New Delhi: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has pulled up Team India's vice captain Virat Kohli for his abusive behaviour with a media person at Perth on Tuesday.
In a statement released to the media on Thursday afternoon, the BCCI said: "The player in question has been told to maintain the dignity of the Indian team at all times, and avoid any such behaviour in the future."
It all started when Team India was attending a practice session at Murdoch University in Perth ahead of their league game against West Indies at the WACA on Friday. Once he was done with his training and was returning to the dressing room, Kohli had a go at a senior journalist from a leading Indian national daily.
The statement said that Board has firmly asked the Indian team management to ensure that incident that happened post India's practice session here on Tuesday is not repeated.
After the incident the concerned reporter had lodged a complaint with BCCI. The BCCI has requested all the concerned parties to move on, and focus on the Indian cricket team's campaign in the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2015.
