Former Indian skipper and senior batter Virat Kohli is enjoying a purple patch with the bat in the ongoing 20-20 World Cup 2022. He has scored 156 runs in three innings with two half-centuries having an amazing average of 156.00 with two not-outs. Although he couldn’t click in the recent match against South Africa where he could score only 12 runs and fell prey to Lungi Ngidi.
Apart from the action on the ground, now the 33-year-old contemporary legend is in the headlines of social media for the recent video that he uploaded to his official Instagram handle. The video is of Virat Kohli’s hotel room in Perth, while reacting to the video, the senior right-hander expressed that it was really ‘appalling’ and a breach of privacy.
Here’s the video to which Virat Kohli reacted:
“I understand that fans get very happy and excited seeing their favorite players and get excited to meet them and I’ve always appreciated that. But this video here is appalling and it’s made me feel very paranoid about my privacy. If I cannot have privacy in my own hotel room, then where can I really expect any personal space at all?? I’m NOT okay with this kind of fanaticism and absolute invasion of privacy. Please respect people’s privacy and not treat them as a commodity for entertainment,” reads the caption of a video post posted by Kohli.
Following this video and dissatisfaction from Kohli, the renowned names of the cricketing fraternity also reacted to the same.
“This is ridiculous, totally unacceptable. Was this Perth?” commented senior Australian batter, David Warner. Famous Australian sports journalist Chloe Amanda Bailey also reacted to the same and wrote in the comment section of the post, “This is absolutely appalling. I hope management takes swift action and puts better controls in place. Sorry, this happened to you.”
Now, Virat Kohli will be seen in action with the Indian team in their next match against Bangladesh on the 2nd of November at Adelaide Oval in Adelaide.
