Kohli unperturbed by Ian Healy’s comments
Bengaluru, March 7 (IANS) Responding to former Australia vice-captain Ian Healy’s comments on Virat Kohli losing respect in his eyes for his on-field antics, the India skipper on Tuesday said one individual’s comments do not make a difference to him.
Healy had on radio claimed that Kohli’s over-the-top on-field aggression and antics were beginning to diminish the respect he had for him.
But Kohli, under whom India registered a 75-run win in the second Test against the Kangaroos here, hit back at the Australian by citing an infamous moment of 1997, when a furious Healy gestured to the crowd before hurling his bat on return to the dressing room at Centurion Park.
“We’ve got 1.2 billion people in India, one person doesn’t make a difference to my life. Also you need to go and search on YouTube when he was given out down the leg side,” Kohli said, on being asked about Healy in the post-match conference.
“I heard he said something about me not having good behaviour with the umpires. I think you all should YouTube that video and I think that says it all,” the 28-year-old added.
