Former India opener Gautam Gambhir has slammed Virat Kohli after his aggressive behavior on Day 3 of the third and final Test in Cape Town. In the third session of Day 3, Kohli and his teammates lost their cool after Proteas skipper Dean Elgar was saved by Decision Review System. Kohli went close to the stump mic and said, “Focus on your team as well and not just the opposition. Trying to catch people all the time.”
Gautam lambasted the Test skipper and said that he would never be an idol to youngsters.
“Kohli is very immature. It’s worst for an Indian captain to say like this in stumps. By doing this, you will never be an idol to youngsters. In the first innings when you got a 50-50 call on caught behind, then you were silent and in Mayank appeal too.”
Earlier, Kohli was heared sledging Elgar. ‘Unbelievable. After a Man of the Match performance in the last game, running (away) from Jasprit. Chirping for 13 years, Dean, you can’t keep me quiet,” Kohli said from slips.
KL Rahul and R Ashwin also joined Virat. “Whole country playing against XI guys,” said KL Rahul.
“You should find better ways to win Supersport,” said R Ashwin.
