Lovely gesture by Virat, says Smith

London, June 17: Steve Smith has appreciated Virat Kohli’s “lovely gesture” after the Indian skipper asked fans to stop jeering the former Australian skipper during their World Cup encounter on June 9.
Back after serving a one-year suspension for the infamous ball-tampering scandal in South Africa, Smith, despite a string of impressive performances, has been getting hostile reception at every English ground at the marquee event.
“It was a lovely gesture by Virat,” Smith told reporters after Australia’s victory to Sri Lanka. (PTI)
