Ravi Shastri In a Spot After Making Obscene Comment on Live TV

India’s head coach Ravi Shastri could not keep his emotions in check after the historic win in the first Test at the Adelaide Oval and made a tongue-in-cheek comment on national television that quickly went viral on social media.

Speaking to Sunil Gavaskar, Michael Clarke and Mark Butcher, who were discussing the game in a television studio in Mumbai, Shastri came up with a rather interesting way to describe the tense moments of the game with Australia almost pulling-off a record chase.

"I just said in Hindi just a little while ago bilkul chhorenge nahi ... Lekin thodi der ke liye wahan g*** muh mein tha (we will go for the kill ... but for sometime we had our **** in our mouths)," said Shastri on air, describing his feelings after the hosts showed a lot of fight on day five and fell just 31-run short of the 323-run target.

The coach was expectedly happy with the hard-fought victory, also India's first in the opening Test of a series in Australia.

Moments after he expressed his feelings to Gavaskar and Co, his comment set the social media world abuzz.

The former India all-rounder is also a seasoned commentator and was a familiar figure on the mic before taking charge as India coach.
