Kohli alleges disrespect to India physio; Smith rubbishes it

Allegations and denials flew thick and fast between rival captains Virat Kohli and Steven Smith with the India skipper claiming that the home team physio Patrick Farhart was "disrespected" by visiting players. Kohli alleged that some Australians unnecessarily taunted the Farhart but Smith denied the claim. "They started taking Patrick's name. I don't know why. He's our physio.

His job is to treat me. I don't find the reason behind it. I could not understand. You must ask why they have started taking his name," said Kohli. When an Australian scribe asked about the mocking incident involving himself and Glenn Maxwell, an upset Kohli said: "It's funny all our guys ask about cricket as the first thing and you ask about something controversial. But it's okay. These things happen on the field.

" However Smith insisted that they never disrespected Farhart, who himself is an Australia. "It was a bit disappointing. I didn't actually do anything. Virat was having a go at me saying I was disrespecting Patrick. It was probably the exact opposite. "I think he probably did a pretty terrific job to be able to get Virat back on the field. He's a terrific physio and he obviously does a great job for them," said Smith.
