Virat Kohli receives fine for excessive appeals against Afghanistan

The International Cricket Council (ICC) announced last Sunday that Indian captain Virat Kohli was fined 25 percent of his match fee for excessive appeals against Afghanistan during their match on June 22.

The ICC added that “excessive appealing during an international match” breached level 1 of the ICC code of conduct.

Kohli also received a demerit in his record after his aggressive appeal to Pakistani umpire Aleem Dar for an lbw decision during the 29th over of the match. However, no formal hearing is needed because Kohli accepted the sanction proposed by match referee Chris Broad.

India won the match against Afghanistan by 11 runs. The Men in Blue currently have +190 odds to win the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup.
