WATCH- “Virat Kohli will sledge you even if you bowl a good delivery,” says Al-Amin Hossain

Rubel Hossain also mentioned Kohli cussing him during their U19 days.

Virat Kohli sledged a lot says Al-Amin HossainVirat Kohli is one of the most passionate batsmen anyone will ever see on a cricket field. During his earlier days, his passion was not limited only to physical actions, but he was verbal as well. Many of the players who played with him in his younger days can attest to that fact.

Al-Amin Hossain of Bangladesh is one such player and during a Facebook Live session with Bangladesh-based Cricfrenzy, Al-Amin said that Kohli would sledge you even if you bowled a good ball.

Virat Kohli will sledge you every time you bowl a dot ball to him. He uses slang words, which I cannot say in front of an audience. He tries to create pressure on the bowler, mentally disturb him,” Hossain said.

I have bowled to Chris Gayle, Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, the other great batsmen in the world. None of them are like this. They defend when you bowl a good ball, they don’t say anything. Kohli is not like that, he will sledge you in return,” he added.

One of Kohli’s clips from the 2011 World Cup is famous for him giving it back to Bangladesh’s Rubel Hossain during the opening match of the tournament in Dhaka, where Kohli made his World cup debut and scored a century.

Rubel had recalled Kohli using cuss words a lot during their U19 days and mentioned the same in a FB Live session with Tamim Iqbal. “He used to do a lot of sledging then. Maybe he does it a little less for the national team. We all know how abusive he was in the U-19 days,” he had said.
