Virat Kohli Reveals Why He Walked Off The Field In The Final Overs Of The Game
Virat Kohli failed to perform with the bat but his captaincy in the fourth game was on point as he sent Suryakumar Yadav to bat at number three in the game, demoting himself at number four. In the dying moments of the game, Virat went off the field after the 15th over of the game and Rohit Sharma assumed the leadership roles until the end of the game.
Now, Virat has explained why he walked off the field. He said, “I ran for a ball and threw it and I just aggravated my leg a little bit and I didn’t want to make it into a niggle or an injury. We have another game in two days and I took the smart decision of going out.”
