After all the calling of names, Amitabh Bachchan has nose dived into the entire snowballing saga. Yesterday, the Australian media touted Virat Kohli to Donald Trump. This series is already being identified as the most toxic between the two nation ever. Virat Kohli has been animating at press conferences, has sledged, mocked, got mocked, everything has happened for the Indian skipper but the runs off his bat. This is surprising because that usually is not the case with him. He has been in a purple patch ever since he made it to the national side.

It is great to see the biggest star in India taking keen interest in sports, and that too, in minute details.
So, here is what the Australian media said about Virat Kohli, “Virat Kohli has become the Donald Trump of world sport. Just like President Trump, Kohli decided to blame the media as a means of trying to hide the egg smeared right across his face.”
Despite having a stringent schedule, Mr Bachchan managed to tweet on this issue. Bad blood is brewing and brewing fast. Even injured Mitchell Starc from Australia has promised to break Ravichandran Ashwin’s head in the next series. What has become of this gentleman game (sigh)?
Amitabh Bachchan is the first person from Bollywood to actually lambast the Australian media for their non-stop racial abuse. This is not the first time it has happened and by the looks of it, not the last either.
