Mohammed Shami and Nicholas Pooran who play for the Kings XI Punjab in the Indian Premier League (IPL) were involved in a funny Hindi lesson video. The video was shared by Kings XI Punjab’s official Twitter handle in which fast-bowler Mohammad Shami can be seen teaching Hindi to Nicholas Pooran. In the video, Mohammed Shami can be heard saying, “Aap kahan jaa rahe ho” which Nicholas Pooran tries to repeat and eventually gets it right in the end. Kings XI Punjab’s official Twitter handle in the caption of the tweet wrote, “Hindi lessons ft. Nicky Praa!”.
