He termed him “the most foul-mouthed individual” before stating that the Delhi lad had hurled a barrage of expletives his way back in 2012.

Compton compared Kohli’s dramatics with those of Joe Root, Sachin Tendulkar, and Kane Williamson, who are usually calm, composed, and pole opposite in expressiveness than Kohli.

“Isn’t Kohli the most foul mouthed individual. I’ll Never forget the barrage of abuse I received in 2012 when the swearing stunned me to the point that he did himself a serious disservice. It highlights what a level headed and grounded man Root, Tendulkar, Williamson et al are,” Compton had tweeted.
