India captain Virat Kohli has come under the scanner for colliding with South Africa’s Beuran Hendricks during the third T20 International between the two teams in Bengaluru on Sunday.

During the early overs of India’s batting, Kohli drove a Hendricks delivery and set off for a single.

However, neither did Hendricks move out of the way in his follow-through, nor did the Kohli alter his route while taking the run, resulting in the batsman making shoulder contact with the bowler.

While not much ensued thereafter, Hendricks wore a wry smile on his face, with Kohli not evening minding to look back.


Consequently, match referee Richie Richardson found Kohli guilty of making “inappropriate physical contact”, and was handed a demerit point – his third in less than two years.

Should Kohli get another one until January 2020, he will be facing a certain ban.

Meanwhile, South Africa chased down India’s 135-run target with utmost ease – nine wickets and 19 balls to spare, to be precise – to draw the three-match series 1-1.

The two teams will next square off against each other in the three-match Test series that gets under way on October 2.
