That Nick Compton absolutely dislikes Virat Kohli is not a secret anymore. What is baffling about Compton’s attitude towards Kohli is that he did not play against the India star for long. Compton played against India and Kohli only once when he toured the subcontinent in 2012. Well, only the former England opener could answer just why he hates Kohli so much.
Last year, he had sensationally abused Kohli on Twitter after the fans took an aim at him for undermining Kohli’s consistency. One of the fans had abused Compton and he had sensationally said that he thinks the same about Kohli.

In reply to the fan’s tweet who translated the Hindi slang, Nick Compton had written: “I know my favorite word it’s what i think of Kohli ?”. He had later deleted the tweet. But it did not change Compton’s mindset as he has taken another shot at Kohli. And just like the last time, Compton’s latest tirade against Kohli looks needless.
Nick Compton has criticised Kohli for his gesture towards Steve Smith during the clash between India and Australia in the World Cup. Kohli gestured to supporters at The Oval to clap Smith after the Australian received a hostile reception from the fans in reaction to the ball-tampering scandal in March 2018. Smith was jeered while fielding on the boundary until Kohli, who was batting at the time, stepped in.
The whole world including cricketers from England are lauding Kohli for the brilliant gesture. However, Nick Compton was not at all impressed with Kohli’s decision to stop the fans from what they were doing. He took to Twitter to post a video, speaking on the issue while writing:
“I don’t think Virat Kohli had any right to tell fans to stop booing at Warner and Smith but rather clap them.. found it rather condescending if truth be told! “
