Third T20I: ICC reprimands Virat Kohli for inappropriate physical contact with Hendricks

Dubai, Sep 23 (UNI) India captain Virat Kohli was reprimanded by the ICC on Monday after being found guilty of inappropriate physical contact with South African bowler Beuran Hendricks during the third T20I in Bengaluru on Sunday.
''India captain Virat Kohli has received an official warning and one demerit point after being found guilty of a Level 1 breach of the ICC Code of Conduct during Sunday’s third T20I against South Africa,'' ICC said in a statement on it's official website.
According to a statement issued by the International Cricket Council, Kohli breached Article 2.12 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to ''Inappropriate physical contact with a Player, Player Support Personnel, Umpire, Match Referee or any other person (including a spectator) during an International Match''.
The incident occurred in the fifth over of India's innings, when Kohli made contact with bowler Beuran Hendricks while taking a run.
The charges against Kohli were levelled by on-field umpires Nitin Menon and C K Nandan, third umpire Anil Chaudhary and fourth official Chettihody Shamshuddin.
Kohli admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by match referee Richie Richardson of the Emirates ICC Elite Panel of Match Referees, and as such, there was no need for a formal hearing.
This was Virat Kohli's third offence since the demerit point system was introduced in 2016. Earlier, he had received one demerit point each during the Pretoria Test against South Africa on January 15, 2018 and against Afghanistan during a World Cup match on June 22, 2019.
Virat Kohli had led India to a convincing victory in the second T20I against South Africa on September 18 after the first match was washed out. However, Kohli and other other Indian batsmen failed on Sunday as South Africa romped home to a nine-wicket victory.
The three-match T20I series was drawn 1-1 and India lost the chance to secure their first ever T20I series win over South Africa at home.
