New Delhi : The Indian captain, Virat Kohli's grit is tough to break when he comes out to bat. One of the world's current best batsman, the 30 year old has often carried the burden of his team and led them to victories. However, the Indian skipper received an unexpected welcome from the spectators as he stepped out to bat during the Sydney Test. He was booed for the second time in the series by a section of fans. The first such incident came during the first Test at Adelaide. But this time around, Cricket Australia CEO Kevin Roberts made a strong remark on the matter and said he didn't likes seeing this. He also urged fans to show respect to the visitors and give them the best possible experience.

"I don't like seeing that," Roberts was quoted as saying by foxsports.com.au.

"I would urge our fans to support the game with honour.

"The game is bigger than all of us, we need to respect our visitors, give them the best possible experience of visiting our country, and then hopefully beat them on the field," he added.

During the third day of the first Test earlier, when Kohli was booed  former Australian skipper Ricky Ponting had said that the Indian skipper must have faced worse than this in his career.

The Indian batsman has scored a century and half-century in the ongoing Test series. He scored 23 runs during the first innings of the Sydney Test before getting dismissed by pacer Josh Hazlewood.
