Virat Kohli Mocked By Pakistan Fan After Champions Trophy Final Defeat
The Pakistani fan was rather vocal, taunting Kohli 'akad toot gai hai teri'.
- India lost the ICC Champions Trophy final by 180 runs
- India won the Champions Trophy title in 2013
- Hardik Pandya scored 76 off 43 balls
Indian captain Virat Kohli stokes extreme passion among cricket fans across the globe. His brand of cricket relies on no half-measures, resulting in him polarizing opinion of the cricketing community. While Kohli believes he is supremely confident of his skills as a cricketer, some of his detractors describe him as 'arrogant'. An example of this was witnessed after India's Champions Trophy final loss to Pakistan. As the Indian team made its way back to the dressing room after the match, a Pakistani fan mocked the Indian captain.
"Akad toot gai hai teri Kohli saari haan, akad toot gai hai," he said as Kohli went past him.
Kohli, who in the past has confronted fans, did not react and went straight to the dressing room.
Shami stopped in his tracks, turned back and moved towards the fan to confront him. However, former Indian captain MS Dhoni stepped in to diffuse the situation and calm Shami down.
An inspired Pakistan hammered a blundering India by 180 runs to lift the ICC Champions Trophy, riding on a scintillating hundred from rookie opener Fakhar Zaman and a sensational bowling spell from Mohammad Amir. This is Pakistan's first ICC title triumph since their 2009 World Twenty20 win.
