Kohli, the Skipper of India grabbed all the hearts out in the press conference after giving a witty reply to one of the Journalists who asked about his troublesome batting at the opening slot in the concluded T20I series.
The question came up during the post-match press conference in Bengaluru on Wednesday, when a reporter asked Kohli about his failure as an opener.
Kohli’s response evoked laughter.
“Maine IPL mein batting ki thi as an opener. Char hundred banaye the. Tab kisi ne kuch nahi bola. Ab match mein run nahi banaye to problem ho gayi? Us time pe log bolo rahe the, wah kitni behtarrin inning start ki hai, ab 2 innings mein ye? Sir dusro pe bhi focus kariye team mein dus aur log hai. Mein sabkuch kar lunga to baki kya karenge. Dusro ko bhi chance dijiye. Ye hamare liye ek behtarin series rahi hai to mein iske liye zyada khush hoon. Mein apne opening performance ke bare me zara bhi chintit nahi hoon. Agar mein 70 run bana deta do match mein to aap mere se yeh sawal karte? Nahi na? To team ke liye khush rahie, achchi series jeet rahi hai. enjoy kariye!
(I batted as an opener in the IPL and scored four centuries. No one said anything then. Now I didn’t score so it has become a problem. Then during the IPL last year people said what a revelation my opening slot was. Sir, focus on the others in the team also. There are 10 other people in the team. If I do everything, what will the others do? Give the others a chance. It’s a great series win for us. I am happy about that and am not worried about my opening slot at all. Had I scored 70 runs in two matches, you wouldn’t have asked me this question, no? Be happy for the team, it’s a good series win. Enjoy it.)” he said.
