The ongoing ICC World Cup 2019 has already witnessed quite a few interesting moments. One of those was the Indian skipper Virat Kohli asking fans to stop booing Steve Smith when he was fielding in the deep. Meanwhile, the Australian speaks on the gesture from the Indian captain.

Steve Smith and David Warner, who was banned for a year for the ball-tampering scandal in the Cape Town Test last year. They made their international comeback in this World Cup but have been at the receiving end of some poor crowd behaviour in England since they arrived.

Meanwhile, the Indian captain Virat Kohli expressed his sympathy for Steve Smith and apologised on behalf of the crowd after the former Australia captain was heckled and booed by the Oval crowd which was dominated by the Indian contingent.

The Indian captain walked towards the crowd and asked them to stop booing the former Australian skipper and also gestured towards them to applaud good cricket instead. He later walked towards Smith and shook hands.

It won’t bother me – Steve Smith

Speaking of the same, the ex-skipper of Australia Steve Smith quoted that it was a lovely gesture from Virat Kohli. However, he added that he stopped listening such boos from the crowd, as it is a common thing in the recent past for him. Despite that, he stressed that was a lovely gesture from Virat Kohli.

“Yeah, it was a lovely gesture. It doesn’t really bother me what the crowd do to be perfectly honest, I’m just sort of blocking it all out but it was a lovely gesture from Virat, that’s for sure,” ESPN Cricinfo quoted Smith as saying.

Well, it was a fine gesture from the Indian skipper Virat Kohli. So far, they have bagged three victories in their four games with one washout. On the other hand, Australians are at the top of the table with 4 victories in their 5 games.
