After India's historic Test win against Australia at Adelaide on Monday, head coach Ravi Shastri set Twitter on fire with his tongue-in-cheek comment.
In the post-match television interview with experts in the studio, Sunil Gavaskar and Michael Clarke, Shastri said, "I just said in Hindi just a little while ago bilkul chhodenge nahi, lekin thodi der ke liye waha pad g** meh me tha."
The statement garnered mixed reactions from Indian cricket fans.

#RaviShastri maintains his record of bombastic statements after every victory. And it remains a mystery as to where he disappears after every loss.— Avinash Shishoo (@laidback1954) December 10, 2018
