In the recently concluded first Test match between India and West Indies in Dominica, India’s triumph was not only marked by Yashasvi Jaiswal’s remarkable debut innings and Ravichandran Ashwin’s exceptional 12-wicket haul but also by the hilarious banter captured on the stump mic.

As the players engaged in on-field conversations, it was Ishan Kishan who stole the show with his witty remarks.

Throughout the match, Kishan’s voice resonated through the stump mic as he playfully interacted with his teammates. On the opening day, he could be heard offering suggestions to Virat Kohli, providing tips to Rohit Sharma, and even giving a humorous warning to Shubman Gill about the captain’s potential reaction.

However, it was on the final day of the game that Kishan’s words targeted vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane, leaving fans in splits. In a lighthearted exchange, Kishan teased Rahane by remarking “Aap se zyada ball khel gaya yeh, Ajju bhai,” highlighting the number of balls played by West Indies’ batsman Jomel Warrican and playfully comparing it to Rahane’s own tally.

Displaying an unusual stance and playing unorthodox shots, the West Indies tailender scored a quickfire 18 runs off as many balls before falling to Ravichandran Ashwin.

As the series progresses, fans will undoubtedly keep their ears peeled for more such amusing moments, eagerly awaiting the next installment of on-field banter that adds flavor to the intense competition.
