Kohli punished for offensive physical contact

Virat Kohli has gotten an official warning and has received a demerit point for "inappropriate physical contact" during the third T20I against South Africa. The added demerit point takes his points tally to three and another disciplinary breach could land the Indian skipper in trouble leading to his suspension for a couple of international fixtures.

The incident in question occurred during the fifth over of the Indian innings when the star batsman rubbed shoulders with opposing left-arm pacer Beuran Hendricks while running down the pitch for a single.

Kohli was found guilty of a Level 1 breach of the Article 2.12 of the ICC code of conduct that relates to "Inappropriate physical contact with a Player, Player Support Personnel, Umpire, Match Referee or any other person (including a spectator) during an International Match."
