In an unusual incident, star batter Virat Kohli came out in young pacer Kamlesh Nagarkoti’s defence after he was given a hard time by the Indian crowd at the Uptonsteel Cricket Ground for the ongoing tour game between India and Leicestershire.
On the second day of the game, a fan was continuously asking Nagarkoti to click a picture with him, while the player was fielding as a substitute. However, Kohli was not happy with the behaviour of the fan. The aggressive player was quick to confront him.
“I’ve been continuously asking for a photo. I came here after taking the day off from my office. So, I have been calling Nagarkoti to click a photo with me at least,” the fan can be heard saying with loud voice.
The nagging fan went on disturbing the young cricketer continuously. It was so irritating that Kohli came to the rescue of Nagarkoti by confronting the fan.
“He is here to play the match and not to click photos,” Kohli replied from the pavillion.
Notably, Team India took an 82-run lead over Leicestershire heading into day three.
