Virat Kohli, the India batsman, has been reprimanded by the ICC for showing dissent after his dismissal in the third ODI against West Indies in Ahmedabad. Kohli was given lbw on 20 by umpire Sudhir Asnani in a match India eventually lost by 16 runs.
After being given out lbw to offspinner Sunil Narine in the ninth over of India's chase, Kohli stood his ground for a considerable time before eventually leaving the middle. The umpires considered that to be a show of dissent.
Kohli pleaded guilty to a level one offence and accepted the proposed sanction from match referee David Boon after play concluded. He was found to have breached 2.1.3 of the ICC Code of Conduct, which relates to "showing dissent at an umpire's decision".
"Accepting umpires' decisions is part and parcel of playing cricket and on this occasion Virat clearly showed dissent when he had been given out," Boon said.
