On June 1st, although Government of India has eased out the restrictions from today, yet people fear to come out of their homes without any necessary work Everything is still far from normal, outdoor activities are also at standstill and with that all the sports activities are also on hold for the time being.
In such critical times, sports players finding it very difficult to spend their time doing nothing at home. To do away with the boredom, they are now frequently interacting with their fans through various social media platforms and online interviews.
On Saturday, star Indian off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin invited Indian captain Virat Kohli on his official Instagram handle. Rekindling the memories of his stunning career, Indian skipper Virat Kohli recalled a moment from a match between India and Pakistan played at Dhaka in 2012 Asia Cup, when Rohit and Kohli collided on the field while fielding. That match was a do or die match for India and then Indian captain MS Dhoni was not happy with their fielding efforts as they gave away three extra runs.
However, later Kohli made his highest score in ODI as he smashed 183 runs in just 148 balls and India won the match comfortably.

Recalling that incident, Kohli said, “It was very funny and I remember MS wasn’t too happy about it. Pakistan, I think, had posted 329 and they had some very big partnerships in the beginning. At that time we (he and Rohit) sort of messed up, it was supposed to be single but we gave away three runs.”
“I remember Irfan (Pathan) running after the ball and throwing it back to MS and MS was like how can these two guys just collide and give away three runs. The bowler was you (Ashwin). I remember Umar Akmal played it like that, I was at deep mid-wicket and Rohit was at deep square-leg. I came in, Rohit was also going for the ball and the side of my head hit Rohit’s shoulder. Don’t think it was that serious, it was just the heat of the moment when we went for the ball and like for five minutes couldn’t figure out what had happened,” Kohli added.
