    [VIDEO/PICTURES] Virat Kohli asks fans to stop 'booing' Steve Smith during India vs Australia match








    Good to see someone doing something about it. People have been booing Warner and Smith throughout this World Cup (particularly during that practice match against England) and it’s not really a good thing to see.

    Honestly, I don't think Kohli has any business shaking his head at the crowd and taking the high ground. A few years back, I'd have loved this about him. But there's been too much of this holier than thou stuff from him for it to feel the same now. But anyway, that he respects a fellow great is laudable.

    Like I said in many previous threads having met Kohli he's pure class. The aggression on the field and anger he does to pump up his adrenaline as it helps perform him better.

    Smith has been raking up runs with ease. I don't think he's affected by these crowd antics at all. I like this from Kohli but I do feel he has a need to be validated by his peers.

    Please speak for yourself. Imran Khan was the type of captain I always want not Kohli, he is far too arrogant and acts in a childish manner on the field. Supporters can boo who they like, they pay to watch.

    Thats a bit of a laugh, did you see how the PCB lied and carried on about their three bowlers who got caught cheating.

    Dont give me this holier than thou countries crap. Didnt the president of the PCB make up some lie about England match fixing, it is very rich to hear that other countries are holier than thou.

    I don't like what Kohli did. Especially while the match was still going on. It was unnecessary of him to play the role ofna diplomat.

    Fans will be fans and as long as they aren't calling for violence or racism they can cheer or boo whoever they feel like. Kohli can say in a pkst matcj interview what he thought of it but not during the match.

    On a second thought, i take my comments back. All that booing coming towards Steve Smith is justified, he is a cheat and brought the game to disrepute. Not just that but he harmed the interests of his team and opposition team as well.

    If i could be okay with Amir getting booed, Smith is no different.

    Kohli is no one to tell the crowd to stop booing, the crowd pays to watch and they are entitled to their opinion. @Gilly

    He's nailed it. Most importantly, the Aussies were at the mercy of Indians the whole game. Never sledged, never were in the match. Such is the power of the skipper and their brand that it has made Australia looked soft.

    Personally, never liked Kohli at the start of his career but he has matured with age and there is no doubt about that.

    If he wants to grow his brand, he would go full nationalist which would endear him further among Indians which is the biggest fan base in cricket.

    But trust you to twist something classy he did into having an ulterior motive.

    Ask Indian fans, they accuse Kohli of appeasing Pakistanis all the time. I am just speaking from my observations. The brand Kohli is just not about India, he wants and actually is a global brand.

    I don't think he cares about anybody's opinion. Whatever you do, somebody on the internet will have something stupid to say about it. You cannot make everyone happy. So, I guess he just does what he wants, opinion of somebody else be damned.

    Yes we are mad at him for being too cozy like that. But i don't think there is any ulterior motive behind this gesture. He probably just felt that way. He has strong opinions about certain things. Remember how many commies backed Ashwin for mankading. But Kohli mocked Ashwin after taking his catch in the IPL. He clearly was not happy that Ashwin mankaded Butler even though elite umpires like Simon Taufel backed Ashwin.

    Tbh I donít know if Iím right but I always get the sense Kohli plays politics and tries to be on everyoneís good side. And cares for the media a lot

    In the eyes of the public no one felt the same way about the Pakistani players as they did about Steve Smith, David Warner. No Pakistani player was ever made to cry like a baby in public unlike the so called Alpha Australian players. God knows how many unfair wins the likes of Starc, Hazelwood racked up due to the blatant disgraceful cheating. Rightfully punished and rightfully will be admonished for the rest of their lives now

    When that famous clip of Kohli mingling and having a laugh with Pakistan players after the CT17 went viral, my respect for him went into orbit, while Indian fans were questioning his loyalty.

    This episode further endorses why he is a great player, great personality, and a great sportsman.

    He does represent peace and harmony and plays the game hard and fierce. We could all learn from him.

    Virat Kohli apologises to Steve Smith after India fans chant 'cheater' at Australia batsman: 'In my opinion that's not acceptable'


    Virat Kohli had to apologise to Australia's Steve Smith after he was heckled by Indian fans at The Oval for his part in last year's ball-tampering scandal.

    In a game India won by 36 runs, Kohli gestured to a packed house to show Smith respect after they booed him and chanted: 'Cheater, cheater!'

    'What's happened was long back,' said Kohli. 'He is trying to play well for his side.'

    I'm not putting down Saifi.

    I'm saying Pakistan cricket needs a better leader to represent not only the cricket but also the country especially in a World Cup. Misbah and Afridi actually did a better job of this.

    There are things Sarfraz does well, but let's be real he's not who we want as captain.

    He is a brand and it's literally his job to maintain a likable persona. He has lots of sponsors and has to act in a certain way to get more. Tendulkar was also similar, just different personality.

    Your hatred knows no boundary. If same gesture was shown by a pakistani skipper, You would have been teaching ethic lesson to Indians. So much hate is not healthy.

    No tendulkar seemed genuine. If anything it seemed he did what he thought and didnít have any thing more in mind when he took any decision as a player at least. He didnít go out of his way to compliment anyone or be extra friendly and similarly didnít try to manufacture an aggressive persona on the field. Both which would have made him much more marketable.

    With Kohli I always get the sense that any decision he takes he devotes a time in ensuring that he is pleasing everybody and maintaining a great image. Guys like tendulkar (who to be fair wasnít out there in any aspect anyway) or Ponting didnít seem to care too much in that regard.

    At the end of the day what Iím saying is a bit pointless but what Iím trying to say and what you allude to as well is that with Kohli every decision or act is driven by ulterior motives so the genuineness doesnít remain.

    Ofcourse this is all irrelevant and in no way am I saying that I donít like Kohli. Heís a great. But whenever he does these Ďnice actsí or when he shows aggression which I think is forced, I take both with a pinch of salt.

    Every team has tampered with the ball, especially us Pakistanis, look into it if you will.

    On top of that we have had chuckers cheating their way to wins for us, lets not be hypocrites.

    No reason?

    I wouldn't have booed Smith if I was there, but to say that some people might have no reason to boo him is absurd.

    Kohli has acted and continues to act trashy. That's cool and part of what is endearing about him. But he doesn't get to choose if and when others act trashy. He can mind his business and control his teammates if he wants, as their captain.

    To me this act was him creating some drama to be lapped up by the cameras. Towards the end of the same game, he cracked under the pressure and went berserk after taking Coulter-Nile's catch despite the possibility of an Aussie win being negligible.

    He supported Warner and Smith during their bans privately and in public and that's nice. But he doesn't get to choose how others behave when he's not their captain. At best, he could have sent a message to the crowd by sharing a laugh and handshake with Smith as he ran past him.

    Don't stand there shaking your head in disgust as if this is the worst thing you've ever seen in your pure life.

    I agree Indian fans shouldn't stoop to such level but getting lectured by Kohli is not a great feeling. Whatever you see him doing infront of the camera, it's not 100% genuine.

    Meanwhile, how many Australian players have come out and openly criticised their fans behaviour in the stadium?
