Sometimes, celebrities can lose their cool in front of the camera, especially when they are attending a press conference immediately after a match. And, when your team has lost in the manner in which India lost to England in the third Test match, then it becomes tough when questions are asked about the way the players should have approached the match.
In the post-match press conference after the conclusion of the third Test match, Virat Kohli was subjected to a question on how the Indian batsmen should have approached the England bowlers.
A reporter stated that the England bowlers were bowling full and, on the pads, and when there was an opportunity to go on to the backfoot and play, the Indian willow wielders missed out on scoring a lot of runs. And to that, Kohli remarkably kept his cool, and simply replied ‘Okay Thanks’.

Remarkable self-control by @imVkohli.
In a sense, it's a classic Twitter moment. Person with zero knowledge & zero self-awareness tries to give random gyan to actual practitioner.pic.twitter.com/P3FoLVxllD

England wallop India by an innings and 76 runs in the third Test
The England side hammered the Indian side in the third rubber by an innings and 76 runs to level the three-match Test series 1-1. The match was out of India’s grasp on the first Day itself, after the Virat Kohli-led side was bowled out for a paltry total of just 78 runs in the first innings.
England replied with a massive total of 432, with skipper Joe Root leading the way with a masterly 121. The Indian willow wielders seemed to be doing a good job with the willow in the second innings, with their scorecard reading 215/2 at the end of Day 3.
But then, the second new ball did the trick for England. On the morning of Day 4, India suffered a dramatic collapse and was bowled out for a total of 278. Ollie Robinson was the star performer with the red cherry in hand for England in the second innings. The right-arm pacer picked up a five-wicket haul, giving away 65 runs in the 26 overs that he bowled.
With the five-match Test series level at 1-1, there is everything to play for both England and India when they lock horns in the fourth Test match at the Kennington Oval that will start on 2nd September 2021.
