India’s captain Virat Kohli wasn’t amused with a reporter who questioned his lack of form at the top of the order in the recently concluded T20I series against England. Kohli, for the first time in his international career, opened the innings in T20I cricket and failed to get going in all three matches of the series. His highest score in the 3-match series was 19 in the second match in Nagpur.
In the third and final match of the series in Bangalore, fans were hoping that Kohli would put a good show at his ‘IPL home ground’, but, unfortunately, Virat Kohli got run-out and could manage to score just 2 runs.
In the post-match press conference, a journalist asked Virat Kohli about his lack of form at the top of the order and the Indian captain didn’t like it even one bit. Kohli was quick to respond and reminded the journalist that he scored 4 hundreds batting at same spot for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the last season of the Indian Premier League (IPL).
“I opened the innings in IPL and scored 4 hundreds and nobody spoke a word. Now, I have failed in a couple of matches, it has suddenly become a problem,” Virat Kohli said.
“That time people were saying oh! such a revolution he has opened the innings. And now things have suddenly changed after 2 innings,” Indian captain added.
Kohli also advised the journalist to focus on other cricketers in the team as well. Watch Virat Kohli’s reply here:
