Virat Kohli is world's worst behaved player, says Naseeruddin Shah

Virat Kohli is world's worst behaved player, says Naseeruddin Shah

The on-field umpire Chris Gaffaney had to interrupt the two players reminding them that they both are captains of their respective teams.

Following 24 hours of skirmish and lukewarm sledging between the skippers, Paine landed the knockout blow when he whispered to Murali Vijay: "I know he (Kohli) is your captain, but you can't seriously like him as a bloke?".

"If he messes it up, it's 2-0", Kohli was heard saying, which was picked up by the microphone after he and his teammates made a loud caught-behind appeal for Paine in the final over of the day.

'Look, I don't mind the battles out there but if you're going to say something like that in the papers or in the media and go against your word you've to expect something in return'.

India aren't on the same page when it comes to selection, while footage has revealed tempers flared between teammates Ishant Sharma and Ravindra Jadeja during Australia's second innings on day four of the second Test. But thanks to Shami's splendid spell, Australia were all out for 243 in their second innings. He was also bashed severely by Australian head coach Justin Langer, who mentioned that Kohli shouldn't have celebrated aggressively after Aaron Finch's dismissal, during the opening Test in Adelaide. When you play Test cricket it is a long match and you have a long time so a little bit aggression is there and sometimes you react in the moment.

A mere handful of balls later, Kohli deliberately put himself in Paine's path as he was completing a casual single, causing the pair to chest up to one another. "Certainly, not all the focus is on Virat Kohli", he said.

"Last year, we got there four times out of five, so we are feeling pretty confident". According to me, we should leave this here.

After India conceded a 43-run lead on first innings, Mohammed Shami claimed a career-best 6-56 to restrict the target to fewer than 300. "It is part of the game as it should be", he said, of the Paine comment.

"He's obviously one of the greatest of all time to ever play the game".
