Virat Kohli hilariously explained the meaning of the "Lappa" shot in an entertaining video shared by PUMA on Twitter, and it became viral on social media.

The 'Lappa' term is commonly used in street cricket and the Delhi-born batter has also played a lot of street cricket during his childhood days. But when he was asked about the 'lappa shot', the stylish batter broke into a laugh before describing the meaning of the slang.

In the video, titled Do You Know Your Cricket Slang, Kohli can be heard saying: “Lappa is a slog over mid-wicket. A guy who doesn't probably know how to bat well knows only one shot which is lappa.”

Reminiscing his street cricket days, the former Indian skipper said: “We have played a lot like this. And there were a lot of players who knew only this shot, just a slog over mid-wicket.”

Kohli added, “It would be very frustrating for me as well as the team to see the batter getting out playing that shot. It is fine if you get out while playing proper cricketing shots.”
