The India-Pakistan Final was won by Pakistan by a massive margin of 180 runs. India made 158 in reply to Pakistan’s 338/4. Captain Kohli had a bad day as scored five runs in the match.
After the match, Kohli’s press conference started on a strange note or funny note. Kohli elected to bowl first at the toss. India could’ve got the wicket of Fakhar Zaman in the fourth over. On 3, he nicked Jasprit Bumrah to keeper MS Dhoni. But Fakhar was saved by a front-foot no-ball. So, he took the chance and went on to smash 114, his maiden ODI ton.
A journalist asked the Indian skipper if he had any pleasant moment the match or not. Kohli was not sure what was going on. The interaction happened in this way:
Journalist: Captain, you won the toss and a wicket on the no-ball. Did you feel any pleasant moment in this match?
Kohli: Any what? Pleasant moment?
Journalist: Pleasant moment. You won the toss and got a wicket on the no-ball. Did you think any more pleasant in the match?
Kohli: Pleasant moment in the match? For who?
Journalist: For you.
Kohli: How can a no-ball be pleasant for me?
Journalist: Because you got the wicket.
Kohli: Was that even sensible? I mean, what’s happening.
