World Cup 2015: Virat Kohli mistakenly abuses wrong journalist

Sampath Bandarupalli / 03 March 2015

India’s star batsman and team’s vice-captain Virat Kohli commonly known for losing his cool was found, after the training session, abusing at a journalist at Perth on Tuesday ahead of the team’s league game against West Indies at the WACA on Friday.

It was reported that Kohli, when done with his training and returning to the dressing room, read a scribe of a national daily in front of him before talking to media representative.

To the horror of the journalist, Kohli started using the filthiest of language and it went on for some time before he stormed off, and some of the Indian team members looked amazed as to what exactly had happened.

The particular journalist also seemed clueless but once Kohli cooled down, he told someone about an article that had appeared about him and his girlfriend Anushka Sharma in a national daily and he thought that it was that particular journalist, who had written the story.

When he was told that he has mistaken about the reporter’s identity, Kohli called one of the journalists and through him apologized for the incident.

According to some reliable sources, Team Director Ravi Shastri has personally spoken to Kohli and advised him to keep his cool as it is unbecoming of a future India captain to behave in this manner publicly.
