Things are not settling down between India and Australia. (Oz paper claims that Kohli threw a bottle at an Aussie official !)
After a tumultuous couple of days which involved everyone from Kohli, Smith, BCCI, ICC and Cricket Australia, we are now getting more sensational news regarding the same.
The Daily Telegraph has suggested that Virat Kohli hurled an energy drink bottle at an Australian official after his dismissal in the second innings of the Bengaluru Test match. It has also accused Anil Kumble of marching into the umpires’ room asking for clarification over Kohli’s LBW dismissal.
“Kohli might be the aggressor in the brazen campaign India is running against Australia’s integrity — even striking an Australian official with an orange Gatorade bottle — but coach Kumble, one of the main instigators of the Monkeygate fiasco, would appear to have reclaimed his role as the puppeteer behind the scenes,” the report said.
“It’s understood Kumble has also made his fury known about the actions of match referee Chris Broad during the Test, complaints which are now to be passed onto the ICC by the BCCI,” the report added. (Oz paper claims that Kohli threw a bottle at an Aussie official !)
“It can be revealed he (Kohli) unleashed an astonishing outburst in the dressing rooms following his dismissal, smashing a Gatorade bottle off a table, where it then rebounded off a television and struck an Australian team official on the leg.
“Kohli was also seen swearing in the direction of the Australian box as he left the field and using a throat-slitting gesture to send-off Peter Handscomb late in the Test,”
“The spirit of the game notion has been pronounced dead in the game many times before, but Kohli — a law unto himself — would appear to have killed it off once again with his behaviour some of the worst by an international captain since villainous Sri Lankan leader Arjuna Ranatunga.”
