Ben Stokes hilarious banter with Jofra Archer
During an interaction, Ben Stokes asks his teammate Jofra Archer about his favorite Hindi word. Stokes asks Archer: “What is your favorite Hindi word?” before actually saying, “Not sure you can say that.”
This comment by England all-rounder left Barbados-born pacer in stitches. “Yeah, No I can’t, I can’t,” Jofra Archer said. The pacer went on to disclose that ‘jaldi’ can be regarded as his favorite Hindi word. Translating the word in England, jaldi means ‘quickly’.
Jofra Archer took a dig at the all-rounder adding that ‘Ben Stokes’ is his favorite Hindi word also. “You can say Ben Stokes as well,” Jofra Archer told Ben Stokes. To this, the England all-rounder replied, “My name has been turned into a Hindi word”.
England and RR fast bowler Jofra Archer cited the Hindi cuss word which was made popular by India and Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Virat Kohli. The offensive word sounds quite similar to that of ‘Ben Stokes’.
