Does expression play a role in cricket? Here's how Virat Kohli's gentle giants rule the field

Old-timers often say cricket is not a gentleman's game anymore. One can always say it never was. The highly controversial Bodyline series was played way back in 1932-33, not to mention underarm bowling or ugly spats between players and umpires in olden times. So it's just that today's cricketers are more expressive. That is why fist pumps, jumps and talking to some invisible detractor has become the norm. An animated sendoff has overpowered the smiling high-five with teammates after taking a wicket. You cannot win without beating your rivals psychologically. Hence in-your-face aggression is the need of the hour. Very few embody the expressive, passionate modern cricketer more than Virat Kohli. He has results to show for it, both as a batsman and as captain.
