Jonty Rhodes surprised Twitterati with an unexpected reply, or maybe the reply was expected but no one would have it will come in such a way. The former South African cricketer was asked if he has learned any Hindi yet by a Twitter follower.
Rhodes shared a picture from his stay in India. The former Mumbai Indians fielding coach is currently in Rajasthan on a trip. He posted the picture in which he can be seen having beverage sitting beside a bonfire.
Rhodes' caption read, " Guaranteed to warm up with fire n Old Monk; Vivanta by Taj Sawai Madhopur Lodge."

The reply from Jonty was as expected 'No' and he did respond with the same reply but in Hindi which left the followers stunned. It was a bit sarcastic reply by the South African.
