Cricket: India great Ravi Shastri's toilet-themed commentary goes viral in chaotic day's play against South Africa

Former India coach Ravi Shastri had a unique way of describing his old side's collapse in the second test against South Africa at Newlands, as 23 wickets fell on the first day.

After South Africa won the toss, batted first, and were dismissed for 55, India looked to be in control at 153/4 in reply, and ahead by 98 runs.

But in a lower order blitz, South Africa claimed the final six Indian wickets, and bowled the visitors out without adding a run to the total.

However, while the collapse was in and of itself remarkable, Shastri - usually a flamboyant commentator at the best of times - put his own, toilet-themed spin on the innings, while his colleagues laughed on around him.

"Yes, 153/4 [to] 154 all out," said Shastri in commentary for SuperSport. "If someone went around the corner for a dump, and has come back, India have been bowled out for 153."

The clip of Shastri's commentary has since gone viral on social media, with thousands of users sharing the moment.

In response, South Africa reached the close of play at 62/3, trailing by 36 runs heading into day two.
