In response to the now-famous incident at the Crown Perth involving Virat Kohli, India’s head coach Rahul Dravid has said that it is not a pleasant experience when a player’s hotel room privacy is violated. Kohli was the subject of the incident. On Monday, October 31, Kohli took to social media to call out a hotel headquartered in Perth for an invasion of privacy that occurred when the hotel photographed and shared images of some of Kohli’s possessions.
The footage of the batting superstar’s personal possessions that was posted online showed him with items like his opened luggage, health supplements, and shoe collections. In a short amount of time, Kohli’s complaint gained widespread attention, and the hotel was subjected to harsh criticism from a variety of personalities, including Australian opener David Warner and Anushka Sharma, who is Virat’s better half.
The Men in Blue will be keen to bounce back to winning ways when they face a struggling Bangladesh side in the next encounter, which will take place at the Adelaide Oval on Wednesday, November 2, after suffering a setback by five wickets in their last game, which was played against South Africa.
“It was a letdown, and no one, least of all Virat, is very happy about it. We told the right people about it, and they did something about it. We hope that things like this won’t happen again and that people will be much more careful. It’s the only place where you don’t feel like you’re being watched and where you don’t have to deal with the media, photographers, and other things that the players have to deal with. It’s not a good feeling when that’s taken away,” Dravid said this at the press conference before India played Bangladesh in the T20 World Cup Super 12 match.
“He has done a great job with it. He is here to get better. He is doing just fine, “he added. On the other hand, it was said that the Indian team only complained to Crown Perth and not to Cricket Australia or the International Cricket Council (ICC). The news stories also said that the employees who did this have been fired from their jobs at the hotel immediately.
