In a 90-second video posted by the official Twitter handle of International Cricket Council (ICC), the Indian opener was questioned about his teammates, to which he replied quite candidly.

Some of the questions asked about the players were:

Touted as one of the favourites, India faced a crushing six-wicket defeat in their first warm-up game against New Zealand on May 25. The two-time champion will now take on Bangladesh in the second practice match before beginning their World Cup campaign against South Africa on June 5.
