Virat Kohli stood up for actor Anushka Sharma who he had been dating until last month. Their break up was spectaculated to be driven by Kohli’s erratic cricket performance. But an enthralling innings against Australia on Sunday in the ongoing T20 World Cup #WCT20 proved to his fans and critics alike that Kohli was a player par excellence. Kohli used the opportunity to speak up for Anushka. He tweeted and put up a post on instagram. [Picture Credit: DNA India]

“Shame on those people who have been having a go at anushka for the longest time and connecting every negative thing to her. Shame on those people calling themselves educated. Shame on blaming and making fun of her when she has no control over what i do with my sport. If anything she has only motivated and given me more positivity. This was long time coming. Shame on these people that hide and take a dig. And i dont need any respect for this post. Have some compassion and respect her. Think of how your sister or girlfriend or wife would feel if someone trolled them and very conveniently rubbished them in public. #nocompassion#nocommonsense”
