Virat Kohli hits back at Ian Healy’s “losing respect” jibe

Team India leveled the four-match Test series in Bengaluru in style after winning the second Test by 75 runs against Australia. Leading from the front, skipper Virat Kohli once again brilliantly motivated his side in defending a modest target of 188 in the fourth innings to script one of the most memorable victories in the history of Indian cricket.   

 

After getting annihilated at home in the first Test in Pune, the world number one side played to their potential in the second, showing great fight and determination to keep the series alive. India and Australia are known to play aggressive cricket on the field and so far both the sides have maintained their reputations by playing some really competitive on-field cricket.

 

In that quest, Team Indian team has tried to unnerve the Aussies with some constant on-field banter and verbal volleys. Indian skipper Virat Kohli himself led the charge and himself after getting into the mix of things to unsettle the Australian batsmen. The 28-year old’s on-field behaviour received some flak from former Australian wicketkeeper Ian Healy, who recently came out and said that ‘Virat Kohli was losing respect' due to unnecessary sledging on field.

 

 

Speaking at the post-match conference, the fiery Delhi-lad responded to Healy’s comments about him and also went a step ahead by advising the journalists to check the latter’s videos on Youtube of his playing days. The Australian has been trolled by a lot of Virat's fans since making a comment about the Indian captain.

 

 

 

Kohli also added that he isn’t bothered about what Ian Healy’s thinks about him and what matters to him is the views of 1.2 billion people who continue to back the Indian skipper.
