Rohit Sharma is the latest addition to this list. Generally Rohit is not known for his abusive side on the field. He is normally a gentleman and always remains calm. But this happened in the recently concluded first Test against South Africa at Vizag.
It was Rohit’s first Test as an opener and he made full use of the opportunity. He blasted 176 in the first innings and later backed it up with 127 in the second innings. India won the match by 203 runs and Rohit was named the Man of the Match.
The one-liner incident happened in the second innings of India’s batting. Rohit nudged a delivery from Dane Piedt towards covers. He wanted to take a single but Cheteshwar Pujara denied it. As a result Rohit had to return to his crease. While returning Rohit said, “Puji bhaag bh*****d”. This one-liner was caught by the stump mic and later it went viral on social media.

5. Jadeja’s slip of tongue in press conference
After his poor performances in 2015, Ravindra Jadeja was left out from all formats. But after he found his mojo in domestic circuit, Jadeja was called back. He performed well against South Africa in 2015 Test series. After that he was selected for white-ball cricket too.
In 2016, when the Kiwis came to India, Jadeja and his spin-twin Ravichandran Ashwin had a great day. Jaddu took five wickets while Ashwin bagged four. After the end of the day, Jadeja was sent to give an interview in the press conference.
When Jaddu was asked about the nature of the pitch, he said it was difficult for the new batsman with all the footmarks around. Jadeja exactly said, “Turning track pe jabhi naya batsman ayega toh uske liye footmarks dekh ke udhar hi unki……. [Whenever a new batsman walks in on a turning track, looking at the footmarks ….]”.
After that he paused for a moment and gave a chuckle. Jaddu was about to say an abusive word but somehow he managed to control himself. The reporters however understood it and they couldn’t control their laughter. It was indeed a slip of tongue for Jadeja.
