Mumbai, November 16 (Language) When the entire cricket world is praising Virat Kohli’s 50th century in ODI cricket, former Australian bowler Simon O’Donnell praised the star Indian batsman who was suffering from cramps during the World Cup semi-final. The New Zealand team has been severely criticized for helping.
In this match played on Wednesday, Kohli had scored 117 runs on 113 balls despite leg cramps. When Kohli was suffering from cramps, some New Zealand players came to help him, on which O’Donnell has objected. India won this match by 70 runs and made it to the finals.
“I have reservations about a few things during last night’s semi-final,” O’Donnell told SEN Radio. When Virat Kohli was suffering from cramps and the Indian team was moving towards scoring 400 runs, some New Zealand players came to help him.
He said, “When Virat Kohli was suffering from cramps, why did you reach out to help him?” Whereas his team was then moving towards scoring 400 runs. In a match like the World Cup semi-finals, sportsmanship should be shown within the rules. Virat Kohli was harming your country and you were coming forward to help him.
This Australian cricketer said, “Don’t worry about anything.” When Virat Kohli was suffering from cramps, you should not have gone within 20 meters of him under any circumstances.
