India captain Rohit Sharma, often known for his cool and composed nature, appeared visibly frustrated on Day 1 of the World Test Championship final against Australia at The Oval. He was caught on camera using foul language directed towards one of his teammates.
The incident happened in the second session of the day, while making changes in the field when the 36-year-old vented his frustration by using foul language, asking one of his teammates, ‘Kya kar rahe ho *’ [Translation: ‘What the hell are you doing ****^?’]
The incident was recorded on video and quickly spread across social media platforms.
Rohit Sharma’s frustration and anger on the first day of the marquee event can be attributed, in part, to his bowlers’ inability to take wickets, allowing Steve Smith and Travis Head to build a formidable unbeaten partnership of 251 runs for the fourth wicket.
While Smith is batting at unbeaten 95, Travis Head looked in a sueper touch as he became the first batter in the history to score a century in the World Test Championship. Head will resume batting at 146 (off 156) on the second day of the match.
