On Sunday, Virat Kohli, captain of RCB in IPL 2015, was accused of breaking players’ protocol because he met Anushka in the course of IPL’s 55th cricket match being contested at Bangalore’s M Chinnaswamy Stadium.
As soon as DD did the batting initially and challenges RCB with 187 runs which is no doubt a big target to achieve, match was interrupted due to rain when Kohli and Gayle came for batting in the 2nd inning. The moment scorecard of RCB was 2/0, cricket match got disrupted; hence, cricketers had to leave the field.
Just in few minutes, Virat could be seen with his girlfriend Anushka in the corridor and visuals of Kohli’s meeting Anushka were displayed on the stadium’s big screen.
In accordance with BCCI Anti Corruption Policy, cricketers are banned from having a conversation or being cozy with public during the match. And although rain interrupted the game, it wasn’t actually over from the technical point of view.
However, BCCI’s decision is still awaited as to whether an action will be taken against the skipper or not!
Update:- BCCI has issued an unofficial warning to Virat Kohli
IPL chairman Rajiv Shukla told India today that:-
“We shouldn’t blow the thing out of proportion but I have spoken to him and told him he shouldn’t speak to anyone when technically the match is still on”
