Virat Kohli slams journalist: The Indian captain didn’t shy away from giving a fitting reply to a journalist after losing the second Test.

During the third day of the second Test of the recently concluded India’s tour of New Zealand in Christchurch, New Zealand defeated India by seven wickets to register a 2-0 series victory.

Having lost the T20I series 5-0, the hosts did exceedingly well to whitewash India in both the ODI and Test series. Coming on the back of getting whitewashed in Australia, New Zealand needed such a result to stay active in the ongoing ICC World Test Championship.

After India dismissed New Zealand captain Kane Williamson cheaply in the first innings yesterday, captain Virat Kohli was seen giving an animated send-off to his counterpart.

Being asked about the same by a journalist during the post-match press conference, Kohli didn’t shy away from giving a fitting reply to the jounalist. Main excerpts from the conversation are mentioned below:

Journalist: Virat, what’s your reaction to your behavior on the field, swearing at Williamson when he got out, swearing at the crowd. As an Indian captain, don’t you think you should set a better example on the field?

Virat Kohli: You need to find out exactly what happened and come up with better questions. You can’t come here with half questions or half details of what happened. And also, if you want to create controversy, this is not the right place. I had spoken to the match referee. He had no issues with what happened. Thank You.
