In defense of Anushka Sharma: READ Virat Kohli's complete statement...

New Delhi: Virat Kohli, the lynchpin of Indian cricket team, has smashed critics through social-media, for trolling his ex-girlfriend Anushka Sharma.

Kohli, who has been in sublime form of late in all formats of cricket, took to Twitter on Monday to hit out at critics for all their trolls aimed at the Bollywood actress.

While Kohli posted a short message on Twitter, here is a detailed statement he posted through his Instagram account.

Shame on those people who have been having a go at anushka for the longest time and connecting every negative thing to her. Shame on those people calling themselves educated. Shame on blaming and making fun of her when she has no control over what i do with my sport. If anything she has only motivated and given me more positivity. This was long time coming. Shame on these people that hide and take a dig. And i dont need any respect for this post. Have some compassion and respect her. Think of how your sister or girlfriend or wife would feel if someone trolled them and very conveniently rubbished them in public. #nocompassion#nocommonsense

Within minutes, his post went viral on social-media, and was praised by Bollywood stars and thousands of fans.
