India is currently locking horns against New Zealand in the three-match ODI series. While the Men in Blue have already sealed the series after winning the first two matches of the series, they will square off in the third and final match on Tuesday (January 24).
Ahead of the third and final ODI, Indian head coach Rahul Dravid attended the pre-match press conference. During the press conference, the coach was asked about Virat Kohli’s future in the Indian team in the shortest format of the game. The former Indian captain was quick to interrupt the journalist who asked about Virat’s future and gave a fitting reply in return.
“Till last year, Virat’s position in the T20 team was questioned,” the journalist asked. At this very moment the Indian head coach came up with a brilliant response. “Not by us. Not at all, never by us!,” Dravid replied leaving everyone in splits.
