Cricket Australia chief James Sutherland on Thursday took a dig at Virat Kohli, saying he is not sure if the Indian captain knows how to spell the word "sorry".
“Look I am not sure he knows how to spell the word,” Sutherland said on a radio chat with Australian channel Fiveaa.
Sutherland's ‘witty’ response came when the radio jockey asked him whether Kohli should apologise to rival captain Steven Smith for questioning his integrity in the second Test in Bengaluru.
Kohli had stopped short of calling Smith a cheat after the Australian captain sought dressing room's advice for a DRS call, triggering a major controversy.
Sutherland, who had called Kohli's "cheating" claims outrageous before striking a truce with the BCCI, hopes the hostilities between the two teams end post the fourth and final Test in Dharamsala.
After the end of this long and cut-throat series, lets hope the boys from both teams get together and have a bit of a laugh. I know they are going to spend a lot of time together in the IPL, so I am sure if it doesn’t happen after Dharamsala Test, it will happen during the IPL.
Sections of Australian media have repeatedly attacked Kohli, most recently calling him the "Donald Trump of the sporting world".
