The Board of Cricket Control in India has been reported to be keeping eye on India’s new Test captain Virat Kohli over his behaviour. BCCI president Jagmohan Dalmiya has told that Kohli will be on notice over his behaviour.
“Kohli’s outbursts has to be examined and whatever corrective measures are needed will have to be taken,” the BCCI boss told in an exclusive interview. “I’m not brushing it aside, but I’m not saying all is well either.”
Known for his aggression both on and off the field, 26-year-old Kohli recently hit the headlines in all the wrong ways with his unprovoked outburst against a journalist during the World Cup 2015. It earned him a warning from BCCI during the tournament that was held Down Under.
Earlier in the month he also lashed out at the critics who were critical of his performance in the World Cup semi-final that India lost to Australia, saying they “should be ashamed of themselves” and that “no one has won more matches” than him in the last five years.
Kohli’s boorish behaviour has also evoked sharp criticism from several quarters, including former stars Sunil Gavaskar and VVS Laxman.
