Virat Kohli's has every right to Steve Smith off!!!

Virat Kohli has every right to send Steve smith off!!

 

 

Quite a fuss about Kohlil giving send off to Smith since 2 days specially in Australia and Parosis!

 

Lots of people are having a go at Virat Kohli here who havent watched video or who blindly hates him.Not blaming Steve Smith but talking during Batting is quite a disrespectful to opponents indicating his overconfidence and "i can hit you anywhere attitude."

 

Even if he is mic'ed up,these are not the things to ask"WHERE ARE YOU GONNA HIT HIM?and replying "SEE WHAT I CAN DO FOR YOU"..Channel 9 is worst among all but that is disgraceful.They behave like thier buddies which they actually are but should behave like commies!

 

At the end of the day he should accept that he was destracted rather than saying he was trying to do what he wanted to and got out!!These sorts of technology should be removed from internationals!

Those Padosis are sore losers, can't take a winner from their arch rivals. Idiots.

How can someone forget the Monkeygate in Australia. They made such a huge gossip out of it. These Aussies can't take sledging one bit, but will do it to others. :finger:

Aussies the pussies. These mofo think they can decide what is sledging and what is not. When others do it then it is not cricket but when they do it becomes hard fought banter. They keep crying about what happens in the ground should remain there but now this cunt is crying in front of their media. This is why I admire Kohli. Aussies are the definition of hypocrisy. Just loving it. Wanna see a lot of abuses today

Hmmm Kohli standing firm to the Aussies, kind of reminds me of a young left hander back in 2001 which changed the way Indians played cricket forever.

Well done Kohli. The Aussies are pissed here in Australia and hate him. If it is possible I love Kohli just that bit more for that send off. Dhoni belongs to the submissive old school of Indian captains.

By standing up to the convicts it forces those Indian players to play better or be laughed at. Seems to be working for India. Kohli takes his game to another level and yet struggled in India against an average SA attack.

I remember captain Ricky Ponting physically pushing the then BCCI head, Sharad Pawar , during a photo shoot post a series victory. 

Glen McGrath shouted at and abused an Indian umpire for turning down his appeal, and the Aussie commentators laughing and saying that more will follow....and nothing was done by the ICC in either of these cases.

We need players like Ganguly and Kohli to return these favours. Quite a few new players are quite aggressive too, like Ishant, Rohit, Jaddu

I for one think its different cricketing culture. T20 cricket is seen as entertainment in Australia and Smith was just adding the enjoyment of it by commentating. Virat should just chill when its not necessary to show aggression.

 

 Have you ever seen a player commentating while batting? It's a disrespect to the game and opposition. If they don't it take seriously, there's no need for them to play T20 format.

McGrath was a big pussy. He would dish it out but could not take it when someone gave it back. Remember Lara and Sarwan getting stuck into McGrath and he started whining like a little bitch.

What I think really happened:

-Steve Smith is just replying to commentators.

-They used these in Big Bash as well and players like Gayle used them too early on, not just Australians.

-Kohli thought he was sledging Jaddu when talking at non strikers end. He thought he was talking crap (how is he supposed to hear channel 9 commentary it's not playing in stadium)

-Sent him off for being a loud mouth. Later probably realised why Smith was talking :hysterical:

Moral of the story: Who cares send him off anyway. Good job! :hysterical:

Also:

It was not his choice, was it? Channel 9 have him wired up with the commies. He was just adding to the entertainment when commies were having a funny chat.probably Virat didn't knew about it and thought he was sledging the bowlers.

I don't think channel nine would have  forced it upon him if he did not want it. Batting requires a lot of concentration even in T20s.

The players commentating whilst batting and fielding has honestly been the best part of the big bash, the insight and level of involvement it gives the fans is sensational, and that at the end of the day is all that matters, the fans, without them, they are playing for nothing.

If it wasn't him, someone else would have got the mike. Come on yaar. That's silly.

Someone else would not have if the Australian team management told them not to.

There must be some demarcation between the Big Bashes of the world and serious international games.

Would you like it if Rohit or Kohli got out while talking to the commentators ?

Player involvement can be brought about by talking to a fielder just after a delivery has been bowled and the bowler is going back to the  start of his run-up.

Good on Kohli for having Pandya's back. This is the kind of stuff that builds a team and augurs well for Kohli as a future captain.

Lovely article 

 

On a blazing Sunday afternoon, just more than 47,000 fans were in attendance for the third One-Day International between Australia and India in Melbourne. Some days later, on a cold Friday (January 29) evening, about 60,000 fans thronged the MCG for the Twenty20 International between the same teams.

Clearly, the fans love the shortest game more.

It was the last international cricket game at the MCG for the summer, with India coming into it 1-0 ahead in the series. There were more reasons for the fans to come to the stadium despite the wet, windy and cold weather conditions. The T20 game brings in more families to the cricket – the mind-blowing numbers from the Big Bash League just additional proof of it.

