Months after Rahul Dravid created quite a stir on social media for being ‘Indiranagar ka Gunda’, the former cricketer became the talk of the town after he was spotted teaching Kannada to the British High Commissioner to India, Alex Ellis amid ongoing India vs England Test series.

“Cricket expressions in Indian languages part 2. Today, we’re down south in Bengaluru. What better teacher than ‘The Coach’ #RahulDravid, who taught me this in #Kannada ಕನ್ನಡ,” tweeted the diplomat while sharing the clip where Team India head coach Dravid is seen teaching Ellis.

“England and India are playing each other and I am on the hunt for the best Indian cricket expressions. We have come to Bangalore and we have come to one of the greatest players to have played the game and he’s going to teach me and you one phrase in the language of the state – Kannada,” Ellis can be heard saying in the clip.

Responding to Ellis, Dravid taught the diplomat “Bega Odi” in Kannada that translates to “one run”.
