‘Isko toh kuch bhi daal’: Another Rohit stump-mic quip goes viral. Watch

NEW DELHI: Well known for his witty responses and viral on-field one-liners, India skipper Rohit Sharma produced another gem on the opening day of the fifth and final Test against England in Dharamsala when Jonny Bairstow walked out to bat.
As soon as Bairstow arrived to the middle after the fall of Zak Crawley, Rohit’s conversation with his fellow players was caught on stump mic.
In the chat, Rohit was heard saying, “Isko Toh Kuch Bhi Daal (Bowl whatever you want to him)”, suggesting bowler Kuldeep Yadav, he can bowl anything to Bairstow.
The video of the funny incident instantly went viral on social media.
Earlier, Rohit highlighted that his one-liners and funny chats aren’t deliberate. The skipper said he just regularly communicates with fielders and these discussions inadvertently get captured on the microphone.
“See, I don’t have any favourite line as such and I don’t even do it deliberately. Now I am the captain so I stand in the slips, because the angle from there helps me get a better look at the fielders and take stock of DRS. So I keep talking to the fielders and it gets recorded,” Rohit said.
England were bowled out for 218 in the final session on Day 1 with Kuldeep Yadav grabbing a fifer and Ashwin picking up four wickets.
Amid a blistering start from the openers, India reached 135 for one at the close of play on opening day.
While Yashasvi Jaiswal fired 58-ball 57 before falling late in the day, skipper Rohit remained unbeaten on 53 alongside Shubman Gill, who was on 26 at stumps. India trailed by another 83 runs.
The hosts already have an unassailable 3-1 lead in the 5-match series.
