‘We are Indians and will speak in Hindi only’: Rohit Sharma shuts trolls asking him to speak in English
New Delhi | Jagran Sports Desk: The coronavirus outbreak has put a break on the sporting events across the world, be it, the Wimbledon or Olympics or the multi-million cricketing event Indian Premier League (IPL). The coronavirus outbreak has led to a lockdown across countries and halted the normal life of the people.
In India, where the virus has infected over 1,900 people has claimed over 50 lives, it has forced the government to impose a 21-day nation-wide lockdown. Although, the lockdown has given a forced but much needed break to our cricketers from their hectic schedule. The cricketers, be it the skipper Virat Kohli or vice-captain Rohit Sharma, are spending time with their families and also treating their fans on the social media with posts and live session talks.
Recently, the star batsman Rohit Sharma and ace pacer Jasprit Bumrah held a live session on Instagram to chat and the session was loved by their fans, who left amusing comments and likes on the video chat.
During the session, Rohit and Bumrah talked about number of things, including the postponement of IPL and their teammates. Rohit Sharma also roasted Rishabh Pant after Bumrah told him that the young wicketkeeper-batsman wants to challenge him in hitting the biggest six.
The live session also witnessed an irritated Rohit Sharma, who got annoyed after the fans repeatedly urged the two to talk in English. Unimpressed with comments of the fans, Rohit Sharma iterated that they both are Indians and will continue to talk in Hindi. “They are saying speak in English, no we are Indians we will be speaking in Hindi only,” Rohit told Bumrah. To which Bumrah replied that ‘if they started to talk in English, people will object why they are speaking in English’

In reply, the Indian opener played down the challenge in hilarious manner, saying, "Mere sath usko karna hai? ek saal hua nahi usko cricket khelke, chhakke ka competition kar rha hai (He wants to compete against me? He has played cricket for hardly a year and wants to have a competition).
