IPL 2013: MI Vs RCB 37th Match, Apr 27, 2013
Furious after being booed by the crowd in Mumbai, Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Virat Kohli said IPL fans tend to forget that he competes for India as well and their jeering can end up creating “hatred among the players”.
Virat Kohli was booed by fans at the Wankhede Stadium after a controversial run-out incident during RCB’s match against the Mumbai Indians in Mumbai on Saturday night.
Virat Kohli was jeered several times after he appealed for a run-out involving Mumbai Indians batsman Ambati Rayudu, who was dismissed in a bizarre manner.
Rayudu seemed to have grounded his bat before it went in the air when he collided with bowler Vinay Kumar. It was at this time that a direct hit from Kohli hit the stumps.
The visitors asked for the third umpire’s decision, which went in their favour. This agitated the crowd and they booed Kohli calling him a “cheat”.
