India v Australia: Aussie media slams 'classless' Virat Kohli

Australian media labelled Indian skipper Virat Kohli "classless" and childish on Wednesday after his provocative comments at the end of a hard-fought but incendiary Test series.

Newspapers laid into the winning captain for saying he no longer counted the Australian players as friends, and they also took umbrage at India's apparent snub when invited to join the tourists for a beer.

Kohli said he would not think of the Australians as friends "ever again" after India sealed a 2-1 victory in a pulsating series marked by flare-ups between the world's number one and two teams.

"Virat Kohli had to shake hands and move on after series win but he acted like a child," read a headline in Sydney's Daily Telegraph, which also called Kohli an "egomaniac".

Kohli's behaviour was compared to that of his opposite number Steve Smith, who apologised for calling Murali Vijay a "f***ing cheat" after he claimed a catch when the ball had touched the ground.

"All Virat Kohli had to do was say sorry. Steve Smith did," wrote Herald Sun journalist Russell Gould.
