Virat Kohli is currently going through the worst phase of his career. His form had declined during the 2014 England tour, but the legendary batsman regained the momentum in no time, but at present Kohli’s bat is not getting runs. Because of this, some questions related to him are often asked by the players and coaches in the press conferences. Captain Rohit Sharma has to face this question the most. This time, Rohit stopped the journalist in the middle of the question. Let us know what happened between Rohit and the journalist after the crushing defeat in the second ODI against England.
Reporter – There is a lot of discussion about Virat Kohli
Before the journalist could finish his question, Rohit interrupted him.
Rohit said – why is it happening man? I don’t understand brother. Well ask?
The journalist later completed his question by asking whether a player of Kohli’s caliber needs reassurance from his coach, captain and rest of the staff at this stage or is it better to leave him alone.
Responding to this, Rohit Sharma said, ‘He has played so many matches for so many years. He has been such a great batsman so he doesn’t need assurance. I think I also said in the last press conference that the form can go up and down. That is part of the game, it happens in the career of all players. So a player who has won so many matches needs only 1 or 2 innings. I believe and I am sure others feel the same way.’
In Lord’s ODI also, Kohli started the innings in a brilliant manner, but he could not score big. During the innings of just 16 runs, Kohli’s bat got three fours. He was dismissed by David Willey on the outside ball and showed the way to the pavilion.
