Did you know that Australia was the first country India went on a tour of after its independence? Well, it’s true. And ever since then, India and Australia have been a part of many interesting matches. Currently, the two nations are competing to win the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. And Ravi Shastri is guiding the Indian cricket team in the test series as the team Coach.
As you all must know, India won the first test of the series by 31 runs. And it was a nail-biting experience for all the viewers and players alike. As is customary, after the win, Indian coach Ravi Shastri gave a post-match interview.
There he said something that has stirred up quite a storm. During the interview, Sunil Gavaskar said to Ravi, ‘Chhodna Mat’. By this, he meant to request Shatri to not spare the Aussie team and keep on winning.
This is what Ravi Shastri said in response:
“Bilkul chodenge nahi, lekin, thoda der ke liye wahan goti muh mein thi”

Rough translation of this statement is that our balls had come to our throat for a while during the match. Now we are near sure that Shastri said it all in good humor. Irrespective of it, this incident has caught on like wildfire. The video is going viral on the internet and Twitter is full of reactions.
This is how some of the tweets went like:
Ravi Shastri really said this on national (international) TV??
Did Ravi Shastri just say ‘thodi der ke liye Gota Muh mei tha’ on national TV.
Oh yes he did.

Ravi’s record of making bombastic statements after every win continues.
#RaviShastri maintains his record of bombastic statements after every victory. And it remains a mystery as to where he disappears after every loss.

Well, well, well! So what do you think? Do you believe Ravi did not mean anything bad by what he said, and it’s all okay? Or should he have been more careful?
