New Delhi: Former Indian wicket keeper Farokh Engineer said it wasn’t bad that Virat Kohli returned home for the birth of his first child. Kohli’s decision received a mixed reaction between cricket lanes and fans.
Engineer Farokh said, “I am against Kohli’s criticism. Why would you want to do this. He decided to live with his wife Anushka Sharma at the time of the birth of their first child, it is his personal decision. This is not a bad thing.

The engineer, who played 46 test matches between 1961 and 1975, said: “It’s a situation like South America. These people are very passionate about football as we are about cricket. If we lose outside, or if we lose anywhere, the next day our homes are attacked. But the next day, if you do well, you are on top. You are God We are so obsessed.
The engineer, however, said that if he had been he would have played after Adelaide’s result, but he sees no error in Virat Kohli’s decision. He said: “I used to play for India, especially after the result of the first test match. I would think about my country but I will not blame Virat Kohli for being with the family.
