WATCH: ‘If you want controversy tell me before’ – Virat Kohli lashes out at journalist suggesting Rohit Sharma needs to be dropped


India’s humbling in the hands of Pakistan hasn’t gone down well on social media for sure, and with the atmosphere still pretty gloom after the loss, Virat Kohli walked into the post-match press conference to be met with a very tricky question from a journalist.

Virat Kohli listened patiently as the journalist talked of team combinations and Ishan Kishan, but gaped in awe as the journalist asked if India were better off playing Ishan Kishan instead of Rohit Sharma.

“That’s a brave question,” Kohli said. “I played the team that I think would work best today. You tell me, Sir. Will you drop Rohit Sharma from T20 internationals? Rohit Sharma? You remember what he did for us the alst time we played, don’t you?”

Laughing at the question and shaking his head in disbelief, Kohli continued – “Unbelieveable. If you want controversy, tell me before, I’ll answer accordingly,” Kohli retorted.



Pakistan created hsitory in the night, beating India by 10 wickets, their first win over the arch-rivals in an ICC World Cup. Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan put on an unbeaten opening stand to take Pakistan through after early wickets by Shaheen Shah Afridi dented India.
