Former Australian gloveman Ian Healy has preferred not to add any further fuel to controversy as he denied to comment about Centurion Test incident. He also didn’t make any disputable comment about Indian captain Virat Kohli.

Earlier, Healy made a controversial comment on Kohli as he said, ‘losing respect for Kohli’. Kohli also mentioned a 20-year-old video where Healy was seen pointing his bat towards some fans in Centurion as umpire wrongly gave him out.

However, Healy sealed his lips when he was asked about the Centurion Test incident, even he went on to shower praises for Indian captain. He said, “I have nothing more to add (to the controversy) other than that it would have been nice to hear from Virat when I stated that he was the best batsman I have ever seen."

Recently, when Virat got involved in a verbal banter with his Australian counterpart Steve Smith, Healy had strongly criticized Kohli. But, the Indian captain gave a stunning reply to that comment as he said, “We’ve got 1.2 billion people in India. One person doesn’t make a difference to my life". Kohli didn't stop there, he also dug in the video of 1997 Centurion Test where Healy seemed to be disappointed with umpire’s call while walking back to dressing room.

In Bengaluru Test, Australians failed to chase down the target of 188 in the fourth innings. Kohli and Co. had shown some  great intent in the second Test after losing badly in the series opener in Pune. Kohli also demonstrated his anger when Smith tried to have a look towards the dressing room on the use of Decision Review System (DRS).
