On Saturday, February 3, on Day 2 of the second India vs. England Test in Visakhapatnam, India captain Rohit Sharma was discovered insulting his teammates. The event happened with England on 143/4 after the 31st over. The Indian captain appeared to be requesting his fielders to remain vigilant in between the over-changes, using some foul language in the process.

Notably, India lost the Hyderabad Test by 28 runs as a result of their indolent play in the second innings. Because of this, the captain didn't want to lose focus on the field and allow the game to slip away, as it did in the first game.

Speaking into the stump mike, Rohit said, 'Koi bhi garden me ghoomega to, ##########.'

Returning to the game, Yashasvi Jaiswal carried on his score of 179 from the previous night as India maintained their innings on Day 2 at 336/6 in 93 overs. After Sunil Gavaskar and Vinod Kambli, the 22-year-old went on to score his first double-century in Test cricket and became the third-youngest batsman to reach the milestone.

But he received little help from others, and when he attempted to raise the stakes on 209, he was fired. India was then bowled out for 396, with James Anderson emerging as England's best bowler with stats of 3/47.

Jasprit Bumrah's Outstanding Performance

In response, England started well once more thanks to openers Ben Duckett (21 off 17) and Zak Crawley, who combined to score 59 runs off just 62 balls for the first wicket. When Duckett was dismissed by Kuldeep Yadav after being caught at first slip, India secured their first victory.

Crawley, though, persisted in his onslaught and managed to score a rapid 76 (78) before being removed at one point because of some outstanding fielding by Shreyas Iyer. Jasprit Bumrah was summoned back into the attack by captain Rohit Sharma after he was dismissed, and the seamer did not let him down, taking important wickets of Joe Root (5 off 10), Ollie Pope (23 off 55), and Jonny Bairstow (25 off 39) to leave England on 159/5 after 36 overs.
