I’ve still got it, I guess: Virat Kohli

The former Indian captain has been under scrutiny after the rumours of BCCI sidelining him for the upcoming T20 World Cup 2024.

But the 35-year-old replied in some great fashion, notching up a match-winning knock for Royal Challengers Bengaluru against Punjab Kings. He addressed his critics in a jovial way and asserted that he has “still got it”.

“I know my name is now attached to just promoting the game in different parts of the world when it comes to T20 cricket. I’ve still got it, I guess," Kohli had said after the match.
