Virat Kohli Called the Worst Behaved Player By Former Pakistan Coach, Geoff Lawson
Virat Kohli, the captain of the Indian cricket team, has been hitting the headlines for his odd reasons. From star batsman Kohli being infuriated by Smith as he sought the advice of his dressing room while contemplating a DRS, the sport of cricket is churning controversy every day.
More recently, Kohli claimed the Australia players mocked India’s physio during the third Test in Ranchi. It took a weird turn when Australian media compared Kohli to US President Donald Trump pursuant to his “fake accusations”.
Now, it is Geoff Lawson, former Pakistan coach and Australian fast bowler, who has decided to give his piece of mind about Kohli and his mannerism calling him the “worst behaved player”.
While talking to Fox Sports, Lawson said, “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.”
“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. And his language 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,” Lawson added.
