In a video that became an internet hit, he was seen as very emotional while hilariously criticizing Pakistani batters for their performance and eating habits outside the stadium.

After being dismissed by left-arm spinner Mohammad Nawaz, the former India captain hammered 35 off 34 balls with one six and three fours.
