World Cup: Virat Kohli’s gesture towards Steve Smith terrific, says Sunil Gavaskar

first_imgSunil Gavaskar lauded Virat Kohli after the India captain stopped a section of The Oval crowd from booing Australia batsman Steve Smith on Sunday. India went on to beat Australia by 36 runs in a high-scoring World Cup 2019 match but Kohli’s gesture won hearts across the cricket fraternity.Steve Smith along with David Warner had been banned for a year for their role in the ball-tampering scandal in Cape Town in 2018. In England, both Smith and Warner have faced a tough time from crowds. On Sunday, while Smith was fielding near the boundary, a few fans booed and jeered at him.Virat Kohli, who was batting at that moment, asked the crowd to stop the booing and instead applaud Steve Smith.Like Darren Lehmann, the former Australia coach, Sunil Gavaskar felt it was fine act of sportsmanship by Virat Kohli.”The incident was bang in the middle of the match. The match situation was such that he (Kohli) could have been forgiven for thinking of the bigger picture. Smith personally did not do anything. He said he was unaware of what had happened and had to face the consequences. That was terrific from Virat. That’s what sportsman’s spirit is all about,” Gavaskar told India Today.Speaking to the media after the match, Virat Kohli said he even apologised to Steve Smith on behalf of the crowd.”Just because there’s so many Indian fans here, I just didn’t want them to set a bad example, to be honest, because he didn’t do anything to be booed in my opinion.advertisement”He’s just playing cricket. He was just standing there, and I felt bad because if I was in a position where something had happened with me and I had apologised, I accepted it and I came back and still I would get booed, I wouldn’t like it, either.”So I just felt for him, and I told him, I’m sorry on behalf of the crowd because I’ve seen that happen in a few earlier games, as well, and in my opinion that’s not acceptable,” Kohli said.Also Read | World T20 final vs Sri Lanka in 2014 worst day of my career: Yuvraj SinghAlso Read | Don’t want to say anything about Yo-Yo tests but my time will come: Yuvraj Singhlast_img read more

Lack of knowledge and empathy survey finds we could brush up on

first_imgRSA’s Rohini Mukherji says with kids heading back to school next week, the survey is meant to help turn the heat down for potential conflicts and accidents.“We all just need to do our bit to be educated, to know the rules, and also show some courtesy and empathy to the others sharing our roads.”Mukherji suggests knowing when to yield to others and showing understanding toward other road-users plays a powerful role in stopping in what she calls that gut reaction of rage.“It’s hard when you’re a cyclist, a pedestrian or a driver and it seems that everyone else is the party at fault. The reality is that we can all look inward. While certainly cars have historically had the largest share of the road, and shoulder a lot of that responsibility around education, it is about everybody staying safe.”The survey also finds 57 per cent of cyclists and 44 per cent of pedestrians believe their cities should invest in driver education.“It’s not just about technology, but also about education and really showing that empathy,” Mukherji adds. “Because that is really going to be the first step in ceasing the war on our roads, if you will.” VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – September traffic is just around the corner. Are you ready for it?A survey suggests many drivers, pedestrians and cyclists could brush up on their knowledge of the rules of the road. It also finds Canadian politeness ends at street level.When you add that abrasiveness to an apparent lack of knowledge among some road-users, its a bad combination.The survey for RSA Canada — an insurance provider — finds 50 per cent of pedestrians don’t always know when cyclists have the right of way. It also suggests thirty-three per cent of cyclists have seen an unfamiliar road sign recently. Are roads more dangerous than they were 10 years ago?
