Virat Kohli has been a constant talk of the town in the ongoing Test series between India and Australia. Apart from his marvellous exploits with the willow, the Indian captain has grabbed the headlines for his antics on the field.

During the second Test in Perth, Kohli indulged in a verbal battle with his Australian counterpart Tim Paine, forcing on-field umpire Chris Gaffaney to warn both the skippers. Subsequently, Virat copped a lot of criticism from Australian media and former cricketers alike. The likes of Allan Border, Mike Hussey and Mitchell Johnson have expressed their displeasure over Kohli’s on-field behaviour.

With both the sides now gearing up for the all-important Boxing Day Test in Melbourne, an Australian journalist has mocked Kohli in a Twitter post through a video.

In the 16-second long clip, a batsman after being Mankaded vents out his frustration by slamming his bat on the ground. In the caption, the Aussie journalist drew parallels between Kohli’s behaviour to the batsman appearing in the video.

"Here's Virat showing everyone how to behave when things don't go your way on the field," the journalist wrote in the caption.

Coming to the ongoing Border-Gavaskar Trophy, the series is currently poised at 1-1 with two Tests still to go. While India won the first Test in Adelaide by 31 runs, Australia made a resounding comeback to register a stunning 146-run victory in the second Test at Perth.
