Former England cricketer Nick Compton said that current Indian captain Virat Kohli had a thing or two to say to him about an incident from 2012 involving Anushka Sharma.

"I specially got a few words from Virat Kohli during the series. I think I bumped into his ex-girlfried at the time before the series. It was an evening with Kevin Pietersen, myself, Yuvraj Singh. All of us were there and she was there," the former England opener said on the "Edges and Sledges" podcast.

"And I just chatted to her. And I think the word got back that I was speaking to her and I don't think Virat Kohli was very happy with that. I think he had a few words to say to me every time I walked out to bat," he said.

"I think he was trying to say that it was his girlfriend, and she was saying that it was her ex-boyfriend, so it was like, who's got the story right here?"

"It was quite funny at the time, I think the players, especially in the England camp, caught hold of it. So we used it as a way to keep winding him up and try to get into his head, but you know, he's a world-class performer and he came back to score a good hundred in the last match and obviously his career has gone from strength to strength," Compton said.

"But it was quite a funny joke that we had throughout the series and something that I always smile about. But it was all in good faith," he added.

England went on to win the series 2-1, thanks to inspired performances from Alastair Cook - who scored three centuries in the four matches - and Kevin Pietersen.
