New Delhi: India team captain Virat Kohli’s problems could increase. In fact, Virat Kohli had an argument with field referee Nitin Menon in the second test match played against England in Chennai. On day three of the second game played at MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai, Joe Root was given life thanks to field referee Nitin Menon off Akshar Patel.
Akshar Patel had a strong call against Root and Virat used the DRS when the ref was given a notout. The ball looked out of the wicket, but thanks to the referees’ call, Root got a life.
Kohli ran into the referee
After that, Virat Kohli got angry after seeing this and looked very angry. After the third referee’s decision, Virat reached the referee on the Menon field and there was a debate between the two. Video of this incident was also increasingly viral on social media. Virat Kohli may find it costly to get involved with the referee. Under Article 2.8 of the ICC Code of Conduct, a Level 1 or Level 2 charge can be made for expressing dissatisfaction or challenging an arbitrator’s decision.
Kohli can be banned for a match
For this, one to four demerit points can be added to the player’s account. If four demerit points are added to a player’s account within 24 months, then he may face the ban of one test, two ODIs or two T20 internationals.
Virat already has two demerit points in his account and if he gets two more demerit points for it, he may be suspended from a test match. If this happens, Virat Kohli may be out of the Day Night test in Ahmedabad. However, the ICC has yet to convict Virat Kohli for this.
