Team India are currently preparing for the fourth Test against Australia in the ongoing Border-Gavaskar Trophy. After losing the third match in Indore, the Men in Blue will look to bounce back in Ahmedabad, starting from 9 March 2023. However, on 8 March, all players from the home side were seen celebrating the ‘Holi’ festival in the team bus.
Several players like Shubman Gill and Shreyas Iyer shared the video on their official Instagram accounts. Those videos went viral instantly as players like Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and others were seen celebrating Holi together. However, in the video shared by Iyer, Kohli was seen using abusive language, and listening to that, fans went crazy.
Here is the shared video:

“Someone has to step up, someone has to take down the bowlers.” – Rohit Sharma on Shreyas Iyer
Speaking about Shreyas Iyer, he has failed to score big so far in the ongoing BGT. Iyer has scored 42 runs. Despite the loss, skipper Rohit Sharma praised Shreyas Iyer for playing a counter-attacking knock in the second innings of that match. He said: “When you’re playing on pitches like this, you need a Shreyas Iyer kind of an inning. Someone has to step up, someone has to take down the bowlers.”
“It cannot always be that the batters will get 100 runs, 90 runs, 80 runs, you have to play cameos like that. If one of the top batters can get a big score, that’s a plus, that’s great, but when you know the pitch has some offering, there is a challenge, you need guys to go out there and play the way Iyer did, even though it [his dismissal] was a little unlucky or unfortunate, I would say, he timed the ball really well, straight went into the hands – not straight into the hands, Khawaja took a very good catch – but you need that kind of innings,” Rohit concluded.
Not only Iyer, but all Indian batters also failed miserably in the ongoing Test series against the Aussies. Virat Kohli has scored 111 runs in five innings while only the skipper Rohit has scored the only century for team India in this series.
Here is how fans have reacted to the viral video where Virat Kohli was seen using abusive language while celebrating Holi with his teammates:
