Rohit Sharma caught using a cuss word
Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma came under fire for using a cuss word during the game against Kings XI Punjab. It is cognisance of the fact that cricket is a game of emotions. At times, players tend to lose temper and that’s what happened with Rohit Sharma. Mumbai Indians captain was not happy with the passage of play as Kings XI Punjab mounted pressure on Mumbai Indians’ bowlers.
In the end, Kings XI Punjab required 9 runs off the last over. Deepak Hooda and Chris Jordan were at the crease. Mumbai Indians tried their best with the help of Trent Boult. When two runs were required off the last ball, Jordan hit the ball and quickly ran between the wickets in search of two runs. However, he was run-out while trying to take the second run and the match ended in a tie.
It was when Mumbai skipper Rohit Sharma couldn’t control his emotions where he ended up using a cuss word which was caught on camera. The video which is doing the rounds on the internet shows Rohit using a swear word that reads: “Beh*****d”.

“It shows that 1 run and 2 runs are very very crucial in T20 cricket. I am sure it was great for viewership. Kings got the better of us and deserved the two points. Around the 11-12 over, we knew we were a couple of overs behind. Getting 170-odd, that was a good total – above-par on a track that was on the slower side. With the dimensions, we thought we can defend that. KL again batted beautifully, going down to a Super Over, congratulations to them.
‘What’s the worse that can happen?’ That’s how I look at life and that’s how I look at things. It’s a game of cricket, you go out there to do your best, you prepare, there’s a process and the situation dictates what happens. We were on the losing side tonight. We should have won this I believe deep down but these things happen. We have been playing good cricket, even today we played a very good cricket game. It’s a matter of trying to improve each and every time. There are a couple of areas we need to improve on,” Kieron Pollard, MI’s stand-in captain said at the post-match presentation
