Mumbai Indians bowler Tim Southee had a very embarrassing moment on the team bus when he had to halt the same due to nature’s call. The player immediately rushed to the washroom as the bus stopped and all the other players in the bus pound the funny side of the situation.
Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh took the video of the incident and shared it on twitter as all the other players, including Mumbai skipper Rohit Sharma, were seen laughing in the video.
The New Zealand vice-captain walked out of the bus without speaking to anybody which left Harbhajan wondering. It was only when the spinner asked the other players if they had any clue about the weird situation that he got an answer. The teammates informed Harbhajan about Southee’s upset stomach and even joked about the same.
After a few minutes, Southee returned from the washroom and looked much relieved. Harbhajan then asked the pacer if he wants to comment something on the situation to which Southee replied “Not bad toilets in there”
Southee is not the only one who have faced such a situation, but there are many players who have been a victim of nature’s call in the past. During the recently concluded Border-Gavaskar trophy in India, Australian opening batsman Matt Renshaw had to retire in the middle of his innings due to a similar emergency. No matter how important the situation of the match is these circumstances are just unavoidable.
South African batsman AB de Villiers has also faced a situation similar to that of Renshaw’s while batting against the West Indies at Warner Park. The batsman scored a brilliant hundred in that innings as no bowler looked threatening enough to stop him from doing that. But the cricketer did answer the nature’s call after reaching his century in style.
