Guptill hilariously using a cuss word for Chahal leaves Rohit in splits
After the second T20I at Eden Park in Auckland, New Zealand opener Martin Guptill was caught using a cuss word for India leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal. India comfortably aced the run-chase of 133 runs and also went on to take a 2-0 lead in the five-match series.
There were customary handshakes after the match and Guptill was caught hilariously abusing his friend Chahal on live TV. The broadcasters’ anchor Jatin Sapru was on the ground when wrist spinner Yuzvendra Chahal decided to have some fun with his mic. Chahal grabbed it from Sapru’s hand and then he went straight towards Guptill and Rohit Sharma in order to have a chat with them.
In a weird turn of events, Martin Guptill called Chahal ‘G**du’ as soon as he saw him. Guptill did not know that the mic was switched on and the camera was on them. Indian limited-overs’ captain Rohit Sharma and Yuzvendra Chahal immediately freaked out and Rohit, in particular, couldn’t control his laughter.

After New Zealand lost the match at Eden Park in Auckland, Kiwi skipper Kane Williamson said they were 15-20 runs short of a competitive total.
“It was a tough day and the wicket was quite different from the first game. As a batting unit we needed probably another 15-20 runs more for a competitive total. Credit to the Indian bowlers for the way they restricted us, credit to the Indian side that put us under pressure and outplayed us in all the departments.
Even if we had 130 on the board on a small ground, we knew we had to take early wickets. I think with the spinners we were able to take the game to a point where something had to give. They showed the experience and took the game deeper, they were clinical. I need to bat a little better perhaps.
That’s something we would like to do. I don’t think the surface changed too much. We needed to take a couple of wickets on the sluggish wicket. We were probably 15-20 runs than where we wanted to be. We need to be better in the next match. We need to keep moving forward as a group as we’re up against a tough side like India. That’s a great thing, we get to test ourselves against the best,” Kane Williamson added in a statement.
