Virat Kohli has built a reputation for being a competitive sportsman on the field, and the third match and he displayed it during the third One Day International against Australia.
Kohli was coasting along smoothly to his 24th century, as he became the fastest in ODI cricket to reach both 7,000 runs and 24 centuries. James Faulkner, the Australian all-rounder tried to get on his nerves by sledging.
Kohli’s response was epic –
‘You’re wasting your energy. There’s no point. I’ve smashed you enough in my life. Go and bowl’.
The comment was picked by up by the stump microphones, and the video has gone viral on the net. Kohli went on to get out in an unfortunate manner, as India lost the third match of the tour consecutively. India now has to pay for pride as Australia has clean-swept the series by winning the first three matches.
Here’s the video of the incident.
