‘Khoon Ke Aansu…’: Journo Who Called Rohit ‘Bhagoda’ Also Slammed Kohli For His Poor Form

Not just Rohit Sharma, the senior sports journalist who called the Indian captain ‘bhagoda’ also passed similar remarks about Virat Kohli. 

After the clipping of the journalist’s disgraceful comments about Rohit went viral on social media, it left fans fuming and they started trolling him, left, right and centre. Now, a new clipping has emerged online where the journo could be seen taking a swipe at Kohli in a similar derogatory manner. 

Besides Rohit, Kohli is another Indian batter who has been going through a lean patch at the moment. Slamming Kohli’s poor form, the journo argued that the reason why the 33-year-old is going through a horrible run since the last couple of years is because he started taking cricket for granted. 

Virat Kohli ke khoon ke aansu nikal rahe hai. Runs nahi nikal rahe hai uske kyuki cricket se bada ho gaya tha vo (Virat Kohli is in complete shambles at the moment. He can’t score runs, why because he had become bigger than the game),” the journalist can be heard saying in the viral video. 

The journo also stated that the former India captain was under the impression that he was so talented that he could score runs even with his eyes closed. Kohli’s ego had grown so much that he started considering himself bigger than the game of cricket. 

Kohli believed that he could rest and play depending on his mood and would still score runs with great ease. But in the last couple of two and a half years, he has gotten a huge reality check. 

While we respect the journo’s right to question a player’s game, his choice of words wasn’t appropriate. There were far better ways to convey the exact same sentiments. 

Just like everyone else, a journalist is also entitled to his opinions, but he must not forget the responsibilities that come with that tag. People expect journalists to support their opinions with some sort of rationale and it would have been better had he presented some of that.
