Watch: Asking for match tickets? Virat Kohli answers best!
While addressing the pre-match press briefing before the big clash against Pakistan, Virat Kohli hilariously answered how he deals with people who asks for match tickets to him.
The Indian skipper at his best mood when one of the journalists told Kohli that his former teammate Virender Sehwag once said arranging tickets is tougher than playing cricket.
“Whenever you are leaving for a tournament of such magnitude, you should tell people in advance. Even my friends asked me, ‘shall we come (to Manchester)’. I said don’t ask me. If you want to come (for the match) please come. Otherwise everyone has good TV sets at home and should watch the match at home,” Kohli said, tying to control his laughter.
“If you start the process of organising tickets or passes, then there is no end to it. Two passes become three, three become six and it goes on. We get a set number of tickets and we have to accommodate our families if they are coming to see the match. I prefer if there are not many people asking for passes,” he added.
However, fans also made comical replies in the social media after Kohli’s true words. Here’s some of the collections.
