Former South Africa skipper Dean Elgar recently came up with a big revelation about the former Indian skipper and the modern-day batting great, Virat Kohl. Notably, Elgar hung his boots in international cricket earlier this month. The former Proteas batting stalwart played the last Test of his career in the second and last Test of the two-match series against India.
Meanwhile, Dean Elgar recalled an incident from South Africa’s tour of India nine years back in the year 2015. The incident involved Elgar and the then-Indian skipper Virat Kohli. The incident which Elgar recalled happened during the first Test of the four-match series; both teams played this match at the IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali.
Here's what Dean Elgar said about Virat Kohli
Elgar revealed that the hosts’ skipper Kohli ‘spat’ at him during the series opener of the four-match Test Series in Mohali.
“Those wickets were jokes. Like playing on that... that surface there. And I came into bat and I was actually like holding my own against Ashwin and what's his name Jeja, Jeja, Jeja (Ravindra Jadeja) (smiles) and Kohli, he like spat at me,” said Elgar in a recently released podcast.
“I said to him if you do that, I’ll f*****g*****you with this bat,” he added later spelling out a regional profanity.
Furthermore, the host of the show also asked Elgar, if Kohli was aware of the meaning of the profanity former spelt out.
“Yes, he did because de Villiers was his teammate at RCB, so he understood. And I said if you do that, I'll ... on this field, I'll knock you out. And then [he said] 'Hey F*** you, F*** you' (mimicking the Indian) but barking up the wrong tree yeah. Anyways, we are in India so you got to be a little bit cautious,” Elgar said while replying to this particular question.
