I think he needs to remember Dhoni's words for him: First be a good cricketer, then a good human being/role model. He's already a good batsman, but he's falling behind being a good human being/role model piece, which is equally important in professional success. Learn from Sachin, Dhoni, Federer, Nadal....

What you sow is what you reap. You improve your attitude on & off the field, same crowd will take u in better spirit. And on top, this press conference will also do no good. You should have handled it politically. Just a single line apology would have sufficed, saying it was unintentional. You are instead teaching everyone rules. We all know the rules, that's why it is called sports spirit, because if you leave it to umpire of course it is out. It is as if you are demanding respect. Earn it man!!! Same episode, same venue, different captain. I am sure crowd would have reacted different. They being indifferent to you not the run out decision. We all are a big fan of your talent, but your character, its a bit unfortunate. Don't be in denial, if there are so many negative responses, there has to be something which you are doing, which is not going well.

I'm a fan of Kohli too. He is in a very good position at the moment in the national team. I dont like him to lose that. In India people's opinion can change anything. So Virat should ignore such things and concentrate only on the game.
