The Indian skipper, Virat Kohli gave one more reason for his fans recently during a fun and interactive Question-and-Answer session on Instagram on Saturday 29 May. He and the rest of the Indian players are currently undergoing a strict mandatory 14-day quarantine in Mumbai, before they are scheduled to fly out to England on June 02.
As soon as Kohli’s Q & A went viral, fans asked him several questions related to his food diets and a few related to COVID-19 vaccination. During the session, a fan also asked Virat Kohli regarding the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) culture and about its players. The question was about who in the team was the funniest, smartest, and very shy player. Skipper Kohli went with Yuzvendra Chahal, AB de Villiers, and Kyle Jamieson as his three choices respectively for the same.
Virat Kohli picked Chahal as the funniest RCB player because of his constant fun banters with his teammates which always end up bringing smiles on the faces of fans. Kohli has always been known for sharing a ‘Bromance’ with De Villiers as the two are very fond of each other and share mutual trust and respect. Known as Mr 360, ABD always helps Kohli with ideas, plans, and strategy during every IPL season, and hence he chose him as the smartest among all RCB players.
The newly added all-rounder, Jamieson had a decent tournament with the ball as he picked seven wickets. However, the RCB skipper though felt he is too reserved and took time to open with other players and hence Kohli labeled him as shy.
Kohli and Jamieson will be locking horns with each other in the summit clash in the ICC World Test Championship final (WTC) which is set to begin on June 18 at Southampton.
Interestingly, the lanky fast bowler had politely declined an offer from his RCB skipper to bowl with Dukes’ ball ahead of the high-profile final. The two teams had faced off in a two-match Tests series held in New Zealand in January 2020. Jamieson was playing his first Test, and he managed to dismiss Virat Kohli.
