Virender Sehwag mocks Nathan Coulter-Nile for his name during commentary, compares with Neil Nitin Mukesh

During the 2nd India vs Australia ODI, Sehwag took a funny dig at the Australian pacer Nathan Coulter-Nile for having three names and compared his name to Neil Nitin Mukesh

Like how Indian cricket team seems to be taking revenge for all their previous losses to Australia, Virender Sehwag, too, is taking Hindi commentary to an extraordinary level with every match. The former Indian opener has become quite socially active and is known for his witty tweets. He also carries his wittiness in the Hindi commentary box and thus, the essence gets mixed with the match and the watching becomes incredibly entertaining.

During the 2nd India vs Australia ODI at the Eden Gardens, Sehwag took a funny dig at the Australian pacer Nathan Coulter-Nile. Since the bowler has a considerably long name, Viru Paji compared him with Bollywood actor Neil Nitin Mukesh who also has a long name.

He said,

Nathan Coulter Nile ke teen naam hain just like Neil Nitin Mukesh.

People present at the commentary box couldn’t stop laughing at this statement while people on Twitter reacted within no time.

Later, Coulter-Nile went to take three wickets in the first innings and dismissed Indian skipper Rohit Sharma (7), Virat Kohli (92) and Kedar Jadhav (24) and the Twitterati compared 3 wickets to the bowler’s 3 names.

Even though Coulter-Nile took 3 wickets, the Indian bowlers overshadowed the performance of the Aussies. Steven Smith & Co failed to chase 253 runs and lost the game by 50 runs. The 3rd ODI is scheduled to be played at the Holkar Stadium, Indore on September 24.
