England batsman Oli Pope has revealed this about Virat Kohli.
India and England (India vs England) recently ended the ODI series, in which the team India won the game 2–1. In the captaincy of Virat Kohli, India had named the T20 series 3-2 and the Test series 3-1 before the ODI series. But now the England batsman Ollie Pope has made a shocking disclosure about the series. He has alleged that Virat Kohli threatened him during the first Test played in Chennai. We all know that Virat Kohli has been making a lot of headlines on the ground for his gossipy nature, but according to Pope, the Indian captain publicly tried to intimidate him for the next three matches of the Test series.
Actually, the sentence which the Pope is referring to is from the first test of the series played at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. In this test, England’s team was reduced to 178 runs in 46.3 overs in the second innings, but still they did not have much trouble in winning the match by 227 runs. According to Pope, during this match, Indian captain Virat Kohli threatened him that you will play on the flat pitch for the last time.
Virat came to me and…
Pope said, when England were batting in the second innings, there was a lot of turn on the pitch. I was then standing at the non-striker end. That’s when Virat Kohli came to me and said, this is the last time you will bat on a flat pitch. After this moment I understood that now the conditions are going to be very difficult for batting in the rest of the series. As a result, England could not score more than 205 runs in any of the six innings of the next three tests.
Even the result of the third test played in Ahmedabad had come in India’s favor in less than two days. At the same time, the fourth test was also finished within three days. Pope himself failed in this series and was able to score only 153 runs at an average of 19.12. The 23-year-old Pope has played 17 Test matches so far in his career.
