Virat Kohli played one of the best knocks of his career in the first Test of India vs Australia 2014-15 series. It was a knock of courage and class. But, apart from Murali Vijay, he didn’t get support from any other batsman. The likes of Shikhar Dhawan, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Rohit Sharma and Wriddhiman Saha, all threw their wickets away very cheaply.
Our sources tell us that Virat Kohli called an emergency meeting after the match in which he spoke very rudely with all these above mentioned batsmen. This meeting was attended by all the members of the squad, including the support staff.
Virat Kohli was really annoyed with the manner in which the batting line-up tumbled after Murali Vijay’s wicket. Throughout the meeting, Virat Kohli kept asking one question to Wriddhiman Saha– WHY THE HELL DID YOU PLAY THAT SHOT?
Wriddhiman Saha, who is very about his future after playing that horrible shot, tried to explain his side of the story but Virat Kohli rubbished it by saying “THIS NOT THE F***ING IPL”.
India’s Team Director Ravi Shastri, who was also present in the meeting, didn’t like the idea of Virat Kohli abusing his most loved tournament IPL and requested Virat Kohli to keep the IPL out of it. Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who is already in a lot of mess due to his involvement with Chennai Super Kings also agreed with Shastri and said, “Let’s keep IPL out of this, or I will have to bring in Srini Mama.”
After this Virat Kohli became calm, and shifted his focus from Saha to Rohit Sharma and Shikha Dhawan.
“When will you start taking the responsibility, Shikhar and Rohit? Scoring double hundreds and twirling mustache will not cement your place in the side. I hope Dhoni bhai drops you two for the second match,” Virat Kohli said.
Our sources tell us that both Rohit and Shikhar kept quite, but Suresh Raina, who is also in the squad, tried to score brownie points by saying. “Experienced players need to show responsibility.”
MS Dhoni and Ravi Shastri both applauded Suresh Raina’s statement, hinting towards a probable change in the second Test.
A few minutes later, Anushka Sharma came in and shouted at Virat Kohli for not taking her to shopping. Kohli, who wanted to speak more, immediately called off the meeting and left the room.
Our “unreliable” sources tell us that Rohit Sharma Ajinkya Rahane and Karn Sharma are very worried now, as Dhoni will start his “CSK DRAMA” in the second match.
