Virat Kohli Controversy
The reporter had asked “Virat, what was your reaction to the behaviour in the field yesterday, swearing at (Kane) Williamson when he was out, swearing at the crowd. As an Indian captain, doesn’t he think he needs to set a better example on the field?”
On asking this, he fired back at the journalist and said-
Kohli said, you need to find out exactly what happened and then come with a better question. It is better to come here with full knowledge and keeping half details of what happened, is no use to discuss on controversial issues. And on the top of that, if you are interested to create controversy, then this is not the right place for that. He said, he had already spoken to the match referee and he had no issues with what had happened.
In the consecutive two Tests, on traditional New Zealand green wickets, India managed scores of 165, 191, 242 and 124. Virat Kohli himself, too failed to fire ending up with scores of 2, 19, 3 and 14 in his four innings.
