Virat apologises for booing Indian fans

June 11, 2019

India cricket captain Virat Kohli showed once again why he is such a great sportsperson. He displayed this on the field in the match against Australia in London on Sunday. Virat showed great sportsmanship when he defended Australian player Steve Smith while he was being booed by Indian cricket fans during the match.

Later Virat took a stand for Smith during the post-match press conference when he said the former Australian captain had done nothing to be treated that way and personally apologised on behalf of the misbehaving Indian fans. Virat said he did not want some Indian fans to set a bad example in front of the world.

What's happened has happened, he's come back, he's worked hard, he's playing well for his side now. Just because there are so many Indian fans here, I didn't want them to set a bad example. He didn't do anything to be booed in my opinion. I felt bad because if I was in a position where something had happened with me, and I'd apologised and accepted it, and came back and still I would get booed, I wouldn't like it either. - Virat Kohli, India cricket captain

Virat also praised the opening partnership and the bowling attack after India's 36-run win against Australia. "It was an outstanding with the ball on a good batting track. You have to bowl well. You can't take things for granted. That 30 runs gives you the luxury," he said.

With the win, India is placed number three in the World Cup 2019 points table. New Zealand are on the top with three wins in as many matches, while England are second.
