Rohit Sharma’s “Bindaas Mumbai” advice capture on camera –
It was trial by fire for Australia as they were outdone by the Indian spinners on the 3rd day of the test match. During the 2nd Innings, the cameras got panned towards, Rohit Sharma. The Indian skipper was hilarious in his forthright views when he said “Abey Mujhe Kya Dikha Raha, Udhar Dikha na”

So many of us of that age can relate to Ashwin fanboying while standing next to the then uber cool Mark Waugh 😎#INDvsAUS— Karthik Iyer (@iyerant) February 11, 2023
A thumping victory for #TeamIndia in the 1st Test of the #BorderGavaskarTrophy. Incredible by #Ashwin today to dismantle the Aussie batting with a 5-fer! Brilliant batting by #AxarPatel earlier in the day. Rohit, Jaddu, Axar and Ashwin the architects. We go 1-0 up!#INDvsAUS #BGT— Tanishq Sharma (@Tanishq72) February 11, 2023
One of the biggest reason of this embarrassing defeat for Australia is that they let the pitch and the conditions went through their mind and make it a excuse, but India comes out on top in the end.— Abdullah (@abdullahayyaz) February 11, 2023
Australia ☕☕☕😂#INDvAUS | #INDvsAUS
Rohit Sharma absolutely frustrated with his 3 spinners who were running to bowl from the more helpful end 😂😂 Jadeja said that Ashwin ran and took the ball first 😂 Rohit frustrated that these guys are nearing a milestone every game and all of them want to bowl 😂😂 #INDvsAUS— Gaurav Nandan Tripathi 🜃 (@Cric_Beyond_Ent) February 11, 2023
And they said they'll be our toughest challenge. All out in a session. There are levels to this game.#INDvsAUS— Zubaan_19 (@AineshAgarwal) February 11, 2023
Suggestion...all test matches in India going forward to be 3 day events. Day 4 to be an ODI with day 5 being T20. #INDvsAUS— Rob VDS 💙🏴🇬🇧🏴💙 (@Robinvds70) February 11, 2023
