SA vs Ind: Kohli fined 25 per cent of his match fee for showing dissent
Centurion: Indian Cricket team skipper Virat Kohli on Tuesday was fined 25 per cent of his match fee for showing dissent on Day 3 of the second Test of the three-match series against South Africa here.
“The incident took place in the 25th over of South Africa’s second innings when Kohli continued to complain to umpire Michael Gough about the ball being affected by a damp outfield following a rain delay, before throwing the ball into the ground in an aggressive manner,” the ICC said in a statement.
Kohli accepted the sanctions proposed by match referee Chris Broad.
“After the day’s play, Kohli pleaded guilty to the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by Chris Broad of the Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees and, as such, there was no need for a formal hearing," it added.
