After the conclusion of the Decision Review System controversy, which happened in the second Test between India and Australia in Bangalore, a new controversy has surfaced around the Indian team.

The Australian newspaper ‘The Daily Telegraph’ has accused Indian captain Virat Kohli and coach Anil Kumble for their indecent behavior in the dressing room.

It has been said in the report that an Australian team official has been injured due to throwing a bottle of Gatorade by the Indian captain. On the other hand, it is has been also said that Kumble went straight into the Umpire’s room to get an explanation for the controversial Virat Kohli decision in the 2nd innings.

The Daily Telegraph reports read, “Kohli might be the aggressor in the brazen campaign India is running against Australia’s integrity — even striking an Australian official with an orange Gatorade bottle — but coach Kumble, one of the main instigators of the Monkeygate fiasco, would appear to have reclaimed his role as the puppeteer behind the scenes.”

According to the report, Kohli had exploded the dressing room after his dismissal on the third day of the second Test in Bangalore.

The report further added, “It’s understood Kumble has also made his fury known about the actions of match referee Chris Broad during the Test, complaints which are now to be passed onto the ICC by the BCCI.”

It said, “It can be revealed he (Kohli) unleashed an astonishing outburst in the dressing rooms following his dismissal, smashing a Gatorade bottle off a table, where it then rebounded off a television and struck an Australian team official on the leg. Kohli was also swearing in the direction of the Australian box as he left the field and using a throat-slitting gesture to send-off Peter Handscomb late in the Test.”

The reports also claimed that Indian captain Kohli had totally killed the spirit of the game by his worst behavior. However, there are not any response comes from Indian management about that matter. It concluded, “The spirit of the game notion has been pronounced dead in the game many times before, but Kohli — a law unto himself — would appear to have killed it off once again with his behaviour some of the worst by an international captain since villainous Sri Lankan leader Arjuna Ranatunga.”
