Virat Kohli continues to in the firing line of Australia's cricket fraternity. After an Aussie newspaper compared him to Donald Trump, CA boss James Sutherland said he wasn't sure the Indian captain could spell the word sorry.
Earlier the Australian daily The Daily Telegraph had compared Kohli to Donald Trump, saying "Kohli has become the Donald Trump of world sport.
It came a day after the drawn Ranchi Test after Kohli accused the Australian players of trolling Team India physio Patrick Farhart during the Ranchi Test.
They (four-five of them) started taking Patrick's name. I don't know why. He's our physio. His job is to treat me. I don't find the reason behind it. I could not understand. You must ask why they have started taking his name," Kohli said.
While saving a run on the first day of the third Test, Kohli hurt his right shoulder and Farhart rushed onto the field to attain to his injury. Kohli eventually left the field with the physio and was back in action only on the third day.
Later, Glenn Maxwell was seen mocking Kohli's injury when he imitated his action by clutching his right shoulder after his dive to save a boundary. The Indian skipper, too, gave it back with a similar gesture when David Warner got out in Australia's second innings.
However, Smith insisted that they never disrespected Farhart, who himself is an Australian. "Virat was having a go at me out in the middle and saying how I was disrespecting Patrick Farhart when actually it was the exact opposite. If I was to do anything, (I was inferring) he did a pretty terrific job to get Virat back on the field after that shoulder," Smith said.
Former Australia captain Michael Clarke said "Comparing Virat Kohli with Donald Trump - what a load of shit is that. What Virat did, even Smith would have. I could just laugh about the Trump thing (comparison). I find it quite funny and am sure Virat will also find it quite funny”.
However, Pujara, who has been in top form this season and hammered a double hundred to blunt Australia in the drawn Ranchi Test said it was unfortunate that the focus has been shifted away from cricket and reiterated that Kohli is a great leader.
