NEW DELHI – Leading Australian newspaper, The Daily Telegraph titled Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli as the ‘Donald trump of international cricket.’
His dismal performance in India’s home Test gives Australian media a chance to go on.
“Virat Kohli has become the Donald Trump of world sport. Just like President Trump, Kohli decided to blame the media as a means of trying to hide the egg smeared right across his face,” read a paragraph from the piece, as quoted by Samaa TV.
Indian Cricket legend Sunil Gavaskar advised players to cool down and focus on the field.
“We should not bother too much about the Australian media and what they write as they are an extension of their cricket team’s support staff. The focus now should shift to cricket from off-the-field issues,” he said, as quoted by Samaa TV.
