Virat Kohli during India vs Bangladesh:
The incident took place during the 12th over of the match. Mohammed Shami appealed for a leg before wicket against Bangladesh’s opening batsman Soumya Sarkar. The field umpire was however not convinced, and he rejected the appeal.
Following this, Kohli decided to get review the decision and went ahead with the DRS. The DRS too confirmed the umpire’s decision and the Third umpire did not change it.
The DRS showed that the ball had hit Soumya’s pad and bat at the same time. He was therefore not out. Soumya continued his innings and India lost their review.
Kohli was still not convinced since he thought that the ball had touched the pad first. He showed dissent and even argued with the umpire.
In the previous match against Afghanistan, Kohli was fined 25% of his match fee due to excessive appealing. He also earned a point of demerit for himself since he breached the ICC Code of Conduct.
Virat during India vs South Africa:
Kohli has had similar experiences even before the world cup. He was given a demerit point for bad conduct during a test match with South Africa in 2015. He has breached level 1 of the ICC Code of Conduct. This breach is related to excessive appealing during an international match.
What happens if you breach Level 1?
A breach of Level 1 can result in a penalty of 50% of the match fee, or one or two demerit points. If a player gets four or more demerit points in a span of two years, they are converted into suspension points. The player has to face a ban in this case.
Two suspension points result in a ban from one Test or two ODI matches.
The number is decided on the occurrence of matches. The demerit points are marked in the career record of the player and are monitored for two years. These are reset after two years.
Kohli did not receive any penalty for the match against Bangladesh. But if he repeats similar actions in the match against Sri Lanka, then the situation could escalate.
