Cricket is a gentleman's game, they say. However, at time, players let out emotions and swear at teammates and oppositions that doesn't the sport for family viewing.
India captain Virat Kohli is known for wearing his heart on his sleeves and, at times, he has crossed line. Kohli has been caught in the past swearing on the stump mics and on television cameras.
As it turned out, cricket fans in India mentioned and trolled Ben Stokes when Virat Kohli used a particular cuss word that rhymes with the England cricketer's name.
On Saturday, Rohit Sharma was at it as he was apparently caught on the stump mic swearing at Cheteshwar Pujara. Rohit was frustrated when Pujara declined a single that the newly-promoted India opener felt was there for the taking.
Ben Stokes took to Twitter and came up with a cheeky post: "This time it’s Rohit not Virat....if you know you know," the World Cup-winning England all-rounder wrote.

Rohit Sharma has been in terrific form in his maiden Test match as opener. After scoring 160 in the first innings, Rohit is on course to complete a double in the Visakhapatnam Test.
After taking a lead of 71 runs in the 1st innings, India lost Mayank Agarwal early. However, Cheteshwar Pujara and Rohit Sharma steadied the ship.
Rohit played aggressive cricket right from the word go and broke the record for the most number of sixes hit by an Indian in a Test match.
Pujara took his time but changed gears after the first drinks break of the extended 2nd session of the ongoing Test. At Tea, Rohit remained unbeaten on 84, having struck 7 fours and 4 sixes at a strike rate of over 70. Pujara was unbeaten on 75 as he hit 13 boundaries and a six in a well-paced knock.
