Venkatesh Prasad shuts Virat kohli critics with unselfish heartfelt post

Venkatesh Prasad came out in support of Virat Kohli after there were some strong criticism over him putting personal landmark over team first

While some experts and fans were in awe of Virat Kohli‘s sublime hundred against South Africa, which also equaled Sachin Tendulkar’s ODI centuries record, others felt Kohli slowed down a bit, sensing he is nearing a hundred. ‘Selfish’ word was trending all over Twitter and continued to trend even the next day as Kohli’s hundred was not liked by a few of fans. However, Venkatesh Prasad did not hold back his emotions and posted a heartfelt Tweet on social media stating Kohli is not selfish.

Kohli’s match-winning knock enabled India to defeat South Africa by a huge margin of 242 runs and remain unbeaten in the tournament. Parsad said

“Hearing funny arguments about Virat Kohli being Selfish and obsessed with personal milestones.
Yes, Kohli is selfish, selfish enough to follow the dream of a billion people, selfish enough to strive for excellence even after achieving so much, selfish enough to set new benchmarks, selfish enough to ensure his team wins. Yes, Kohli is selfish.”

Speaking of Kohli, he is India’s highest run scorer in the World Cup scoring 523 runs in seven games. He also has scored two hundreds in WC so far against Bangladesh and South Africa. However, in both centuries, he slowed down a bit, and some of the fans and experts did not like the fact that Kohli put century above the team.


But that is not the case, as Kohli kept ticking the scoreboard and allowed the other batters to play aggressively upfront. Also, Kohli slowing down nearing 100 did not have any effect on India’s net run rate or the context of the game.

Is century more important than 100?

The debate of whether the century is important is a never-ending one, as some feel the team should always come first irrespective of win or not. While some feel it is no harm as far as team is winning. In Kohli’s case team is winning, and that’s all that matters.
