Remarkable self-control by @imVkohli.
In a sense, it’s a classic Twitter moment. Person with zero knowledge & zero self-awareness tries to give random gyan to actual practitioner.pic.twitter.com/P3FoLVxllD

This sharp question of the reporter got pricked
This video of Kohli is going viral on Twitter. After this the reporter questioned Kohli about playing on the backfoot. To this Kohli replied, ‘I don’t know how to answer this question? How can you play every ball on the backfoot? Unless it is according to his length.
Kohli told why India lost the match
Kohli said after the match, ‘When you get out within 80 runs (in the first innings) then it is the pressure of the scoreboard and after that the opponent team makes such a big score.’ The Indian team had scored 215 runs for two wickets on the third day, due to which it was in good condition. Kohli said, ‘But we played well yesterday to stay in the match, we tried as much as we could and also gave ourselves a chance.’
England bowlers put up the pressure
Regarding the England bowlers, he said, ‘But today the England bowlers put a lot of pressure and in the end got the result they wanted.’ Kohli said, ‘The first innings score was very bad, it can happen in this country, the whole innings collapses like a pack of cards.’ On the fourth day’s play, he said, ‘We thought the pitch was good for batting. But the disciplined bowling forced them to commit mistakes and the pressure was too much. When you are not scoring runs, it is very difficult to get over the pressure. Due to this the batting collapsed.
