian cricket team made everyone go bonkers. And of course, Netizens can’t stop talking about it.
Social media couldn’t believe that one of the legends of cricket could make such a statement on a live TV broadcast.
See some of the funniest tweets and exactly what he has said.

So #RaviShastri says “waha thode der goti mu me tha” don’t know whether to applaud him for his honesty or criticise him from his crass remarks on live broadcast. Any ideas guys? @neerubhatia3 @DiggySinghDeo @alter_jamie
