Captain Virat Kohli once again had a fiery exchange with a journalist after India’s 7-wicket defeat against New Zealand in the second Test in Christchurch on Monday.
A journalist asked Kohli about his on-field antics at the post-match press conference but his questions didn’t go down too well with the 31-year-old star cricketer.

Kohli was fired up on Day 2 of the Test match, giving angry send-offs to New Zealand batsmen and on one occasion, was even caught on camera swearing at the crowd. The videos of the incident went viral on social media.
In the video, Kohli could be seen putting his finger on his lips in a gesture to silence the crowd and saying something that social media users said included an expletive. There is yet to be any official word on the incident.
He was asked about the same incident by the journalist during the presser after the game but Kohli hit back by saying that he shouldn’t be asking questions without knowing the exact details of the incidents which took place on the field during the match.
Journalist: Virat, what’s your reaction to your behaviour on the field, swearing at Williamson when he got out, swearing at the crowd. As an Indian captain, don’t you think you should set a better example on the field?
