Indian Cricketer Showed Middle Finger to Australia Crowd
Annoyed with the insulting remarks made by the Australian crowd, India cricketer Virat Kohli showed his middle finger to them at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) on Wednesday during the Second Test Match of Border-Gavaskar Trophy between Australia and India.
However, Kohli justified his act on the social networking site twitter after the second day’s play.
“I agree cricketers don’t have to retaliate. What when the crowd says the worst things about your mother and sister. The worst I’ve heard,” tweeted Kohli. Reacting to Kohli’s tweet, England batsman Kevin Pietersen tweeted, “ha ha ha ha ha!!! Welcome to Australia buddy!!”.
What Pietersen intended to say with his tweet is that, every cricketer who tours Australia will face the same treatment from the crowd there. Kohli responded back to Pietersen, saying: “never heard crap like that. EVER.”
According to the ICC’s Code of Conduct Level 1 – “Using language or gesture(s) that is seriously obscene, seriously offensive or of a seriously insulting nature to another player, player support personnel, umpire, match referee or any other third person during an international match”.
Kohli could face a penalty of 50% cut in his match fee or suspension for 1 test match as part of the disciplinary action, if he is found guilty.
