Indian actor lashes out at Kohli, calls him Worst Behaved Player

By Himanshu Sharma

Virat Kohli’s on the field behaviour has garnered a lot of attention at Perth Test. Some approve of Kohli’s aggression, saying it’s his hunger to win and compete while others defend the behaviour of India captain because he is one of the finest cricketers in the world at the moment.

Then, there is the other lot who disapprove of Kohli’s on-field antics. Naseeruddin Shah, a veteran actor, is one of them. The actor took to Facebook on Monday to slam Kohli for his conduct.

Dual of words with Australia captain Tim Paine

The tensions between the two sides have flared with the passage of play at Perth. Kohli and Paine have exchanged words whenever they had a chance of going at each other.

At one instance, umpire Chris Gaffaney had to step in to remind the captains to stop. “That’s enough, that’s enough. Come on, play the game. You guys are the captains,” said Gaffney told the two captains.

Former Aussie Cricketers on Kohli’s antics

Former Australian cricketers also voiced their opinion on Kohli’s conduct in the last couple of days. Mike Hussey said, “Virat Kohli is out of control and I don’t like his attitude at the moment.” Allan Border also did not like what he saw. He said, “I don’t think I’ve ever seen any captain carry on like the way Virat Kohli is.

INDIA staring at defeat

Chasing 287, India closed Day 4 at 112/5 with Vihari and Pant hanging in there. India lost early wickets in the chase. The visitors still require 175 to win with five remaining. Nathan Lyon was once again the wrecker-in-chief for Australia, sending back Indian captain Kohli and Vijay who was looking good at his brief stay at the crease.
