Twitter Reacts To Nick Compton Remark About Indian Captain Virat Kohli

Former English cricketer, Nick Compton, drew severe flak from fellow Indian cricket fans after he called Indian captain, Virat Kohli, the most foul-mouthed cricketer.

After India’s historic win at Lord’s, Kohli rained down upon the English cricketers, owing to a previous heated exchange between Bumrah and the other English cricketers. This didn’t sit well with Compton, and he chose to foul-mouth Kohli.

His exact words about Kohli were, “Isn’t Kohli the most foul-mouthed individual. I’ll never forget the barrage of abuse I received in 2012 when the swearing stunned me to the point that he did himself a serious disservice. It highlights what a level-headed and grounded men Root, Tendulkar, Williamson et al. are.”

This tweet happened on August 18th but the South African born English cricketer deleted the tweet shortly after it started garnering severe backlash already.

However, it was already too late for the tweet to be taken down, and Indian fans rushed to the aid of their skipper with fabulous responses that will stoke the morale of Kohli for the upcoming contests.

India was at the receiving end of even more austere sledges that would involve Flintoff trying to get under the skin of Yuvraj Singh, Stuart Broad trying to mess around with Sourav Ganguly and the former Indian captain was also taunted by Matthew Hoggard and Flintoff on different occasions.

Indians fans were quick to point out that why did Compton not raise his voice when Jadeja got sledged by Jimmy Anderson.  A few of them also pointed out the incident between Bumrah and the other English players that was followed by a boundary from Bumrah.

Sledges are an integral part of the game, as we have seen how Australia used to make life a living hell for the batters in the middle. These are just mind games that one plays with the other in an attempt to leave him a wee bit unsettled.

We will take a quick look at a few tweets that supported the Indian skipper in his act of aggression against England.
