Watch: Virat Kohli's witty response stuns journalist who questioned his form as opener

Riding on Yuzvendra Chahal's stunning performance with the ball as he took 6 wickets, India beat England in the third and the final T20 match at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium here on Wednesday to grab the series by 2-1.

Even after winning the match with a huge margin of 75 runs, skipper Virat Kohli had to face a tough question in the post-match press conference.

A journalist asked Kohli about his failure as the opening batsman and got a befitting reply from the captain, who said, "Maine IPL mein batting ki thi as an opener. Char hundred banaye the. Tab kisi ne kuch nahi bola. Ab match mein run nahi banaye to problem ho gayi." (No one said anything when I scored four centuries as an opener in the Indian Premier League and now my batting position is an issue as I have not scored runs.)

"That time people were saying 'oh! such a revelation.' Now I don't score in two innings. Focus on others as well. There are 10 other players in the team. If I do everything so what will the others do," he added.

Kohli, who is often referred as the run-machine of India, said that he is not worried about his batting slot.

"I am more happy about that (series) and not worried about my opening slot. If I had made 70 runs in two matches, would you have asked me this question. No, right? So just enjoy the series. It is a nice win for us," he said.

At opening position, Kohli scored only 52 runs in the three matches against England in the T20 series.
