India’s cricket board said on Thursday that India’s captain Virat Kohli has been warned for his ugly outburst against a touring Indian journalist in Perth and has been advised to maintain dignity.

The latest episode about Captain Kholi is all about abusing an Indian journalist for a story on him involving his girlfreind after Tuesday’s net session at the Murdoch Oval.

Kohli, currently India’s best batsman across all formats, later realised it was a case of mistaken identity and apologised to the target of his abuse through another journalist.

Issuing a statement the team media manager R.N. Baba has said terming it as a ”misunderstanding”.

However, the BCCI secretary has said that the team management in Australia has been warned against any such incident in future.

However. there were also multiple reports about the player over such incidents. Kohli has often polarized opinion over his regular run-ins with opposition players and was fined half of his match fee in 2012 for responding to barracking from the crowd by gesturing at them with his middle finger during a Sydney test.

India is currently at the top of Pool B after their crushing victory over the Windies on Friday made it four wins out of four in the tournament.
