With India fans giving Steve Smith a tough time fielding in the deep, @imVkohli suggested they applaud the Australian instead.

ವಿರಾಟ್ ಕೊಹ್ಲಿ ಕ್ರಿಕೆಟ್‌ನ ಜಂಟ್ಲಮೆನ್. ಕೊಹ್ಲಿ ನಡೆತ ಎಲ್ಲರಿಗೂ ಮಾದರಿ ಎಂದು ಸಾಮಾಜಿಕ ಜಾಲತಾಣದಲ್ಲಿ ಕ್ರಿಕೆಟ್ ದಿಗ್ಗಜರು, ಅಭಿಮಾನಿಗಳು ಪ್ರಶಂಸೆ ವ್ಯಕ್ತಪಡಿಸಿದ್ದಾರೆ.

 

Wow. How good is this from Virat Kohli? Steve Smith is sent to field on the boundary, and immediately cops the most hideous boos from the Indian fans. So Kohli turns to that stand and gestures for them to clap Smith. #CWC19 pic.twitter.com/GBTPaolOXh

Virat Kohli's asking the Indians in the Oval to applaud Steve Smith is such a great gesture. I have seen many amazing cricketers over the years. Rarely seen someone change his game and his attitude so much over a decade. He is an absolute inspiration!

Virat Kohli asked fans to stop chants of "cheater cheater" directed at Steve Smith who was fielding at the boundary.

He asked them to clap for him instead. Lovely sportsmanship by King Kohli. 👏👌🙏 #INDvAUS #CWC19 #INDvsAUS pic.twitter.com/M1W6Krr6DG

Fantastic sportsmanship. Well done Virat Kohli 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

Hopefully this will teach us a lesson back here in Australia and will put an end to booing for future series, as we move into the Ashes and our Summer of cricket, because it’s not just Indian fans that are persisting with this behaviour.
