India vs Australia 4th Test Sydney: The victorious Indian cricket team danced like there is no tomorrow at the SCG after India beat Australia 2-1 to clinch the four-match Test series for the first time in 71 years in the country. It seems after bagging the Man of the Match and Series it was Cheteshwar Pujara who initiated the strange dance moves in front of the SCG crowd. But, if you have to go by Kohli, it was wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant who inspired Pujara to break into a dance after India skipper Virat Kohli gave his approval. It may have not the most well-rehearsed and cool moves, but the moves got everyone talking.
Here is Kohli explaining how it started:
At the press conference, Team India captain Virat Kohli was asked to explain the dance that followed India’s victory. The Indian captain explained, “You’ll have to ask Rishabh Pant that, he came up with that and we just went along. I don’t know what he was trying to do to be honest. It just felt good, it was very easy but Pujara could not even do that. You can see how simple he is.”
He then said that, in fact, the dance was an inspired by Pujara’s walking style. He said, “That was the Pujara dance because when he walks he does not move his hands, it’s more of an extension of his walk. Rishabh came up and we just joined in.”
Hence, during the dance, you can see Pant pushing Pujara to get started while Pujara is, as usual, feeling shy.
