    That's exactly what he wants to pump him up. Negative comments and actions always helped him step up in career so far.

    I heard the opposite, they respect anyone who scores test runs in AUS and he has plenty of them.

    He promises no sledging unless they start and then goes about doing it. As Harsha Bhogale said he lives in a bubble and doesn't want to hear uncomfortable truths. That is why he couldn't go on with a gentleman like Kumble.

    Just speaking from observation on social media (esp Reddit), vast majority of Australians actually 'dislike' Kohli, let alone respect. The English respect Kohli despite being a failure in 2014 series. However Australians don't like his attitude and finds him obnoxious.

    He'd gladly act the same aginst any team in history and still come out on top. There is no one with more cajones and character than him.

    I've never understood this argument about the way players celebrate, the game is 5-6 hours long and you just want a team to win or get a wicket and clap their hands and walk off the pitch? BORING.

    Personally, I dislike Kohli but I can say myself when I'm playing cricket just in the street or little local tournaments I celebrate alot more than he does. It's natural and part of the game and it brings aggression and excitement into the game, if you want to watch a peaceful game go watch golf.

    Too much discussion about this. Kohli can celebrate however he wants (as long as the send offs aren't in the batsman's face), and the crowd can boo whoever they want.

    If it irks some people, they can change the channel.

    Cricketers need to be given leeway to express themselves because this is not the 1890’s anymore where chaps are having an afternoon stroll.

    King Kohli is a brand, a commodity; not a cricketer in singularity. Stagnating him, will result in less fortune for everyone.

    kohli has been this way through out his career.
    He has learnt some diplomatic skill to mask this nature but the brash, street-smart cricketer in him will always be there. And that is what makes his style aggressive.
    That is his adrenaline. Like sehwag who often failed when he played defensively, he has to be aggressive.

    That is good for the team. But do not go overboard like finger showing business of 2011 series is all I would want from him.

    Who determines the behavior that is acceptable and at what costs?

    Cricket fans yearn for players of the past and complain about the lack of dynamic individuals around today. And yet, they want to impose greater scrutiny on their behavior?

    Cricket is a sport and players such as Warne, Botham, Richards, understood that there were people who paid to be entertained along with watching great cricket. Not mindless robots who cannot express themselves.

    Look at the current state of Pakistan cricket. How many times have you heard the following sentence; “Pakistani players today just don’t have the jazba of those who came before them”. Maybe it has something to do with a lack of media training but also something to do with the fact that they are simply holding it all in.

    Kohli. He’s a superstar because he’s a great batsmen but also because he showcases that he will not give the same five answers to the same five questions asked at press conferences.

    I understand a certain section of the fan base wanted decorum and “gentleman” behavior exhibited at all times. But I’m afraid to say that the viewership proves otherwise. Sports are a form of emotional release, both for the individual participating and for the individual viewing.

    What is wrong with the send-offs? Till the time he is not getting in anybody’s face or sledging personal stuff, he is absolutely fine. Too many goody two shoes in the business, passionate characters like Kohli only help to spice up the contest. This is a professional sport afterall, not a competion for ‘gentleman of the year’.

    What is right or needed about it? Is it really necessary to laugh at and taunt a player when you have already got him out.

    You say professional. If that is professional then I've been watching a different sport to you.

    Kohli is a great. He doesn't need to indulge in such behaviour.

    Every sporting professional cant be in the same mold, that will only make it uninteresting - if i want to watch everybody on their best behavior, i might as well watch L’l league baseball. You need both Federers & Djokovichs of the world to keep any sport interesting.

    Kohli does not need to give anybody a send-off, but everything cant be determined basis what the game ‘needs’ from him - people like Kohli, Djokovich derive adrenaline from revving up the crowd around them. Whatever makes them work bro!

    I do not see anything wrong in celebrating with own team-mates.
    Celebrating in the face of a departing batsman is another matter though(Not sure if Kohli did it). I have seen many other bowlers/fielders celebrating in face of departing Indian batsmen as well.
    Never seen those players being called out on PP.

    "despicable" is the only word that comes to my mind every time I watch him to behave like that. He wants to come across as an intelligent guy in front of the media but u can easily tell that its all fake and as an individual he is quite immature and unintelligent.

    Only a person with no self respect will beat someone who's already down. There is a reason why send offs r strongly discouraged in cricket. U have already dismissed the batsman. There is no reason for u to behave like a teenage kid. Its not passion, its called immaturity.

