In an eventful match yesterday between India and Australia, India defeated the Kangaroos by 36 runs and a wave of pride ran through the country. But there’s another reason for us to be proud and that is our captain who has proved that he is a perfect gentleman.

During the match, there was a point where Australian player Steve Smith was fielding near the boundary and Virat Kohli was batting. He heard the Indian fans booeing Smith by calling him a cheater. Kohli immediately requested them not to do that and to just cheer instead.

He also apologized to Smith later on behalf of the crowd.

For those of you wondering why the slurs were used, it was because of the ball tampering case that the Australian team was clouded by a while ago.

Twitter was all pride and praises for Mr. Kohli!

Our dashing captain proved that he had the true sportsman spirit; not only did he stand up for a fellow cricketer, but he got overjoyed when Dhoni smashed a beautiful six on Mitchell Starc’s bowling. The video of his reaction went viral and unke andar ka dilli bahar aa hi gaya!

Well, we hope India keeps defeating its opponents and provides us with an extra batch of entertaining moments like these! And what can we say about our very able captain –his gestures say it all!
