WATCH: Virat Kohli explains the street cricket terminology to the fans, video goes viral


Former Indian skipper and senior batter Virat Kohli has been the talk of the town for the last couple of weeks since the time smashed his 71st international century after a long wait of three years. Kohli smashed 122 runs off just 61 balls off 12 boundaries and six massive sixes to his name.

Recently, another video of the 33-year-old has gone viral over social media in which he is talking about the local words which are being used in Indian street cricket. Kohli explained the meaning of the words like ‘Batta’ and ‘Baby over’

The right-hander remembered the days when he used to play street cricket in Delhi during his childhood.

When we used to play with a tennis ball, there were so many bowlers doing batta – Virat Kohli

“Batta is more desi word for chucking. When we used to play with a tennis ball, there were so many bowlers doing batta. Batta is a very harsh way of chucking,” said Kohli while talking about the word ‘Batta’.

Later on, he also explained the term ‘Baby over and said:

“Everyone has said ‘Baby over’. Basically, an over of three balls is called baby over. There was a try ball as well. When a player used to get out on the first ball, he used to say it was a try ball. Yeah, I used to play baby over matches,”

Here’s the video:

The video has been uploaded on the official Twitter account of Virat Kohli in association with PUMA, the brand that is connected with him.

Notably, the senior Delhi batter has made a return to the form with some stellar performances in the recently-concluded Asia Cup 2022. He also smashed the maiden T20I century of his international career. He happened to smash this century against Afghanistan in India’s last super-4 match in the 15th edition of the continental tournament.

Now, the veteran batter will be seen again in action during the upcoming T20I assignments against Australia and South Africa respectively.
