Sydney, Jan 5: After he was fined 50% of the match fee for showing an obscene gesture to the crowd reveals the reason why he had to do it on a social networking site, Twitter.
After a frustrating day at the field having conceded 366 runs for one wicket, Virat Kohli could not retaliate as the crowd abused him while he was fielding as the audience started abusing his family members which made him show his middle finger to the crowd.
A day after the incident, Kohli tweets on his twitter page, saying that "I agree cricketers dont have to retaliate, what when the crowd says the worst things about your mother and sister? The worst I have ever heard!
His reply to Kevin Pietersen also shows how much the crowd had abused him as he says, 'he had heard crap like that EVER'
Poor guy, he doesn't know how Aussie media and the crowd behave, this is just the beginning. This could be another game to just distract the visitors.
Australia, known for playing mind games and abusing cricketers, this episode doesn't seem to be new, but for Kohli as this happens to be his first tour Down Under, and such crap comments do make you go insane for a moment and that's exactly what happened to Kohli on Wednesday after listening to those abuses.
If a cricketer can be punished on such grounds, a similar rule needs to be made for a spectator so that the comments do not distract or disturb the players. Is ICC hearing? Why are Indians targeted every time?
