Indian skipper Virat Kohli has been compared to US President Donald Trump by an Australian Daily.
An article from the Australian daily ‘The Daily Telegraph‘reads: “Virat Kohli has become the Donald Trump of world sport.”
The Indian captain is a law unto himself with no one – not even the ICC or his own board – holding him accountable for his continual perpetuation of fake news.

Just like President Trump, Kohli decided to blame the media as a means of trying to hide the egg smeared right across his face.”Like former Sri Lankan captain Arjuna Ranatunga, Kohli relies on a flagrant disrespect of his opponents and the game to fuel himself and his team. Soft cricketing administrators have given rise to a bat- wielding Trump.”
The article goes on to state that while the host broadcaster Star Sports explained the optical illusion that led to claims that Smith mocked Virat Kohli’s shoulder injury and later even apologised for it, Kohli didn’t budge and went on to give a flagrant send-off to Warner after he was castled by Ravindra Jadeja on day four.

In his post-match press conference, Kohli also mentioned that a few Australian players took physio Patrick Farhat’s name and the Indian captain had no clue why. The article goes on to state that his statements lack any concrete evidence and that Australia’s captain and vice-captain both had no idea what Kohli was on about.

While the article does state that having a bad series isn’t a crime, it goes on to state that Kohli has proven that the spirit of cricket if “officially dead”. It also goes on to say that Kohli is untouchable, refuses to apologize or even tow the line set by BCCI.
