New Delhi:

India batsman Virat Kohli has been reprimanded for breaching the ICC Code of Conduct during the third ODI against the West Indies in Ahmedabad on Monday.

Kohli pleaded guilty to a Level 1 offence and accepted the proposed sanction from Match Referee David Boon after play concluded. He was found to have breached 2.1.3 of the code which relates to "showing dissent at an umpire's decision".

After being given out in the ninth over, the player stood his ground for a considerable time before eventually leaving the middle. This was considered to be a show of dissent, a fact accepted by the player himself. As Kohli pleaded guilty and accepted the proposed sanction there was no need for a formal hearing.

The charge was brought by on-field umpires Tony Hill and Sudhir Asnani and third umpire Vineet Kulkarni.

"Accepting umpires' decisions is part and parcel of playing cricket and on this occasion Virat clearly showed dissent when he had been given out," Boon said.
