During India's game against Australia in the 2019 World Cup, Virat Kohli also apologised to Steven Smith on behalf of the fans after sections of the crowd jeered the former Australian captain while he was fielding in the deep.
The Indian skipper said he didn't want the Indian fans to set a bad example.
Speaking about the incident in the post-match press conference, Kohli said:
"There are so many Indian fans here, I just didn't want them to set a bad example to be honest. He didn't do anything to be booed, in my opinion. He's just playing cricket. I mean he's just standing there and I felt bad because if I was in a position where something had happened with me and I'd apologised and accepted it and I came back and still I get booed, I wouldn't like it either.
"So I just felt for him and told him 'sorry for... on behalf of the crowd'. We've seen that happen in a few earlier games as well. In my opinion that's not acceptable."
