Virat Kohli Faces Backlash For Chewing Gum During National Anthem Ahead of 3rd ODI vs South Africa; Video Goes VIRAL
Virat Kohli Chewing Gum Controversy: Kohli was spotted chewing gum while the national anthem was being played ahead of the game.
Cape Town: During the third and final ODI at Newlands on Sunday, ex-India skipper Virat Kohli courted controversy and faced backlash on social space. Kohli, who resigned as the Test captain following India’s series loss to South Africa, was spotted chewing gum while the national anthem was being played ahead of the game. Once fans spotted this on social space, they came down heavily on Kohli.
The problem is that Kohli is looked up to by young aspiring cricketers and is expected to set the right example. This act was surely not the right example.

Kohli has been under the pump recently and things went from bad to worse when India lost the Test series. He realised he had to step down or else he could risk being sacked like he was in the ODI format.
Meanwhile, KL Rahul-led India is looking to avoid an embarrassing whitewash in the ODI series. After asking the hosts to bat first, Quinton De Kock hit a brilliant century. South Africa was bundled out by India for 287.
