Ravi Shastri sends a stern warning to Virat Kohli

Virat Kohli, the former captain of the Royal Challengers Bangalore, has been in the news not only for his brilliant batting but also for his involvement in many controversial episodes during the IPL 2023. First, the 34-year-old gave former BCCI chairman Sourav Ganguly the evil eye during a match against the Delhi Capitals. Ganguly is suspected of having a hand in Kohli’s dismissal as India’s ODI captain.

The situation wasn’t resolved until after the match when neither player shook the other’s hand. The cricketers’ unfollowing of each other on Instagram subsequently worsened the situation. On May 1, when Lucknow hosted Bangalore in Lucknow, Virat Kohli got into a heated exchange with Gautam Gambhir, a two-time World Cup champion.

Ravi Shastri, the former head coach of India, commented on all the occurrences, saying that Kohli has to be cautious since cameras are frequently on the players after the match. He cited the examples of renowned cricketers like MS Dhoni and Sachin Tendulkar, who he said had never been engaged in any post-match problems.

“After the sequence of events last week, someone like a Kohli, someone like a Dhoni…Dhoni knows he’s a pro, that there is a camera on you and that is because you guys deserve it after what you guys contributed to the game. There will a camera on you, like there was on Sachin Tendulkar. Remember once the game is over, the camera is on you all the time until you get into that dressing room. You need to be careful, it’s like you are flagged off. If you have that in your mindset…camera, and once the game is over, you will be fine. You can get a lot of brownie points using that camera,” Shastri said while talking to ESPNcricinfo.

Meanwhile, in the current season, the 34-year-old has been punished many times, including having 100% of his match fees reduced in the match versus LSG.
