“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,” the ICC said in a release.

Replays of the delivery showed that Kohli had inside edged the Mohammad Sami delivery on to his pad but was given lbw by the on-field umpire Ruchira Palliyaguruge.

He was on 49 at the time, having rescued India from 8 for 3 in a chase of 84. India were eight runs from victory when Kohli fell and they eventually passed the target with five wickets in hand and 27 balls to spare.

    Umps &refs have too much power.They can win or cause a game to be lost based on their decision and this is why these crooks are against hi tech equipment.
    One often wonders how much an up or ref does get his family to bet on games they know they will throw?
