Kohli is Donald Trump of world sport: Aussie media

Australian media today dubbed India captain Virat Kohli as Donald Trump of world sport and accused him of spreading fake news regarding their players.

An article in the 'Daily Telegraph' not only criticised Kohli for his unsubstantiated claims but also expressed disappointment that neither the BCCI nor the ICC has taken any action against him.

"VIRAT Kohli has become the Donald Trump of world sport," read the article.

"Just like President Trump, Kohli decided to blame the media as a means of trying to hide the egg smeared right across his face."

"The Indian captain is a law unto himself with no one not even the ICC or his own board holding him accountable for his continual perpetuation of fake news."

The ongoing series had seen a lot of off field fireworks with Kohli saying Steve Smith repeatedly took help from his dressing room while taking DRS decisions.

Smith had admitted one such incident, blaming brain fade for that, but refused to accept he did it more than once.

During the third Test Kohli had celebrated David Warner's dismissal by clutching his shoulder, apparently retaliating Smith mocking his shoulder injury.
