Matt Renshaw laughs off Virat Kohli’s sledges in the Bengaluru Test

On Day 2 of the ongoing Test match between India and Australia, Indian captain Virat Kohli got involved in many on-field conversations with the Australian batsmen as sledging finally made its mark in the series.

After the end of the day’s play, the Aussies opener Matt Renshaw revealed one of the conversations he had with Kohli.

The India skipper tried to unnerve Renshaw by reminding him of the “toilet break” he took in the Pune Test. But, the Queenslander just laughed and moved on to score patient 60 runs.

Here’s what Matt Renshaw said in the press conference on Day 2:

“I was just trying to enjoy it and laugh at what (Kohli) was saying because some of it was quite funny.”

“He was just reminding me to run off and go to the toilet again which happened in Pune, so it was quite funny.”

“There was a bit of talk but I think that’s because just (Smith and Kohli) are trying to unnerve each other and try and get under the skin.”

“It’s about embracing different conditions and challenges that we get.

“It was all good fun and a good contest out there.

“It was really loud out there when (Kohli) was doing that (pumping up the crowd) but it’s something I’m probably not used to.”
