The Sri Lankan cricket team which was regarded as one of the best sub-continent teams is now dealing with a tough time. It faced a humiliating defeat in the Asia Cup. The hosts were restricted to just 50 runs by India and Men In Blue recorded a win by a big margin of 10 wickets.
In the ongoing World Cup as well, the Sri Lankan team is dealing with a tough time. Sri Lanka is in a race for the semis stage and it needs to win a few games and depend on other teams for entry. Sri Lanka's chances became tough when they were defeated by India with a massive margin of 302 runs.
In the middle of this, Sri Lankan skipper Kusal Mendis made Virat Kohli fans with his bizarre response. Virat Kohli scoring 49th century in the ODI format is one of the much-talked-about topics in the sports arena.
A journalist asked Kusal Mendis about Virat Kohli's 49th century and what would be his reaction on this. The Sri Lankan cricket captain surprised one and all with his response.
"Virat Kohli completed his 49th ODI hundred. Would you like to congratulate him?," the Skipper was asked."Why would I congratulate him?" Kusal Mendis replied the journalist leaving everyone in splits.
What Kusal Mendis said did not go well will Virat Kohli fans who are fuming at him. They ask how the skipper can give such a response as if he doesn't care. They are saying what Virat achieved is not a small thing and there is no need for such a bizarre response.
While Virat Kohli fans are fuming at the Sri Lankan team skipper, a section of netizens say that what Kusal Mendis is right and a wrong question was shot at him. They ask why the journalist asked the question instead of asking about the Sri Lanka team.
