Glenn Maxwell mocks Virat Kohli, makes fun of his injury

India vs Australia Glenn Maxwell mocks Virat Kohli, makes fun of his injury

During the Bangalore Test, Kohli had stopped just short of labelling Smith a "cheat" after the Australian skipper was caught looking up to the dressing room for help for a DRS call after being caught lbw.

It's one thing to be aggressive and try to get under your rivals' skin but quite another to mock an injured opponent.

Ranchi: India speedster Umesh Yadav on Friday said Virat Kohli is "fit to play", assuaging fears over the injured captain's participation in the remainder of the crucial third cricket Test against Australia here.

It was followed by Glenn Maxwell mimicking Kohli's injury at the boundary ropes. "Glenn Maxwell and Steve Smith, what example are they setting to their team?"

Maxwell and Kohli are good friends off the field but his antics may well see some repercussions when he comes out to bat in the second innings, especially after the heat between the two teams since the Bengaluru Test. "This is defying the spirit of the game". "That's very disappointing. You can sledge ... it's fine, but not mocking someone who is injured, in pain", Laxman said at tea on Saturday.

"You play the game a hard way but the spirit of the game should be there". The hand on his shoulder was that of a teammate celebrating the key wicket.

"The ultra edge looked like it lit up before it hit the bat", Brett Lee said on Star Sports. KL Rahul and Murali Vijay put on contrasting displays with the bat, both great in their own right, to blunt the Australia attack and give the side a near-perfect start. Whatever they are doing, we take it as a sporting thing. He seemed to remind everyone of the injury suffered by Kohli, who seems to be Australia's public enemy No 1.

"I know he came out and clapped".

"It's a really cut-throat series for everyone and it's first versus second, there's a lot of pressure on him at the moment".

"I don't think it was directed at anything, I just think when you lose your two reviews it's a bit of a relief to the opposition and he probably just showed that".
