Naseeruddin Shah joined in the criticism of Virat Kohli's behaviour during the on-going Cricket match against Australia. Actually, not everyone is critical. Times Now News noted that Dav Whatmore, a former Australian cricketer, feels that the behaviour of Kohli's being blown out of proportion. Mainly, this comes from the Australian media. The match in Perth and the coverage of Kholi having a "banter" with the Australian wicketkeeper Tim Paine, was perfectly fine and did not go over the limit, according to him. But now, some Indian cricket fans are angry that Naseeruddin Shah, a film person, and not an international athlete, joined in to put him down him. Over on Twitter, there was some harsh criticism as fans slammed him back.

One commenter even said they think he's just trying to use Virat's "name and fame" to get media attention. Here are five of the reactions to him on Twitter.
