Now, this is nothing new. Parvez Rasool got into a similar controversy earlier this year in January. Rasool was seen chewing gum ahead of a T20 game against England when the Indian national anthem was played.
There is little doubt that this incident of Kohli having gum in his mouth will create a storm much like the Rasool incident did. Being the captain of the team, Kohli is anyway always under a microscopic gaze.
