India’s convincing run chase with Shardul Thakur’s cameo helped them to win the One day International series against Pollard led West Indies team. When the team needed less than 30 runs, Virat Kohli, a well settled batsman got out unexpectedly. He scored 85 runs when he edged the ball onto the stumps to get out.
Meanwhile, Jadeja’s calculative innings also played a major role in India chasing down the huge target of 315 runs. He scored an unbeaten 39 runs from 31 balls. India relied on a key 58-run sixth-wicket stand between Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja. West Indian pace bowler Keemo Paul claimed three wickets, including that of Kohli in the 47th over, before Jadeja and Shardul Thakur, 17 not out, took the team home and to a 2-1 series win.
Meanwhile, Harsha Bhogle, one of the commentator and presenter of the match, interviewed Shardul Thakur and Ravindra Jadeja during the post match. While interacting with Jadeja, Harsha Bhogle questioned him in Hindi to which the all rounder answered in English. This moment interested the netizens who started praising the cricketer for his surprise to Harsha.

He further added that he shifted to English once the indication came from the allrounder.

Okay, since I have been flooded with responses on this…. In a post match presentation, you always go in the language the player is most comfortable in. I've known Jadeja for 10 yrs now and so began in his language. The moment he indicated he was good to go in English, I shifted— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) December 22, 2019
