India’s Former Test cricket captain Virat Kohli has shared a funny incident that took place on a flight after the team’s dismal performance on their 2014 tour of England. Kohli recalled how a passenger on the flight started giving tips to the Indian team, first approaching then-captain MS Dhoni and then turning to Kohli to ask about his bat.
The person went on to demand a hundred from Kohli in the next game. However, instead of ignoring him, Kohli invited the passenger for a conversation and asked him about his job. When the passenger said he was a manager, Kohli replied that he wanted him to be the chairman of his company in the next three years.
The interaction embarrassed the passenger, who had been relentless, and he returned to his seat after the Indian team began shouting ‘Coach-Coach’ together. Kohli shared the story on the latest episode of RCB Podcast season 2.
India’s tour of England in 2014 was a forgettable one for the team, losing the five-match Test series 1-3. The series is also remembered for Kohli’s poor performance, as he scored just 134 runs in 10 innings, leading to questions about his place in the team. However, India made a remarkable comeback in the ODI series, beating England 3-1.
