After losing the closely-fought three-match T20I series 2-1 to India, New Zealand batsman Ross Taylor has bid adieu to India in his own inimitable style with a mega revelation. Taylor, in his new Instagram post, has unveiled the names of people who helped him with Hindi to tackle the Twitter banter with former India opener Virender Sehwag.
The people behind Taylor's witty and humorous Hindi tweets were his teammate Ish Sodhi and staff member Dev.
Taylor posted an image on his Instagram to bid India goodbye, but with yet another message for Sehwag.

The Twitter wordplay between the two cricketers started when Sehwag used Taylors' name as its phonetic resemblance 'tailor', which translates to 'darji' in Urdu.
"Well played @RossLTaylor Darji ji. Great effort after handling the pressure of Diwali orders .#indvsnz," Sehwag wrote.
To everyone's surprise, Taylor replied to Sehwag's 'Darji' comment in perfect Hindi, leaving everyone completely stumped, including the former opener.
"Thanks @virendersehwag bhai agli Baar Apna order time pe Bhej dena so Mai Apko agli Diwali ke pehle deliver kardunga ..happy Diwali," Taylor quipped.
The wordplay further continued with tweets coming from both the sides and ended after the India-New Zealand T20I series.
