Watch Video: Rahul irritated by question on Kohli, says ‘main bahar baith jau?’ | Cricket

India’s vice-captain KL Rahul has scored his first fifty of any form since returning to the side after a long injury break in India’s final 2022 Asian Cup Super 4 match against Afghanistan, but it was completely overshadowed by Virat Kohli’s record breaking girl T20I hundred. While regular captain Rohit Sharma decided to rest, KL Rahul and Virat Kohli walked out to open the battle for India and the duo formed the tournament’s highest opening partnership (119) in this edition, setting the stage for the India’s second biggest T20I win (in terms of margin of runs) with 101 runs. After the match, when KL Rahul came for the press conference, he was expected to get multiple questions about Virat Kohli. And he did. But one particular question annoyed KL Rahul.

A reporter asked the India opener, who led against Afghanistan in the absence of Rohit, whether Kohli can be tried as an opener even in the upcoming tournaments, including the world, as he has a great top-end in this format. .

The question did not go down well with KL Rahul, who came up with a rude answer before gathering and praising Kohli’s heartfelt words.

Here’s how the conversation between KL Rahul and the reporter took place during the press conference

News reporter: Humne IPL mein bhi dekha hai ki open karte hue 5 shatak but chuke hai. Aur aj bhi open karte hue hi unka shatak aya. kya as vice captain monkey team management se jab taille karenge toh kya ye socha jeyaga looking ahead in Australia, South Africa series and also in World Cup, unko open karaya jay kyuki unhone pichle saal bhi kaha tha ki wo open karna chahte hai. (We’ve seen in the IPL that Virat Kohli batted five hundred on the opening trick. (He scored another century on the opening today, so as a vice-captain you want to tell team management that Kohli can be tried as an opener in the series Australia and South Africa and also in the World Cup?)

KL Rahul:Toh kya main khud baith jau phir? kamal hai. (Are you suggesting I sit down then? Great)

Virat scoring runs is a huge bonus. The way he batted today will clearly… I know he’s very pleased with his shot. As he has worked on his game, it has worked for him today. It’s also great for the team that before a World Cup every key player gets such innings under their belt. If you have 2-3 such turns, your confidence is high. It gives us the chance to get the best out of ourselves at the World Cup.”

Rahul, who scored 62 from 41 balls, more or less confirmed that Kohli will return to his original batting position of number 3 in the next home series against Australia, South Africa and also in the T20 World Cup when Rohit Sharma gives up back.

“Aap jante hai Virat Kohli ko. Sabne dekha hai itne salo se unko. (You all know Virat and have seen what he can do) It’s not like he will only score hundreds on opening. Agar No.3 pe bhi ayenge toh 6- 7 hundred waha bhi bana sakte hai. It’s all about playing different roles in the team. He played his part beautifully. The next series we play, his role will be different. He will do his best, so there is no doubt about it,” Rahul said of the former India captain who took the highest individual T20I score for the country on Thursday with a blistering 122* on just 61 balls to lead India to a 101-run victory against Afghanistan.
