Sore Loser? Another Incident Proves Kohli Didn’t Deserve Spirit of Cricket Award [Video]

New Zealand have defeated India in the second Test to complete a 2-0 clean-sweep at home. This is India’s first series defeat in the ICC Test Championship and it looks like the captain, Virat Kohli, has had a hard time in the field.

Talking at the post-series press conference, Virat Kohli, who was recently replaced as the number 1 Test batsman in the world, couldn’t handle a relatively simple question by one of the reporters.

The Indian captain was awarded the Spirit of Cricket Award last year for his gesture for Steven Smith during the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. The decision was heavily criticized by the cricket lovers, who wanted Kane Williamson to have the award for his conduct at the mega event despite losing the all-important final on boundary count and an incorrect decision in the last over.
