Australian Legend Ian Healy Says That He Is Losing His Respect For Virat Kohli, Here Is Why

Updated on 8 March, 2017 at 11:31 am By

Former Australian cricketer and wicket-keeping great Ian Healy has slammed Indian captain Virat Kohli and said that he is “losing respect” for him, due to his constant sledging of the Australian players in the ongoing Test series.

While other former Australian cricketers felt differently, Healy feels Kohli has disrespected Australia and that his trademark on-field aggression is also putting pressure on his teammates.

 

Talking about Kohli’s sledging spree on day two of the second Test in Bangalore, Healy told Melbourne radio station SEN,



“The pressure is starting to tell on (Kohli). I’m losing respect for him. He’s got to be a lot more respectful of his opponents. The stuff he did with Steve Smith was unacceptable.”

On day 2 of the ongoing Test match, Kohli had frequent exchanges with Australian captain Steven Smith and even told Australian opener Matt Renshaw, to take a “toilet break” as he did in the Pune Test.

 

Healy added that he also felt Kohli’s actions was putting unwanted pressure on his own players as he is the captain.

“I’ve said in the past, he (Kohli) is the best batsman I’ve ever seen. His feistiness and real aggression towards the opposition has been good (in the past), especially when he was not captain…But I think it’s not good for them anymore. He’s really putting some pressure on (his players). You can read pressure all over Ravi Ashwin’s face. I think there are massive cracks showing in (Kohli).”
