Indian captain Virat Kohli was booed by the Sydney crowd when he walked out to bat on the first day of the last Test match. Well, it's certainly not the first time he was jeered by the fans. It happened during the second Test as well and Ricky Ponting had expressed his disappointment in Perth.

Former Australia skipper Ponting once again slammed the fans who were disrespectful towards the visiting team's captain when he walked out in the middle.

"If it was booing then it's absolutely disgraceful," Ponting said on Channel 7. "I said that in the Perth Test as well. Show some respect."

Kohli, however, remained calm and it had no impact on him which is expected from a big player. He, recently in an interview with Adam Gilchrist, had talked about how much he has changed as a person and cricketer.

Back in 2012, when Virat was at the receiving end fielding at the boundary ropes in Sydney, he had shown a middle finger to the crowd and was fined 50 percent of his match fee later.
