“Kyun baar baar yeh discussion ho rahi hain, yaar. Matlab mujhe samajh mein nahin aata, bhai. (Why is this discussion happening. I can’t understand this)”

Yaar, matlab, bande ne itne run banaya hain (he has made so many runs), check his average, how many hundreds he has made, he has (vast) experience of doing that. There is a slump in every player’s life. Even in the personal life it comes.”, irriated Rohit Sharma replied to the reporter.

IND vs ENG LIVE: Rohit Sharma gets ‘annoyed & irritated’ on question on Virat Kohli’s form in PRESS CONFERENCE, backs former captain again: CHECK OUT


Rohit Sharma on Kohli: Rohit backed Kohli during his last PRESS-CONFERENCE after T20 Series as well. Once again the Indian captain backed his former skipper. 

Kohli, on Thursday, once again departed early after looking comfortable at the crease for his 16. He pushed at a delivery he could have left alone and paid the price.

Rohit was asked if Kohli needed the support of the team in this difficult phase.

“He [Kohli] has played so many matches. He is playing from so many years. He is such a great batsman so he does not need reassurance,” Rohit said at the media briefing.

“I pointed this in my last press conference, too: form goes up and down, that is part and parcel of any cricketer’s career. So, a player like him, who has played for so many years, who has made so many runs, who has won so many matches, for him, he only needs one or two good innings (to bounce back).

That is my thinking and I am sure all those who follow cricket will think similarly.”

What’s wrong with Virat Kohli – Form & Fitness both getting Questionable? Kohli was on Thursday rested, after he made himself unavailable for the five T20Is in the Caribbean starting later this month.

Kohli  last played in the IPL in May and had been ruled out since the T20I series against South Africa at home.

Chetan Sharma, chairman of the selection committee, met Rohit late on Wednesday evening and finalised the squad. Jasprit Bumrah has been also been rested besides Kohli, in keeping with the team management’s policy of workload management.

Rohit was asked during Press Conference – is he having chat with Kohli on his form?


“We do have chats about about this topic, but we should also understand and think when we talk about such things.

We have seen performance of all players goes up and down, but the quality of the player never gets worse. That we all should keep in mind. That is very important. Yaar, matlab, bande ne itne run banaya hain (he has made so many runs), check his average, how many hundreds he has made, he has (vast) experience of doing that.

ENGLAND beat India 2nd ODI: On defeat in the 2nd ODI, Rohit admitted his team batted poorly, after their 100-run loss to England in the second ODI at Lord’s on Thursday.

Though the pitch aided bowlers to a certain extent, the 247-run target was certainly chase-able, Rohit stated. “We bowled pretty well. They (England) had that partnership in the middle with Moeen (Ali) and (David) Willey. 

“Not that the target wasn’t chase-able, but we just didn’t get there. We didn’t do well enough with the bat,” Rohit said at the post-match presentation. India’s target would have been much lesser had Prasidh Krishna not dropped Willey in the deep, when the left-hander was just on one.

“If you want to win games, you have to take those catches,” Rohit accepted. Asked if India’s long tail for this game was a factor, Rohit replied: “That has been there for a long time now. We have enough of bowling options, while we also understand we have a long tail. One of the top-order guys must bat as long as possible.”
