Naseeruddin Shah Slams Virat Kohli, Calls Him Worst Behaved Player
Whether Virat Kohli’s aggression on the field is a tad bit too much or not, is a discussion that never goes out of fashion. Some justify it by arguing that it’s just competitiveness and his hunger to win that, while some others shirk it off because he is one of the best cricketers in the world.
But then there’s another lot who disapprove of the ‘banter’, and the screaming and shouting that has become synonymous with the skipper. One of those people is Naseeruddin Shah, who slammed Kohli in a Facebook post on Monday, 17 December.
“Virat K is not only the world’s best batsman but also the world’s worst behaved player. His cricketing brilliance pales beside his arrogance and bad manners,” wrote Shah.
“And I have no intention of leaving the country by the way,” he added, referring to the controversial comment made by Virat, telling a fan to leave India if he didn’t like its players.
India captain Kohli has been in a fresh dual of words with Australia captain Tim Paine in the ongoing Test at Perth. The two skippers’ verbal duel had forced on-field umpire Chris Gaffaney to warn both the players on the fourth morning of the second Test on Monday.
