India vs Australia 2017: I’m Not Sure Virat Kohli Knows How To Spell Sorry, Says James Sutherland
James Sutherland, Cricket Australia (CA) chief, has taken a sly dig at Virat Kohli, by saying he isn’t sure whether the India skipper knows how to spell sorry.
Sutherland’s remark came after he was asked on a radio chat with Australian channel Fiveaa whether Kohli apologised to Steven Smith in the wake of the DRS controversy that erupted during the Bengaluru Test, when the Australia skipper was caught seeking input from dressing room on a DRS referral.
Speaking after the match, Smith called the moment as a ‘brain fade’ but his Indian counterpart was not convinced with the claims and went on to accuse the Australian team of seeking help from the change-room on referrals throughout the Test. However, the India skipper stopped himself from using the word ‘cheating’.
Since then, Kohli has come under fire from the Aussie media and former players from Down Under. Even Sutherland labelled Virat Kohli’s allegations of cheating against the Australian team as “outrageous” before the two cricket boards buried the hatchet by holding a meeting. But it has not stopped the Aussie media from targeting the 28-year-old Delhi star. He was recently compared to the USA president Donald Trump for his attitude.
Ignoring all the allegations and criticism from the media of his country, Sutherland said:
“Look I am not sure he knows how to spell the word,” he said.
“After the end of this long and cut-throat series, lets hope the boys from both teams get together and have a bit of a laugh.
“I know they are going to spend a lot of time together in the IPL, so I am sure if it doesn’t happen after Dharamsala Test, it will happen during the IPL.”
