Cricket fans of India and Pakistan are still buzzing after the nail-biter in the second match of Asia Cup 2022. This game saw India clinch the edge-of-the-seat thriller. Fate has brought the two cricketing giants against each other once again and naturally the buzz around the match is insane.
A large chunk of the cricketing fraternity is looking forward to the highly anticipated match and so are the two teams. Rahul Dravid, India cricket team’s head coach was understandably bombarded with innumerable questions in the pre-match post-conference. His answer to one question has now gone viral.
When a journalist asked Dravid’s opinion on Pakistan’s bowling attack, the former India batter looked hesitant and said, “I wanted to use a word but I can’t use that word.”
“Might not be very…the word that I want to use is coming out of my mind but I can’t use it here,” a hesitant Dravid continued.
When a female journalist suggested that “exuberant would be the word?” Dravid said, “Not exuberant, no. It’s a little bit… four letters, starts with S.”
“Might not look very glamourous, but in terms of production of results, we’ve got some guys who produce the results”, concluded Dravid as the whole of the press conference was in splits.

The video of Rahul Dravid hesitant on saying the word “Sexy” has left people bemused with many calling him a gentleman for not using such words in the press conference.
India is gearing up to face Pakistan in the second match of the Super Four. Notably, the Men in Blue trumped their arch-rivals in their previous match by five wickets in what was a highly entertaining game of cricket.
The two have qualified for the Super Four along with Sri Lanka and Afghanistan. All four teams will play one game against each other in the Super Four stage following which the first and second-placed teams will head to the final for achieving Asia Cup supremacy.
