Indian skipper Virat Kohli was left in splits after a reporter allegedly from Pakistan asked a hilarious question during a post match press conference on June 18. Soon, after India lost to arch-rivals Pakistan by 180-run in the final match of the ICC Champions Trophy tournament at the Oval in London, Virat Kohli arrived in the press area to address the press conference.
Just at the start of the press meet, one reporter asked Virat Kohli a question which left him and everyone present at the conference completely confused.
Here’s what all happened:
Reporter: Winning the toss and wicket off the no ball, did you feel any pleasant moment in this match?
Virat Kohli: Any what?
Reporter: Pleasant moment. You won the toss and got a wicket on the no ball. Did you have any other pleasant moments in this match?
Virat Kohli: For who?
Reporter: For You!
Virat Kohli: How can no ball be pleasant for me?
Reporter: Because you got the wicket
Virat Kohli: Was that even sensible? I don’t know what is happening?

Meanwhile, disappointed with team’s poor show skipper Virat Kohli prasied Pakistani squad for their brilliant all-round performance in the Champions Trophy final. Kohli said Pakistani players were more intense and passionate in the final which also helped them outplay the India team in every department of the game.
“It was disappointing. Congos to Pakistan. The way they turned things around, it was amazing. They can upset anyone on their day,” Virat Kohli said after the match.
“I have a smile on my face because I am very proud of the boys. Credit to Pakistan. They outplayed us. They were more intense and more passionate,” Indian skipper added.
This was the first ever Champions Trophy title for Pakistan. The south Asian nation claimed their third ICC tournament, having earlier won the 50-over World Cup in 1992 and the World Twenty20 in 2009.
