Kagiso Rabada, the fast bowler from South Africa, who is currently in India to take part in the ODI World Cup 2023, demonstrated his ability to speak fluent Hindi. During his viral interaction, the video of which is posted on Instagram by the ICC in collaboration with the members of Funcho YouTube channel, namely Dhruv and Shyam, the 28-year-old took a cheeky dig at them for faking their place of origin.
The interaction between Kagiso Rabada and Funcho members began when the fast bowler introduced himself as a player of South Africa, which led to the YouTubers shockingly claiming themselves to be from South Bombay (South Mumbai). This led to the 28-year-old asking them, “Are you guys fielders?”
When Dhruv and Shyam responded, “Why?” the fast bowler took a cheeky dig at them by saying a popular Hindi phrase, “Tum fekte acha ho!” before reminding them that they are from Virar in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region. Then, the YouTubers changed the conversation to teaching him some etiquettes about travelling in Mumbai Local Train, Kagiso Rabada responded, “Beta, Papa ko mat sikhao,” before he showed them how to get it done.
Finally, when one of the Funcho members asked the South African about where he is from, to clear his doubt, the response from the fast bowler was just as mysterious. “Nalasopara,” he responded in a hilarious manner, to the shock of the YouTubers.
