Team India captain Rohit Sharma's conversations heard over stump mic continues to amuse fans as an incident of the same went viral on day 3 of the 3rd Test against England in Rajkot. Keeping in mind the slow over-rate fines, Rohit Sharma called for the ball to be picked up from the boundary as soon as possible.

The incident occurred in the 68th over of England's innings as Tom Hartley hit a boundary off left-arm Ravindra Jadeja's bowling, straight past the stumps. With the ball going all the way towards the boundary, the 37-year-old opener wasn't impressed as fetching the ball took an extra bit of time.

In the viral clip, Rohit said:

"Jaldi toh mangao ball yaar, hum log teen over piche hai, agar ye log all out hogaye na to hmlog ko wo lagega."

(Please get the ball fast, we are already 3 overs behind. If England get bowled out, we will be fined).

By the time of the incident, the Englishmen had collapsed to 305-7 from a strong position of 224-2. Mohammed Siraj was the pick of the bowlers for India, picking up 4 wickets, while the others also stepped up in Ravichandran Ashwin's absence as the hosts took a 126-run lead in reply to India's 445.

Yashasvi Jaiswal puts India in the driver's seat after day 3:

India capitalized on the 126-run lead well enough despite losing Rohit Sharma for 19. However, Jaiswal and Shubman Gill put a deflated England's bowling unit to the sword, adding 155. Jaiswal completed his century off 122 deliveries before retiring hurt due to back spasm.

England also got a late wicket as Rajat Patidar fell for a duck while trying to put away a short-of-a-length delivery from Tom Hartley away to the boundary. With the lead 322 already, the hosts have the opportunity to bury England.
