Farokh Engineer Slammed Those Who Were Trolling Virat Kohli Over His Paternity Leave: The debate around Indian skipper Virat Kohli’s decision to be there with his wife during the birth of his and Bollywood actor and wife Anushka Sharma’s first child has become the talk of the town. Several cricketers and experts came out and slammed Virat for his decision. There are many who are trolling him left, right, and center on social media.
Recently, former Indian cricketer Farokh Engineer has expressed his disappointment at Virat being trolled for his decision. He disagrees with the trolling that Kohli has been receiving as he made a personal decision to be with his wife, which is nothing wrong. He said:
“I disagree with that (trolling Virat Kohli). Why would you troll someone? He has made a personal decision to be with his wife to have the first child, which is not too unfair to ask for. It’s just like South America, they are very passionate about their football (so are we about cricket). If we lose abroad or anywhere, our house is on fire the next day. But, the very next day, as soon as you do well, you’ll be top of the tree. You’re God. This is how passionate we are. You can’t help it,”
Furthermore, Farokh also said that if it were him, he would have chosen the team, especially after suffering a crushing defeat in the first Test. At the same time, he also refused to blame Virat Kohli for putting his family first. He said:
“But personally, I would have rather played for India especially with India not having done so well in the first match. My thought would have been for my country. But, I don’t blame Virat Kohli for being with his family. This is the modern trend. I think it’s just an age difference,”
