England spinner Shoaib Bashir and Team India batter Sarfaraz Khan were engaged in a hilarious banter that caught on the stump mic during Day 2 of the ongoing fourth Test at JCA Cricket Stadium Complex on Saturday, February 24.

The incident took place during England's first innings batting and Shoaib Bashir was at the strike rate. Sarfaraz Khan, who was fielding near the crease, earmarked to Bashir that he doesn't know Hindi. But the England youngster hilariously responded by saying he knows Hindi a bit while saying it in the language.

Sarfaraz Khan: Isko to Hindi nahi aati hain

Shoaib Bashir: Thodi thodi aati hai Hindi

For unversed, Shoaib Bashir is of Pakistani origin, born to parents who migrated to England before his birth. Bashir made his international debut for England in the second Test in Hyderabad. Bashir was in the news after he was involved in a visa issues that delayed his arrival to India from Dubai, where England team was training.

Shoaib Bashir was dropped from playing XI to bring in Mark Wood for the Rajkot Test and returned to the team after Rehan Ahmed was ruled out of remaining matches of the series due to personal reasons.

England bundle out for 353 in first innings

England were in a good position with 302/7 despite suffering an early collapse in their batting line-up on Day 1. However, on Day 2, visitors managed to add only 51 runs to their total as they were bundled out for 353 in their first innings.

Ollie Robinson carried on his innings from 31 not out and registered a maiden Test fifty in 81 balls. He formed a crucial 102-run partnership with Joe Root for the fourth wicket before Robinson was dismissed for 58 at 347/8. Thereafter, England lost last two wickets in just 6 runs as Shoaib Bashir (0) and James Anderson (0) were dismissed for ducks.

Joe Root remained unbeaten throughout the innings as he scored a gritty 122 off 274 balls. For the first time in this Test series, Root didn't get out in an innings.
