MIRPUR (92 News) – India’s Virat Kohli has been fined 30 percent of his match fee for breaching the ICC Code of Conduct during his side’s Asia Cup T20 match against Pakistan in Mirpur on Saturday.

The player was found to have breached the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to showing dissent at an umpires decision during an international match.

On Sunday, Kohli admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by Jeff Crowe of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees. As such, there was no need for a formal hearing.

The charge was leveled by on-field umpires Ruchira Palliyaguruge and Sharfuddoula, third umpire Enamul Haque and fourth official Anisur Rahman.
