The war of words between the Australian media and Virat Kohli does not seem to be going away anytime soon. (Aussie media calls Kohli ‘childish’ and ‘classless’)
After India won the fourth test match in Dharamsala, Steve Smith apologized for his aggressive conduct in the post match presentation. He also apologized for his behavior in the press conference after the game in an effort to thaw the hostilities that were present during the series.
“I have been pretty intense throughout this series. I really wanted to do well for the team. At times I have been in my own bubble and have let my emotions slip. I apologise for that” said Smith.
But Kohli did not seem to be in a forgiving mood as he said that he was no longer friends with the Australian players. (Aussie media calls Kohli ‘childish’ and ‘classless’)
Now the Australian media has hit back at Kohli calling him ‘childish’ and ‘clueless’.
These are some of the headlines that were flashed across newspapers in Australia yesterday after the Test match was over.
“Virat Kohli had to shake hands and move on after series win but he acted like a child.”
“Beergate: Kohli’s latest classless act.”
“All Virat Kohli had to do was say sorry. Steve Smith did.”
“If there were any doubts about the poor spirit between the Indian and Australian sides it was confirmed after the series when the home side shunned a suggestion the two sides drink together.” (Aussie media calls Kohli ‘childish’ and ‘classless’)
Clearly the Australian media are upset with the way Kohli has behaved with the Australian team in the test series. Kohli to his credit has stuck to his guns but he might have been well served to have apologized even if it was just for the cameras.
