Well, Virat Kohli has always been on the headlines for obvious reasons. Though most of them because of breaking the records but this time, it is for another reason, as he once again showed his different side on the field against Kings XI Punjab at M Chinnaswamy Stadium on Wednesday.
The incident took place in the final over of the match when Ravichandran Ashwin was dismissed to Umesh Yadav after smashing a six off the first ball over long on. Virat Kohli, who caught the ball at the long-on region has given him a heated send-off, which didn’t go down well with the Twitter users.
Well, Ravichandran Ashwin played down by calling that the skipper of RCB and himself plays the game passionately. Meanwhile, Virat Kohli hasn’t responded anything on it, as he wants to enjoy the victory, which is their 3rd on a row.
Here are the tweets:
Earlier it was @GautamGambhir vs @msdhoni Now it was @imVkohli vs @ashwinravi99.. Does Nepotism ruling players out of Indian team or its jus their out of form play. Yesterdays incident doesn't seem to be made out of passion towards sport. Clear picture of Bitterness!!— Prathyush Adapa (@prathyu127) April 25, 2019
Certainly, Virat Kohli is the world’s greatest batsmen of the present time but would he ever become the world’s greatest player? @bhogleharsha @BCCI @imVkohli @ashwinravi99— Nitin kumar (@nitin567567) April 25, 2019

What's wrong with u Virat Kohli. This is not a celebration it's abusing someone. Ashwin is ur team mate. Give respect ur team mate.
