“I am tired of English media talking crap about Virat,” Tino Best had a go at British journalist who was taking a dig at Kohli

Tino Best played 25 test matches, 26 ODIs and 6 T20 internationals for West Indies

The former West Indies fast bowler Tino Best is not happy with the way the English media has been talking and writing about the on-field behavior of Virat Kohli in the Edgbaston test match which India lost.

Not only the English fans, but the English pundits also criticized Virat heavily for sledding Jonny Bairstow on the third day of the game when Bairstow was not comfortable at the crease against the Indian fast bowlers.

Virat Kohli, however, continued with his aggression despite the criticism in the second innings. When the England opener Alex Lees was run out and England lost their third wicket within two overs in the latter stages of day 4, Virat celebrated with animated expressions.


One of the famous English journalists, George Dobell, shared a picture of Virat Kohli when he was celebrating the wicket of Alex Lees and Virat, at the time the picture was taken, was running right in the middle of the pitch, probably unintentionally and in the heat of the moment.

Tino Best was a fiesty cricketer during his time himself

Dobell took a bit of a dig at Virat by captioning the picture “Interesting place to celebrate the wicket of Alex Lees”. Tino Best, who was a very fiesty cricketer during his time himself, didn’t like this unnecessary dig at Virat by an English journalist.

Best got back at Dobell saying that he has noticed whenever a non-English cricketer tries to be a bit bold in England and tries to challenge the English on their own turf, the English people don’t quite like it and he is now fed up of English media talking “crap” about Virat all the time.



Dobell, in response to Best’s tweet, however, justified himself and said that he didn’t mean it in the way Best thought he did.

Tino Best has had his fair share of confrontations with English cricketers in the past himself. One of his confrontations with Andrew Flintoff is still etched on the minds of English fans.



I write a bit on cricket and I am more interested in technical and tactical side of the game, rather than bravado.
