Rohit Sharma-led Team India once again emerged victorious in the dream run during their ODI World Cup 2023 campaign. Riding on the outstanding performances from the bowlers, the men in blue bundled out mighty South Africa just at the score of 83 runs while the latter were chasing the target of 327 runs in the second innings.
Meanwhile, the veteran in-form Indian pacer Mohammed Shami came up with a brutal dig on the Proteas when he was in a conversation with Mohammed Kaif during a post-match show on Star Sports.
The video of this funny and savage reply from Mohammed Shami is also making rounds on social media and has gone viral after a user shared it on X (formerly Twitter).
“You beat Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. Where will we get a new team now, from the moon?” asked the former Indian cricketer Mohammed Kaif to Mohammed Shami with laughs.
“Har baar 400 paar karne waalon ka haal dekho (Look at the condition of the team that has been scoring 400 runs often),” replied Shami with a sarcastic smile.
Here’s the video of Mohammed Shami taking a dig at South Africa's poor performance:

Speaking of the action of the match between India and South Africa at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata, the hosts skipper Rohit Sharma won the flip of the coin and asked his batters to take the charge first. Rohit himself started in a blistering mode for India, scoring a quick 40-run knock off just 24 balls, with 6 fours and 2 sixes, taking India’s score to 62 runs in just 5.5 overs.
Later, the former skipper and the modern-day batting great, Virat Kohli smashed his career’s 49th ODI century, scoring unbeaten 101 runs, with 10 fours. He was also accompanied by Shreyas Iyer who scored 77 runs, hitting 7 fours and 2 sixes to help India post a big total of 326 runs for the loss of 5 wickets in the allotted 50 overs, which looked impossible for South Africa in the second innings and they lost the match by 243 runs.
