"Kohli doesn't have the rights to stop fans from booing," Former cricketer blasts KohliHome > News Shots > Sports news
Former England opener Nick Compton's dislike for India skipper Virat Kohli is a well known one given his attack on him on Twitter mocking his "consistency" remark made by a fan last year.
This time he has come up with yet another remark. While the whole world is all praise for Kohli for his gesture towards Steve Smith, Compton slammed the India skipper for the same. Compton was not at all impressed with the way Kohli handled the crowd at the Oval, reports Crictracker.
Smith was facing the heat from the Indian fans because of the ball-tampering scandal. The fans were booing and jeering him when he was fielding near the boundary ropes, calling him a cheater. But Kohli intervened and asked the fans to stop it and asked them to cheer for him instead.
Smith acknowledged the gesture and shook hands and patted his back. The cricketing world praised Kohli. However, Compton thought otherwise.
"I don’t think Virat Kohli had any right to tell fans to stop booing at Warner and Smith but rather clap them.. found it rather condescending if truth be told!" tweeted Compton.
