Virat Kohli’s aggression and ‘embarrassing’ celebrations on the cricket field have not gone down well with several of his fans and critics,

who have made their displeasure known by taking to social media to criticise one of India’s most success Test captains.

While England middle-order batter Jonny Bairstow may have dismissed his angry exchanges with Kohli on Day 3 of the rescheduled fifth Test

by saying it was part and parcel of the game, given the fiercely competitive nature of the sport, it did leave several cricket pundits unhappy with the Indian stalwart’s gestures.

As Bairstow walked off after scoring a fighting 106 in the first innings, cameras caught Kohli blowing him a kiss. Earlier, on a truncated day two of the Test

when Bairstow was off to an slow start in bowler-friendly conditions, Kohli was heard saying, “A bit faster than Southee, eh?”
