New Delhi: Commentary is one of the toughest jobs when it comes to keeping nerves under control and not say anything controversial despite being in favour of a particular team or player.
It was a similar case during the 3rd ODI between India and New Zealand in Mohali when Ravi Shastri, Scott Styris and Sunil Gavaskar were commentating on the match.
Former Kiwi all-rounder Scott Styris made a strong statement seeing part-time spinner Kedar Jadhav being introduced by MS Dhoni into the attack.
"I will walk out of the commentary box, and take the first flight to New Zealand if Jadhav takes a wicket today," said a bold Styris.
Jhadav soon dismissed New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson LBW and Styris regretted the statement he made.

Styris, while departing, said it was a pleasure, dropped the mic and walked out of the commentary box.
Jhadav then went on to pick up three wickets for 29 runs and an Indian fan asked the New Zealand legend where he was on twitter.

Fan: Where is @scottbstyris now?
The Scott Styris didn't last for long in the commentary box, it was certainly a cameo he would always remember.
