IPL 2019: Virat Kohli happy to know Jasprit Bumrah has finally learnt the art of sledging - Watch

New Delhi, Feb 28: India captain and batting mainstay, Virat Kohli, is famous for his aggressive intent on the cricket field and he never leaves a chance to sledge his opponents.

The Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) captain, however, was surprised to see his own teammate Jasprit Bumrah trying to sledge him ahead of the upcoming season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019.

In a promotional campaign in the build-up to the home-grown league, broadcaster Star Sports tweeted a video of Kohli in which he's surprised to see calm and composed Bumrah - who plays for Mumbai Indians - sledging him and vowing to get the wicket of the world's best batsman when the two sides face each other in the league.

Impressed with Bumrah's challenge, Kohli said he's happy to see that the youngster has finally learnt the art of sledging from him.

"Cheeku Bhaiya? Apne captain ko sledge karega (You will sledge your captain)?" Kohli says in the video. The 30-year-old then smiles and fills up his plate with salad, and says: "Chal, aakhir seekh hi gaya tu (Nice, you have finally learned the art of sledging)."

The RCB skipper, who is nicknamed 'Cheeku' (rabbit), while eating carrot warned the 25-year-old speedster to not expect any favours from him.
