Former Australian fast bowler Geoff Lawson said that Indian captain Virat Kohli’s “actions are those of the worst behaved player” on the side. He also said that as a captain Kohli has to behave better than the way he has during the ongoing four-match Test series against Australia.
Speaking on Fox Sports News, Lawson said about Indian skipper, “Well Virat’s consistent. You’ve got to give him that, he’s consistent. As a leader and as a captain of a cricket team where you’ve got lots of responsibilities, you’ve got to show more gravitas and responsibility than this. These sorts of actions are those of your worst behaved player.”
Former Aussie pacer further added on this, “Send-offs are supposed to be against the code of conduct and he was certainly caught on camera using some bad language in the second Test match. I’m surprised he didn’t get reported. But he must be treading a really fine line with the umpires and match referees because you’re not supposed to give players send-offs.”
Lawson said that Kohli has used bad languages which are not acceptable. Geoff Lawson further said, “Kohli has been pretty much unacceptable. And for a captain to then carry out a press conference and then just show so little diplomacy. But he’s a great, great player. He’s one of the best players going around, but you’ve got to behave as a captain better than that.”
