Virat Kohli calls Ravindra Jadeja a ‘Pathan’, Stump Mic talks. Watch




Despite bowling Australia out for 263 on the first day of the second Test, Team India failed to stamp their authority as Usman Khawaja (81) and Peter Handscomb (72*) managed to save the visitors in Delhi. However, India, who beat Australia in the series-opener in Nagpur to take a 1-0 series lead, are slightly ahead in the contest on the second day. Mohammed Shami took four wickets, while spin wizards Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin took six wickets each.

Jadeja, who was elected ‘Man of the Match’ in the first Test, once again troubled the Australian batsmen. The 34-year-old now has a new name, courtesy Virat Kohli.

In the 64th over of Australia’s innings, after Handscomb and Pat Cummins (33) stitched a decent seventh-wicket partnership, Kohli was seen prodding Jadeja to take the wicket.

In a video uploaded on Twitter, Kohli is seen shouting, “Chal Pathan. Chal Pathan out karke de shabaash.”

Kohli’s words succeeded in motivating Jadeja as he dismissed both Cummins and Todd Murphy in the 68th over.

Shami wrapped up the Australian innings in the final session as he bowled Lyon and Kuhnmann for 10 and six respectively.

India are 21 for no loss at stumps and the hosts still trail Australia by 242 runs. Captain Rohit Sharma was batting on 13 and KL Rahul on four.

Australia worked with spin from the second over itself, with debutants Matthew Kuhnmann and Nathan Lyon bowling six overs between them.
