Actor Naseeruddin Shah slammed skipper Virat Kohli by sharing a post on his Facebook account. He blasted Kohli for his behavior on-field in the India VS Australia series. Virat has been engaged in a tiff with Australian Captain Tim Paine and on Day 3 of the match, he took a jibe at him. On Day 4 of the Perth Test, the umpire had to intervene as the captains got into a heated argument. Virat was frustrated over the Paine-Khawaja partnership. Virat and Tim’s spat has got social media users divided with many Australian fans slamming him for his behavior.

Paine was in fact caught on mic telling Murali Vijay, “I know he’s your captain but you can’t seriously like him as a bloke.” After the argument spilled over to Day 4, umpire Chris Gaffaney told, ‘That's enough, that's enough. Come on, play the game. You guys are the captains.” Today veteran actor, Naseeruddin Shah wrote on his Facebook account, “Virat K is not only the worlds best batsman but also the worlds worst behaved player. His cricketing brilliance pales beside his arrogance and bad manners.. And I have no intention of leaving the country by the way.”

Virat Kohli and Tim Paine came close to chest thumping when Paine took to take a single at 71 and Virat came charging towards him.

Naseeruddin Shah also took a dig at Virat’s statement to a fan recently about leaving the country. Virat had said in a promotional video for his brand to a fan who had said he likes English and Australian batsmen that he shouldn’t live in India, ‘go live somewhere else,’ he had said.

I totally agree. Virat needs to show some respect and not behave like some spoilt brat.

Both husband and wife are full of themselves. Kohli needs to learn some serious lessons from Kumble as to how to conduct himself on the field. Disgusting.....

Trust NS to call it like it is, VK needs to be pulled into line by someone!

He needs to get his manners in line, he represents an entire country and frankly he is embarrassing us. Grow up Kohli!

No amount of accolades achieved by Kohli compared to his obnoxious bad behavior.

Whatever accolades Virat has achieved, he has brought disgrace to the sport in equal measure. His wife and him are such arrogant and obnoxious people that their achievements seem shallow in contrast.

Absolutely agree with Naseer sir. Virat is a gem of a player but he has behavioural and attitude issues. Its always as if he is trying to prove a point. "If they did it for so many years, why shouldn't we" is the most lame excuse anybody can use.
Virat better check his attitude.

Dravid and Dhoni can’t even compare to the way Kohli behaves like an immature spoilt brat.. new money no class

100% agree. I am australian Indian and I've always supported the team but he is an absolute embarrassment!

I agree. Because he is the best player out there everyone excuses his bad behviour. He gets away with everything. Whether it's firing Kamble, hiring his yes man Shastri, humiliating a stranger , hia so called aggressive behavior....Every.single.thing. just because he is a national hero does not mean he should not be called out for his mistakes and rude behavior. People blindly worship him and attack anyone who cares to speak the truth about his arrogant, entitled behavior.

He acts like a spoilt brat and that takes away from the game. If you are a captain and represent your country, you better behave.

Agree

so true

Naseeruddin Shah is so right!

No one is doubting the fact that Kohli is talented and lucky. But he seems to be a very obnoxious personality. Cricket has always been known as the gentleman's game. But this is guy just new money, and no ethics or class.

The only people who seems to like Kohli is some kind of cricketing world's version of bhai-tards. LOL

This comment is SO spot on! Couldn't agree more.

true, true,true ,true!!!!!!!

success in wrong hands ! leave this country with ur wife pls

Totally agree.
Compare him with Dhoni and Dravid... they are so down to earth.

Completely agree.?Dravid was a class act, still is.

True
