An unexpected tale has hit in the Indian camp after Skipper’s involvement in verbal rift and that is Virat Kohli who got involved in harsh behaviour with Umpire in the second Chennai Test.
This incident was not commendable after seeing Indian Skipper in this moment and that totally representing a displeasure scenario. It was all plotted when Menon the Umpire declared Joe Root as not out in the final over of the day-4. Just after calling not-out, Virat Kohli didn’t waste a single minute and reviewed for the appeal. The appeal was for LBW in which Kohli took DRS and which has shown that there wasn’t any connection with bat and struck to the pad.
When the DRS appeal was shown from the third umpire Anil Chaudhary that the ball was totally travelling in the line and hitting stumps but the appeal came in final with umpire call and ultimately the appeal came to not-out.
After the decision came out to not-out, Virat Kohli was disappointed and goes towards the umpire Menon and shown slight anger and this gesture can trouble Kohli a lot. As under ICC code of conduct, if any player indulges himself in any rift with on field umpire, it won’t be tolerated and can lead to offensive call.
And now Virat Kohli has been adjourned with Level 1 or Level 2 offensive genre, which can lead him to one to four demerit points. At the present scenario he is already going with 2 demerit points and two more points might lead him to suspension from one Test match.

“He cannot be speaking to umpires like that and inciting the crowd. He should he setting a much better example. Someone in his camp should be having a word and the match referee should be interested. It’s calculated and it’s not a good look” quoted by Commentator David Lloyd.
Not only commentator said about Kohli even the former England Captain Micheal Vaughan quoted
“You can’t have this, I’m sorry. Kohli is such a powerhouse, you can’t have him intimidating the umpire. It’s a stinker of a decision but you can’t be doing that as a captain”.
