An amusing incident occurred on the first day of the test match which was played in Delhi between India and Australia (IND vs AUS). When Australia’s batting was happening here, Virat Kohli was passing the message to bowler R Ashwin in Hindi, but he forgot that Usman Khawaja, standing at the batting end, understands Hindi very well. When he realized this, he was seen laughing fiercely.
This incident occurred on the 29th of the Australian innings. The Australia team had lost 3 wickets for 100 runs and Usman Khawaja and Travis Head were present on the field. Opener Usman Khawaja was holding one end and was hitting 51 runs. Meanwhile, Ashwin bowled a ball, which was well defended by Khawaja. After this, Kohli was seen telling Ashwin that “Ash…yeh ball maar raha tha ye”. As soon as Kohli said this, Usman Khawaja smiled at him and Kohli understood that Khawaja also knows Hindi. After this, he laughed out loud.

Actually, Usman Khwaja is of Pakistani origin. His mother and father are from Pakistan, who settled in Australia. In such a situation, Usman Khwaja understands and speaks Hindi very well.
Usman Khawaja was sacked after scoring 81 runs off 125 balls in the first innings of the Delhi Test. Aside from Khawaja, Peter Handscomb (72) also played an unbeaten half century. Thanks to these two batsmen, Team Australia scored 263 runs in the first innings. Here, Indian fast bowler Mohammed Shami took 4 and Ashwin and Jadeja took 3-3 wickets.
