Recently, Virat Kohli’s team suffered a crushing defeat in the Mumbai ODI at the hands of Australia (India vs Australia), but Virat’s name has added two more achievements. The ICC has rewarded Virat for his behaviour in the World Cup on Wednesday for the shooting of Smith. Apart from this, Virat has been made the captain of the ODI and Test team of the year 2019.
At the same time, Virat Kohli disliked the behaviour of the spectators who hooted Steve Smith in the match against Australia in the ICC World Cup and then hinted to cheer him. This behaviour of Virat has been rewarded by the ICC.
The ICC has said in the tweet that who remembers such behaviour during Virat Kohli’s World Cup. In this tweet, 2019 ICC Spirit of the Cricket has been written with the photo of Virat.
Last year, Virat Kohli won the Test series against West Indies, South Africa, and Bangladesh, because of which Team India succeeded in achieving the number one position in the World Test Championship. At the same time, in the ODI format, Team India was successful in making the semi-finals of the ICC World Cup 2019.
Steve Smith returned from a ban in April last year due to a ball-tampering controversy. After this, spectators in England started hooting him during the World Cup, but during the World Cup match between India and Australia, Virat did not like Smith’s hooting and indicated to the audience that he should encourage Smith. During this, resentment was also visible on Virat’s face.
