Ind vs SA: Kohli brutally trolled for ‘chewing gum’ during national anthem
New Delhi: Former Indian skipper Virat Kohli on Sunday courted controversy and faced backlash on social media for allegedly ‘chewing a gum’ while the country’s national anthem was being played before the start of the third ODI match between India and South Africa in Cape Town.
Both the teams were out on the field before the start of the third ODI to sing the national anthems. As India’s national anthem began, the camera was focused on Virat. He was seen chewing the gum and singing in between.
This act of Virat Kohli was recorded by Indian fans and they have not received it well. Kohli was roasted on the social media website for ‘disrespecting’ the national anthem.
“Virat Kohli busy chewing something while the National Anthem is playing. Ambassador of the nation. @BCCI,” wrote one fan on Twitter with a video.
