The match between India and Australia, had so much drama for the cricket lovers especially for the Indian fans to cherish about. Starting from the solid start of the opening batsmen to Kohli asking fans to cheer for Steve Smith, yesterday’s match is a pure example for a clinical cricket.
The Indian captain walked towards the crowd and asked them to stop booing the former Australian skipper and also gestured towards them to applaud good cricket instead. He later walked towards Smith and shook hands.
Both Smith and fellow Australia batsman David Warner have been on the receiving end of jeers from opposition fans at the World Cup following their return to the international arena after serving year-long bans for their respective roles during a ball-tampering scandal in South Africa.

Kohli won millions of hearts that day by his sweet gesture except for one. Former English cricketer Nick Compton was not at all impressed by Kohli display and “found it rather condescending“. He shared his video saying, “I don’t think Virat Kohli had any right to tell fans to stop booing at Warner and Smith but rather clap them.”

He asked Nick not to drink before making statements about players like Kohli. In his tweet Twary said “Wat is wrong wit this man ?? Humanity is far more beyond just rights nd wrongs in life. Grow up Nick Compton. U wont understand how we Indians feel about certain things in life. Request you to not drink before u make such comments 👍”

“Look I think what’s happened has happened, long back. The guy is trying to play well for his side. It’s not good to see someone down like that to be honest,” Kohli said later in the press meet about his gesture.

“We’ve had a few issues in the past, a few arguments on the field, but you don’t want to see a guy feeling that every time he goes out to play.”