    To top it off, he is the captain of the team. He's a brilliant batsman, no doubt about it. But he hasn't at all matured as an individual.

    You just made a wide array of assumptions about the captain of the #1 test team, basing it off of largely your own inner contempt for him.

    If he were "quite immature and unintelligent," he wouldn't be in the position he is in. He has "no self respect" because he has send offs? How is that for a stream of logic?

    There isn't a template that requires everyone to show passion a certain way. Some are quiet, some are vocal, while others may be more animated. Who are you to decide what counts as "self-respecting" or unintelligent?

    What aggression, he's being an idiot by giving send offs every dismissal acting like he's the one who took the wicket. Worst of all when it happens to him he plays the victim. He has no right.

    seems like another incident yesterday?
    We don't even know if he was looking at him and dont even know what was said.

    This entire thread is crap tbh. Kohli doesnt overtly go out of his way to give send-offs. He just screams and shouts, but very rarely directs them at the batsman.

    Would have loved to see Kohli in the late 80s and early 90s. What a sight it would be with him against Merv Hughes and company!

    Kohli can do whatever he likes.

    If anything, he should amp it up a bit.

    If Murali Vijay or Rahul act like this, it will look stupid. If someone like Kohli who can back up his agression with performance, it looks cool. I am heavily involved in youth sports and some kids perform better when they are angry or get riled up. They say it helps them focus more.

    Ok thanks for pointing that out, I havent been listening to the radio, I have been watching on TV the aussie ex players and commies keep appreciating the passion he brings every time a wicket falls... Having said that, I am not not on board with his over the top passionate send offs, much better to be humble...

    And what about the Aussie attitude of claiming a catch which had surely grounded before landing in the fielding side. Not the first time it has happened either

    I was listening to Fox and all its commentators were in full praise for Kohli. Sometimes the praise went OTT even for an Indian supporter like me. Phrases like King Kohli, no.1 batsman in the world and even what Kohli gifted to his school coach in teachers day was discussed extensively.

    Australian skipper Tim Paine and Indian counterpart Virat Kohli involved in verbal stoush

    Indian captain Virat Kohli and Australian skipper Tim Paine were involved in a spirited exchange of words late on day three of the second Test.
    Australia finished the day on 4-132, with a lead of 175 heading into day four, but Kohli attempted to unsettle his rival three stumps.


    'Gotta bat first, bighead!''Gotta bat first, bighead!'1:45

    Paine appeared to feather one down the leg side, with India appealing before deciding not to review the decision.

    It turned out Paine had not hit the ball, but Kohli fired the first sledge.

    “If he messes this up it is 2-0 and who’s going to talk then?” Kohli said to Paine.

    The Australian skipper smiled before firing back, “You’ve got to bat first big head.”

    Kohli laughed off the remark, before the pair continued to trade barbs, as they walked off the field.

    Paine was referring to the fact that India still need five more wickets, if Aaron Finch decides to bat again and then have to bat last on a deteriorating Optus Stadium surface.

    The fiery exchange sets the tone for what is sure to be an enthralling battle on day four.

    It was a reasonably light hearted exchange, but things appeared to become more heated at the end of play, when Kohli and Paine continued to exchange words as they walked towards the dressing rooms.

    “Tim just asked him where he was going for dinner,” Nathan Lyon laughed.

    “I’ve played enough cricket against Virat to know what he’s like. “Virat’s Virat.

    “Virat Kohli is a great player. He plays on emotion.

    “I’m not worried about what he’s doing or India’s doing.”

    Time will tell if Kohli will have the last laugh and go 2-0 up in the best of four Test series or if Paine’s team can level the series going into the Boxing Day Test.

    There is one thing to play with emotions and being aggressive and another losing all sense of one's own place and worth and acting like a schoolyard bully. Kohli is a masterful bastman but he lacks class.

    Kohli a 'gentleman': Shastri hits back at critics

    India coach Ravi Shastri has passionately defended his captain’s on-field demeanour, describing Virat Kohli as “an absolute gentleman” as Australia’s senior players opted not to provoke the world No.1 batsman ahead of this week’s Boxing Day Test.

    Shastri was in a typically punchy mood at the MCG on Sunday, also firing back at critics of India’s team selection and urging his men to be galvanised by perceived hostile Australian media coverage.

