Winning the second T20I New Zealand equalised the series 1-1 with the final match to be played in the Southern part of India.
On the day of Diwali Sehwag called Taylor ‘Darji’
Earlier in the series, Sehwag celebrated Diwali with a light banter. He reckoned Taylor as ‘Darji’ for handling the pressure during New Zealand’s victory in the first ODI. Now, Taylor’s move left cricket fans shocked as they never imagined an international cricketer would pose for a photograph in front of a tailor’s shop. In the first ODI, Taylor scored 95 off 100 which ensured that New Zealand won the match by six wickets.
In Rajkot, the Kiwis defeated India by 40 runs, thanks to Colin Munro‘s second T20I hundred in this calendar year.

Cricket community is well acquainted with Sehwag’s casual banter. He is famous for his quirky posts on the social network sites and on several occasions, he has trolled other cricketers with funny comments and observations.
But, Taylor’s witty post on social media sites is something new that caught cricket fans by surprise. On the day of Diwali, the duo has a funny conversation on Twitter.
Taylor is well versed with Hindi
Taylor is well versed in Hindi and this is not the only time that he has responded to an Indian player in the local language, either on the field or off the field. During the second Test in Kolkata in October 2016, Taylor appealed for a catch but umpire Rod Tucker did not give it out. Taylor gave a Hindi cuss word that soon went viral.
