Hypocrisy #04 - Kolkata and the Rest of India

The Indian Cricket team and Cricket lovers watching the fourth ODI between India and South Africa were stunned by the behavior of the Kolkata crowd. The crowd jeered at the Indian cricketers, booed the coach , cheered the fall of every Indian wicket and cheered when the South African scored runs too.
While commentators of the live broadcast masqueraded the crowd's behavior as sportiveness, the Indian captain was modest.

This was the same crowd that disrupted the 1996 World Cup semi-final against Sri Lanka because India was losing?

These were the people who interrupted the Indo-Pak Test in 1999 because Sachin Tendulkar was given out unfairly?