    Firebrand captain Kohli has, as ever, been in the heat of the battle during the first two Tests of the series. In Perth, in particular, he made his presence felt with a brilliant first-innings century, but was also involved in a much-publicised tete-a-tete with opposing captain Tim Paine, attracting criticism from several former players, including Australian greats Mike Hussey and Mitchell Johnson.

    Shastri though, has no issues with his skipper.

    “Fantastic,” he said when asked what he made of Kohli’s behaviour so far in the series.

    “What’s wrong with his behaviour? As far as we’re concerned, he’s an absolute gentleman."

    Asked generally about the way his team had been treated in the Australian media, Shastri said he was hopeful the critics would help his team as they seek to win a Test series in Australia for the first time.

    “I’m never surprised. Bring it on,” Shastri said.

    With the series delicately poised at 1-1 heading into the flagship Tests in Melbourne and Sydney, Australian vice-captain and seamer Josh Hazlewood wasn’t about to query Kohli’s antics.

    “He can do what he wants,” Hazlewood told The Age.

    “It’s out of our control. We’re still focused on how we behave and what we’re doing on the field. We’ll leave that stuff up to him."

    Questioned about whether Australia were trying to get Kohli to boil over, Hazlewood said the challenge was more about attrition.

    “Not necessarily. I think it’s more about wearing their bowlers down and keeping them out there in the field for as long as possible,” he said.

    Australian spearhead Mitchell Starc would not buy in to debate about Kohli's behaviour.

    "You will have to ask their team that. I said it last week - for us it's about focusing on what we do well and what we are going to do this week. What the Indian team want to do, and how Virat wants to captain, is up to them," he said.

    "I have played a couple of IPLs with Virat and he has been fantastic to play under as a captain. Obviously, a fantastic player."

    Usman Khawaja said Kohli's on-field antics had not indicated the pressure of striving for an historic series win was starting to show.

    "Not really. Virat wears his heart on his sleeve. I think it was a tough game for everyone ... it's Test match cricket, that's just how it is. It's an emotional game," he said.

    Upon taking to the stage at a Cricket Australia family day outside the MCG, Kohli was questioned only about his team's on-field performance, declaring the tourists would learn from their errors in Perth. He suggested the pitch at the new WA stadium, which proved to be quick but good for batting and bowling, had suited the home side more.

    He said he would have taken a knotted scoreline to this point had it been offered before the series began.

    "We are quite happy coming to Melbourne at 1-1. You would take that any day of the week if you are going into the third Test in Australia in a series that is so important," he said.

    "We expected Australia to bounce back [after the defeat in Adelaide]. I think on that particular [Perth] wicket, they played much better cricket than we did. They deserved to win, as we did in Adelaide, so we understood one thing - we have to be at the top of our game for all five days against quality opposition."

    India are hopeful of regaining star spinning all-rounder Ravi Ashwin for the third Test after he missed the side’s loss in Perth with an abdominal strain, but Shastri could not guarantee the 342-Test wicket tweaker would be available, with Ashwin to be monitored ahead of the game.

    Meanwhile, Shastri revealed Ravindra Jadeja, the backup spinner who was overlooked for the Perth Test as the Indians opted for a four-pronged pace attack, had also been carrying a shoulder injury.

    Shastri hit back at those in India who had criticised the non-selection of Jadeja when Ashwin was unavailable.

    “When you’re millions of miles way, it’s easy to fire blanks,” Shastri said.

    "When you look at Perth, we felt [Jadeja] was about 70-80 per cent fit and we didn't want to risk that in Perth.

    "The last thing we wanted was someone breaking down after five or 10 overs and then we are stuck for players to pick for Melbourne or Sydney.”

    Jadeja, who did spend a significant amount of time fielding as 12th man in Perth, is also in doubt for Boxing Day.

    "We'll have to evaluate [his] fitness over a 24-hour period and take it one step from there, and also [assess] the conditions," Shastri said.

    The former star all-rounder acknowledged that the form of struggling openers Murali Vijay and KL Rahul was a "big concern" but backed the pair to perform in Melbourne.

    "That accountability has to be taken by the top order and I'm sure they've got the experience, they've got the exposure over the last few years to get out there and deliver," he said.

    All-rounder Hardik Pandya, uncapped opener Mayank Agarwal and batsman Rohit Sharma are all options for India to consider. Sharma is doing well after hurting his back during the first Test.
