Former India National Cricket Team captain Virat Kohli was furious at a few spectators after they pestered young pacer Kamlesh Nagarkoti for a photo during the four-day warm-up match between Indians and Leicestershire.
The warm-up match between Rohit Sharma-led Indians and Sam Evans-led Leicestershire began on June 23 at the Grace Road, Leicester.
Meanwhile, young pace bowler Nagarkoti is not part of India’s squad for the one-off Test against England and he is one of India’s net bowlers for the tour.
On Day 2 of the warm-up match between Indians and Leicestershire, few spectators gave Nagarkoti a hard time as they kept asking him for a picture continuously.
Kohli saw this and he was furious at the behaviour of the spectators and he came out on the balcony to defend Nagarkoti. When Kohli confronted the spectators, a fan told him that they just want a picture with the pacer, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, but the cricketer didn’t respond to multiple requests made to him.
“Kabse bula rha hoon, photo he nahi khicha raha. Mai meri job choddh ke yaha aaya hu. Kam se kam photo to khichwana chahie. Nagarkoti ko bula raha hoon (Translation: “I’ve been continuously asking for a photo. I came here after taking the day off from my office. So, I’ve been calling Nagarkoti to click a photo with me at least)” the fan can be heard as saying in Hindi after Kohli confronted him.
Former India captain Kohli responded to the fan by saying that the pacer is on the ground to play the match and not to click pictures.
“Match khelne aaya hai ya photo khichwane aaya hai (Translation: He is here to play the match, and not to click photos),” Kohli replied from the Pavillion.
