“Virat Kohli is an incredible leader. He’s just got this buzz of energy. He was taking the piss out of the Barmy Army with these trumpet signs. I love it. We don’t have enough characters in the game and mimicking the crowd, trying to get his own supporters going. When they came out after lunch he was getting them going. It was like he was at the end of the long jump in the Olympics trying to get the crowd going,” Vaughan told Fox Sports’ The Back Page.
“He’s an amazing character and yesterday he gave a tactical masterclass on how to win a Test match. Those that complain are just boring. They don’t understand entertainment. We’re in the entertainment industry where we need people like Virat Kohli. We need characters,” he added.
Kohli teases the Barmy Army by pretending to play the trumpet after Jasprit Bumrah‘s ball to dismiss Ollie Pope on the final day of the Oval Test.
The fifth and final Test between India and England will take place in Manchester on September 10th.
