“Most foul-mouthed individual”: Former England batsman Nick Compton on Virat Kohli

Nick Compton, a former England batsman, has described Indian captain Virat Kohli as the "most foul-mouthed individual."

The 38-year-old, who scored 775 runs in 16 Test matches between 2012 and 2016, remembered an event from a Test series in India in 2012 in a tweet.

"Isn't Kohli the most foul-mouthed individual? I'll Never forget the barrage of abuse I received in 2012 when the swearing [emoticon: swearing face] stunned me to the point that he did himself a serious disservice. It highlights what a level headed and grounded man Root, Tendulkar, Williamson et al are," said Compton in a tweet in which he also praised the level-headedness of Sachin Tendulkar, Kane Williamson and Joe Root.

Denis Compton, Compton's grandfather, played in 78 Test matches for England between 1937 and 1957, when cricket was still considered a gentleman's game with few instances of on-field sledding, which became more common in the 1970s and increased in frequency during the 1990s and 2000s due to the behavior of Australian cricketers.

During the second Test, which India won on the fifth and final day, Kohli got into a confrontation with England pace bowler James Anderson.

Kohli, on the other hand, shook hands with the 39-year-old England pacer, who has taken the third most wickets in Test cricket.

On the field, the 32-year-old India No. 4 batsman has been outspoken and has gotten into spats with players like Steve Smith.
