India might have won the T20I series against England, but there were some question marks raised about Virat Kohli’s batting position in the aftermath of the series.

Kohli, usually a number three for India in limited overs cricket, opened the innings in all three matches. He didn’t have much success though, scoring just 52 runs at an average of 17.33.

At the press conference after the match, the Indian skipper was questioned about the same to which he had an interesting response.

“In the IPL, I had opened the batting and scored four hundreds. That time, no one said anything. Now when the runs aren’t flowing, it has become a problem,” said Kohli.

“Focus on others as well, there are 10 more players in the team. If I do everything, what will the other players do? Give others a chance.

“It’s a great series win for us, I’m more happy about that. I’m not worried about my opening slot at all. If I had made 70 runs in two matches, would you have asked this question? No, right? So, be happy for the team as it is a good series win.”
