Virat Kohli is the most loved cricketer in the modern day cricket. But what was done by him yesterday has created ripples among Indians. November 16, was the of India v/s Sri Lanka test and when the national anthem was sung, Indian skipper Virat Kohli was seen chewing gum.
The first match took place at the Eden Gardens and the video in which Kohli is seen munching gums is going viral on social media. This was not the first time when an Indian Player was caught munching a gum. Previously, this was done by Jammu & Kashmir all-rounder Parvez Rasool, he had to face the wrath of the social media in his debut match against England in a T20 match.
We should condemn both Virat Kohli and Parvez Rasool!!!
From a cooli to a CEO, every Indian should respect the national anthem of India. When Parvez Rasool did the act of disrespecting the national anthem, he was condemned by Indians. Now, Indian Cricket Team skipper Virat Kohli has done the same mistake.
He might have had done unintentionally, but it is a wrong act. Indians are proud of his achievements because under his captaincy, he has continued the dominance of Indian team like that of former skipper MS Dhoni.
Indians will commit a mistake if they don’t question Kohli!!!
Even though Kohli has done a mistake, every Indian knows that he loves India and its symbols like a soldier who guards India at the border. Today, if we don’t oppose him, than many more would purposely disrespect Indian flag. In the course of time, this may affect the integrity of the nation.
Rasool had said that “Let cricketers play cricket and don’t involve them into politics unnecessarily. I try to keep my focus on the game and don’t let these controversies affect me”.
It would be better if Virat Kohli comes out and clarifies regarding the controversy. Perhaps a sorry would do much better.
Controversies of Virat Kohli!!!
In 2012, Virat Kohli had sparked a controversy after he had raised his middle finger at the Australian crowd. Later Virat Kohli had clarified in his tweet regarding why he showed such kind of gesture. He tweeted “I agree cricketers don’t have to retaliate. what when the crowd says the worst things about your mother and sister. the worst I’ve heard (sic)”.
During an IPL game against Delhi Daredevils in 2015, the Indian skipper was spotted chatting with Anushka Sharma in the box during the rain break. This was against the rule of BCCI.
