Kohli fined for dissent during Asia Cup match vs Pakistan
DHAKA, Bangladesh (AP) India batsman Virat Kohli has been fined 30 per cent of his match fee for breaching the ICC Code of Conduct in the Asia Cup match against Pakistan on Saturday.
Kohli, who hit a match-winning 49 runs in India's five-wicket win, admitted to showing dissent after he was given out.
The ICC said in a release: ''The incident happened in the 15th over of India's innings when Kohli, after being given out leg before, displayed dissent by first showing his bat and then leaving the crease while looking back at the umpire and uttering some words that were contrary to the spirit of the game.''
Replays of the delivery showed that Kohli had inside edged the Mohammad Sami delivery on to his pad but was given leg-before by the on-field umpire Ruchira Palliyaguruge.
