The Indian cricketer Virat Kohli may have left the captaincy of team India but he is certainly a leader who leaves no chance of supporting his teammates especially the youngsters. Recently, a video went viral on the Internet and social media in which Virat Kohli was seen slamming a spectator who was troubling Kamlesh Nagarkoti, the Indian cricketer who was fielding near the boundary ropes.
The spectator was heckling Kamlesh Nagarkoti because he wanted to click photos with him but Kamlesh refused which irritated the Indian spectator and he started insulting him. Virat Kohli got angered with this behaviour of the spectator; he stood up for Kamlesh and asked the spectator whether he came to play cricket in England or to click pics. Even after this, the spectator kept on arguing and tried to justify his actions, saying that he was continuously asking Kamlesh for a photo. He further added that as he came here after taking an off from the office so at least he should get a pic.
Here is the video:

The incident took place on the third day of the warm-up match which was played between India and Leicestershire and Virat Kohli scored 33 runs in the first innings. He was not happy with the decision of the umpire who gave him lbw out. Kamlesh Nagarkoti is travelling with the team as a net bowler and in the warm-up match, he was fielding as a substitute.
The Indian team is in England for playing the fifth rescheduled test match, 3 T20Is and the same number of ODIs. This is the first overseas trip of Rohit Sharma as an official skipper of the Indian team but as per the latest reports, he has tested COVID-19 positive.
Let’s hope that India wins the series by attaining victory in the fifth and final test match.
