Australian commentator and former cricketer Kerry O'Kefee invited quite a lot of flak after his remarks on Indian domestic cricket as well as cricketer Mayank Agarwal and his triple century during the Ranji Trophy. It did not stop there. He apparently had a great difficulty pronouncing names of Indian cricketers and ended up confusing Ravinder Jadeja and Cheteshwar Pujara. "Why would you name your kid Cheteshwar Jadeja," he reportedly said while on air, during India's third test match against Australia in Melbourne. These, however, are not isolated motor-mouth moments from the commentator. There's more of these gaffes, but thankfully the latest one does not involve O'Kefee.
This time around, English cricket commentator Mark Nicholas got something massively wrong. He was at the mic during the second day of the last test between Pakistan and South Africa. During a break, he got really excited to see a pair of 'kids' playing, although it was a pair of dwarfs and not kids. “Okay well, it’s important to start young. Look at this … spin it. Oh, I like that," he was heard saying, as one of them was bowling. Oops!
Twitter misses out on nothing, and they didn't miss this one either. On the other hand, In the game, South Africa swiftly won over Pakistan, making it a 3-0 in the test series.
