Indian captain Virat Kohli has been on the centre-stage of quite a few controversies over the last few years. Even in India’s ongoing four-match series against Australia, which is currently level at 1-1, the 30-year-old has got himself tangled into some brawls. During the second encounter at the new Perth Stadium, which the hosts won by 146 runs, Kohli tried to ruffle Tim Paine’s feathers.
The Delhi-born cricketer was constantly in the ears of Paine and even the on-field umpires had to intervene in order to ensure that the proceedings don’t turn ugly. Later, former cricketers like Michael Hussey and Sanjay Manjrekar lashed out the Indian skipper. Even 68-year-old Naseeruddin Shah from the Indian film industry termed him as the world’s worst-behaved cricketer.
More brickbats for Virat
Nevertheless, he has got support from the likes of Allan Border, Darren Lehmann and Sunil Shetty, who came out in support of Virat, saying that cricket needs characters like him. In the meantime, the Australian media has left no stone unturned in ridiculing Virat. Recently, the Twitter handle of Dennis Tareen, an Australian journalist, released a video, taking a dig at Kohli.
In the clip, it was seen that a bowler was all set to bowl and he saw that the non-striker was away from the crease. The bowler ‘Mankaded’ him i.e., he took the bails off when the non-striker was out of his crease. The umpire immediately gave the decision in favour of the fielding side. The batsman was utterly disgusted and he broke free to vent his frustration out.
He smashed his bat repeatedly with all his might on the ground and eventually broke it. Thereafter, he ran back to the hut dejected. The Aussie journalist captioned the video and wrote, “Here’s Virat showing everyone how to behave when things don’t go your way on the field,”
