Indian skipper across all format, Virat Kohli is the most recent guest in Mayank Agarwal’s talk show, 'Open nets with Mayank' that has witnessed the likes of Sourav Ganguly, Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma and many more being quizzed by the batsman.

The Indian cricket body on wednesday took to twitter to share a teaser of an upcoming episode that will feature Virat Kohli. In the teaser, Mayank Agarwal can be heard complementing Virat Kohli for his glasses and the Indian captain responds by saying he is going "retro".

"Look who's gone retro. Watch out for this episode of #OpenNetsWithMayank featuring #KingKohli," The BCCI captioned the video on Twitter.


During his chat with BCCI president and former opener Sourav Ganguly, Mayank Agarwal asked the former India captain about his partnership with batting icon Sachin Tendulkar.

In response, Sourav Ganguly let out that Tendulkar never used to take strike and always forced him to face the first ball of the innings.

Other than Indian cricketers, Mayank Agarwal also hosted his Indian Premier League (IPL) teammate Chris Gayle and the West Indies opener opened up about an IPL game between the Kings XI Punjab and the SunRisers Hyderabad.

In that match, Gayle went after Rashid Khan and smashed the leg-spinner for four maximums in an over.

Chris Gayle, during the chat with Mayank, revealed that he doesn't like a spinner coming in and start staring at him.

The 13th edition of the T20 league was put back indefinitely in April but with the International Cricket Council postponing the T20 World Cup by a year, the BCCI are trying to use the September-November window to host the IPL this year.
