What Made Michael Vaughan Furious?
Michael Vaughan is an English Cricket Commentator and a former cricketer who has experience of playing all form of games. He served as England captain for the test team from 2003 to 2008, the one-day international team from 2003–2007, and was the first Twenty20 England captain from 2005–2007.
Why he has Demanded to Suspend Virat Kohli?
In test series of India vs South Africa which was being held in Cape Town Kohli was heard making disrespectful comments regarding umpiring and technology on Da 3 of the series. He could be heard over stump mic.
The 33-year-old Kohli’s burst was over opposition skipper Dean Elgar getting a reprieve due to a contentious DRS decision. Elgar was batting on 22 as R Ashwin hit his pads with a tossed up delivery, which looked plumb to naked eyes. But ball-tracking showed the delivery gaining some bounce and going above the stumps, leaving the Indian camp including skipper Kohli puzzled over the technology.
Kohli along with others expressed their anger over the matter. He said on the stumps; “Focus on your team as well when they shine the ball eh, not just the opposition. Trying to catch people all the time.” Rahul and Ashwin also expressed similar reactions. “It’s the whole country against 11 guys,” said KL Rahul, while Ashwin slammed the broadcaster: “You should find better ways to win, SuperSport.”
Many of the former cricketers including Michael didn’t like this. They said that such moments come but one should have control over whatever he says because this is what sportsmanship is all about. Michael Vaughan said; “You can’t act like that whether you’re frustrated or not. We all have our moments on the field where we think something is going against you. You absolutely have the right to feel frustrated as you’re a human being. But when you act like that as a captain and a leader of our game, the ICC have to step in. They can’t allow that to happen. He needs to be fined.. potentially be suspended,”
However, this is not for the first time that Virat Kohli has been seen displaying such immature behavior and the world has now witnessed another of his on-field outbursts. Almost all of the fellow cricketers felt agitated.
