In a latest interview, Indian skipper Rohit Sharma reflected on India's 4-1 Test victory in the recently concluded India vs England Test series. Speaking about the same, he revealed how he loved playing alongside the youngsters, who put up a great show on the field throughout the series.

He also revealed the backstory of various hilarious moments that took place on the field during the series and also shared the reason behind his 'koi garden me nahi ghumega (no one will roam in the garden)' comment.


Rohit amused everyone with his comments on the ground which were captured by the stump mic. One such incident happened when Rohit was caught speaking, "Koi garden mai nahi ghumega (No one will roam around in the garden)”

This was followed by a post on Rohit's Instagram which was a picture of Rohit along with Yashasvi Jaiswal, Sarfaraz Khan, Shubman Gill and Dhruv Jurel captioned as, "Garden me ghumne vale ladke."

However, in a latest interview, Rohit explained what was the story behind this entire statement and the motive behind it was to make sure that all the players are always vigilant and do not take the job for granted.

"Sometimes I say things that are caught on the stump mic. But that’s me, that’s how I am. It is not to hurt anyone, but just to make sure that they are on the job, they’re thinking about the team and making a difference on the field. And I was very pleased to see everyone engage into that. That is this whole thing about me trying to tell them ki bhai, koi yaha pe ghumega nahi. Just make sure that you don’t forget the job in hand," Rohit said.

He added, "Whether it is me shouting at them, whether it is getting Sarfaraz to stand in one position, or whether me telling Jurel, ‘Bhai, isko aage bhadao, stumping nikalke dikha."


Expressing his emotions on playing with the youngsters, Rohit revealed that he had a great time with all the boys who also made the nation proud by playing their crucial role in the Test series at various important junctures.

"I personally had so much fun working with these guys. All these young boys mischievous. I really enjoyed working with them. I have seen all these youngsters playing. So I really enjoyed it."

Rohit also revealed that the stunning stumping done by Dhruv Jurel to dismiss Ollie Pope in the last match was actually predicted by Sarfaraz Khan. It was Sarfaraz who predicted that Pope will step out and hence, this helped Jurel in acting quickly and dismissing the English batter.

“By the way, that stumping was brilliant. Sarfaraz Khan was the one who predicted that. I had stationed him a bit further up, in short leg, when he said, ‘Now, he’ll leave the crease. Be ready for a stumping.’ Next ball…. brilliant,” Rohit said.

India was able to beat England by 4-1 in the recently concluded Test series. The series saw the debut of 5 youngsters who took everyone by storm with their stunning performances as they helped the team clinch a brilliant series victory over the hosts.

This was also Ben Stokes' first Test series loss as the England skipper and it also reduced the hype around Bazball.
