Nigel Llong reported for kicking a door at Bengaluru

Englishman Nigel Llong has been reported to the Committee of Administrators for allegedly kicking a door after an altercation with Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Virat Kohli in an IPL match in Bengaluru.

Llong, who is due to umpire the IPL final on Sunday, called out Bangalore paceman Umesh Yadav for a no-ball against Sunrisers Hyderabad but replays suggested the bowler's back foot was behind the line.

Kohli and Yadav protested the call but Llong stood with his decision.

Llong then vented his anger by kicking the door of the umpires' room at Bangalore's M. Chinnaswamy Stadium.

Llong reportedly paid 5,500 rupees in compensation for the damage but the Karnataka State Association has decided to report the incident to the sport's national body.

"It was an unfortunate incident. As a state association, we are duty bound to report it and we are writing to the CoA," a state official was quoted as saying.

Llong was also part of a controversial decision during Bangalore's rained-off match against Rajasthan Royals when the bowlers were allowed to bowl only one over in the five-overs-a-side contest when a maximum of two is allowed.
