"Is batting with Virat Kohli easy?" Two of his teammates answered the question and the reply was "no, it's not". The reply may look a bit baffling, but the explanation clears everything. 

R Ashwin and KL Rahul, two of Indian cricketer were present in the famous talk show "What The Duck" where they spoke about the unheard side of Indian skipper Virat. 

Both Rahul and Ashwin revealed an incident which happened while batting with Kohli. The Karnataka batsman revealed how Virat once triggered an already pumped up Chris Morris during an IPL game.

Amidst a fiery spell against Royal Challengers Bangalore, Morris was hit by Rahul for a four; Virat sledged the bowler, despite being the nonstriker. The 26-year-old was worried as it made the bowler hurl the balls with more pace. But later he got carried away and exchanged a few words too.

Adding more to the discussion, Ashwin shared the funny, yet scary, moment from India's last South Africa tour in January. The off-spinner has good batting skills and has displayed it often. But when he went to face Kagiso Rabada at Centurion the pacer gave Ashwin a tough time.

The South African youngster bowled quick bouncers and the Indian spinner admitted he had never faced someone like him. However, Ashwin did manage to hit boundaries, not one but three, and that got Virat excited. As said by Ashwin, an animated Virat started throwing words on the opposition and it was him who went under pressure considering bowler was more vibrant after that.

Here is the full conversation:
