Veteran Bollywood star Naseeruddin Shah yesterday claimed Indian skipper Virat Kohli is the world's worst behaved player.

The comment came after Kohli and his Australian counterpart Tim Paine engaged in a verbal spat on Day Four of the Test at Perth yesterday. Shah criticised Virat on Facebook for his behaviour. "Virat K is not only the world's best batsman, but also the world's worst-behaved player. His cricketing brilliance pales beside his arrogance and bad manners. And I have no intention of leaving the country by the way," the post read.

Meanwhile, cricketer-turned-commentator Sanjay Manjrekar too slammed Kohli for his onfield behaviour during a talk show. The former India batsman, said: "...that last gesture, Virat Kohli coming in the way of Tim Paine, that was completely uncalled for.

Actually, what if Kohli was not a such a great player getting all the runs that he does — some of his antics and behaviour on the field would have created quite a bit of stir and got lot more criticism. It's just that he is such a champion batsman, people are sort of accepting that."
