Virat Kohli has always been a highly emotional player on the field, and he is not afraid to express himself, particularly after taking a significant wicket. MS Dhoni was removed by Josh Hazlewood, who bowled the ball straight to mid-wicket, igniting Virat Kohli’s confidence ahead of his match against the Chennai Super Kings.
After losing their previous three matches, the Royal Challengers Bangalore defeated the Chennai Super Kings by a margin of 13 runs. The Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) were allowed to bat first and scored a total of 173/8 courtesy to the 42 runs scored by Mahipal Lomror. When it came to achieving their objectives, the RCB took wickets at regular intervals.
MS Dhoni was a crucial wicket for the Royal Challengers Bangalore, as it prevented him from completing the team. Josh Hazlewood was on the mound for the twentieth over of the game. Immediately after the start, he delivered a short delivery, which Dhoni attempted to draw towards deep mid-wicket. Dhoni mistimed the hit, and Rajat Patidar made a simple catch to keep the game alive.
Virat Kohli demonstrated his fervour on the field once more, and he appeared to be pumped up following the crucial wicket of CSK skipper Virat Kohli. One user wrote “Did he just yell at MSD?”

As a Virat Kohli fan, this behaviour is unexpected from him. He could've celebrated the wicket by not using this foul language. On the field, behaviour matters in the game of cricket. pic.twitter.com/Ulwi1AisvS

Fans didn’t like this reaction of Virat Kohli very much considering the stature of Dhoni as a player. He needs to be respected and treated with a certain level of dignity which according to the fans Virat didn’t do. Virat also has been criticised earlier by many ex players that his behaviour on the field is questionable, however fans support him that it is his passion towards the game that makes him react in such a manner.
Kohli’s form has also been questioned in the recent time, because he hasn’t made very significant contributions with the bat.