Many have a choice of the player they would want to focus on. A father, who came to the stadium with his two kids, told me that his children get most excited when Glenn Maxwell is in action. Within minutes after Maxwell took strike, the kids – aged six and eight – were heart-broken. While they jumped on their seats when he walked in, they were crushed like cans after he was dismissed cheaply.

“They just love his style of play. He is a pretty cool stroke player, isn’t he?”

While there are still enough connoisseurs of Test cricket around Australia, Maxwell’s stroke-making ability is what the youngest among the fans now crave.

After he was dismissed, the father had to explain to the youngsters what was happening, and why it was happening. “Wickets are falling quickly, so it is important to bat defensively for just a couple of overs to get back into this game.” The slam-bang had to wait.

While the chase was edging towards a climax during the middle overs of the Australia innings, Virat Kohli was as active and energetic as ever. The cameras at the MCG focus him more than on anyone else – even when Kohli is at long-off or deep midwicket, the camera captures him more than it does the players out in the middle. His emotions are extremely engaging and it surely does impact the youngsters that come to watch the game.

Kohli wins the battle almost every time against the Australian bowlers, and that in itself has earned him respect in the opposition camp. His name doesn’t just ring around the MCG, it continues wherever the Indians go. It’s almost like the 1990s and Sachin Tendulkar – India might lose matches but Tendulkar rarely did.

After Kohli’s vocal send-off to Steven Smith in the first T20I in Adelaide, the media was divided in its opinion. Smith later came out and said, “I don’t really think that’s on.” But every Australian on the street supported I spoke with the same man and asked him if sledging sends the right signals for cricket’s newest followers. He said, “A banter is always nice, isn’t it? He plays the game with passion and it is perfectly all right for the kids too. Everybody sledges. It’s just a part of the sport for a very long time. Kids would not get affected by it.”


The taxi driver, who gave me a lift late in the night, apparently watched half the game with his son at home before getting out to work. “The best part about Virat Kohli is his passion. He loves the game to bits. It is absolutely all right for him to give it back to the Australians. Don’t the Australians do it all the time? David Warner is very loud. Steven Smith himself is cheeky. Shane Warne, Ricky Ponting, Glenn McGrath and, even, to an extent, Mark Waugh had a word or two to say to the opponents even after a batsman is dismissed,” he reasoned. “It is perfectly alright for Kohli to give it back especially when he knows that the Australians target the young ones in the time.”The opinion on Kohli was shared, and not restricted, to just the stadium.

That last bit has become common knowledge since Kohli told Channel 9 viewers during the break in the game that his aggressive verbals at Smith was in reaction to the Australian’s alleged sledging of Hardik Pandya, who made his debut in that match.

“These Australian cricketers almost always target the young blokes in the opposition, don’t they? No wonder Kohli gave it back,” said a police officer, who I met at the airport on Sunday as I waited to cheer on the Indian team as it took a flight to Sydney for the final game.

“It is not that Virat is all talk and no substance. He loves Australian fast bowlers. He loves scoring runs against us and he is just so special. He is very Australian in the way he plays cricket. He plays proper cricket strokes even in a T20 game. It is not that he uses his bat to chop wood. He plays pure and clean strokes. If Kohli was an Australian, he would be a superstar celebrated like Shane Warne probably,” the cop went on.

While Kohli’s quality as a batsman in Australia is recognised, his desire to win the game on Saturday night was discernible to everyone. He was very involved even during the ODIs, but in the T20Is, he has been sharing a fair bit of MS Dhoni’s load on the field. He was around the fast bowlers while standing at mid-off and mid-on and, even when Jasprit Bumrah was bowling the final over with the game done and dusted, Kohli was in the bowler’s ears throughout. Every minute of the game, whether it had to do with fielders being a few feet away from where they had to be or congratulating someone who had pulled off a good piece of fielding, it was Kohli, right there, all the time.

Playing the sport aggressively is the only way Kohli knows. He carries that with his body language in a very pronounced manner. When he dived to stop a ball at mid-on, he was aggressive. When he was the backup for a throw from Bumrah, he was, of course, aggressive.

Four years is a long time. When Kohli first toured with the Indian Test team, in 2011-12, he invited trouble for flipping the bird at a section of the Sydney crowd. It was unlike anything any Indian had done on a cricket field. Today, the man has emerged a victor.

As the Australian youngsters in the stands scream “Viraaat!” a hundred times before he turns around and waves or smiles at them, Kohli is more accepted, even embraced, in the cricket-watching community than he was back in 2012. The brash teenager is now being compared to the sport’s legends.

Dhoni’s joke about the Adelaide Oval soon having a stand after his name might well be just that, a joke, but it’s not beyond the realm of possibility. Like everyone keeps saying, isn’t he more Australian than Indian? Ask around – he is half-Ozzie now.
