Harare:

Miffed at being given out to a controversial catch, an incensed Indian captain Virat Kohli argued aggressively with on-field officials even after the third umpire ruled against him in the second cricket one-dayer against Zimbabwe here on Friday. (Highlights - 2nd ODI)

It was the seventh over of the Indian innings with medium-pacer Kyle Jarvis being the bowler. Kohli attempted to go past the mid-wicket but Malcolm Waller caught the ball.

The Indian batsman stood his ground even as Waller sought a review from the umpire as the fielder himself was not sure whether he had caught the ball cleanly.

The third umpire adjudged Kohli out even though the replays were unclear.

The 24-year-old refused to leave even after that and argued his case once again with the umpires -- Owen Chirombe and Bruce Oxenford -- who confirmed the decision through their walkie-talkies.

Eventually, Kohli, who had scored 14 runs at that stage, reluctantly walked back to the pavillion visibly upset with the decision. He faced 18 deliveries during his stay at the crease and struck a couple of fours.
