Virat Kohli has a long history of using abusive slurs on the field. The stump mics in South Africa were able to record some of the hilarious actions in this series. Recently, Kohli talking to Murali Vijay by using abusive language made headlines. And now, it has happened yet again!
On Day 3 of the third Test, Kohli said to his bowlers, “**** fati padi hai bh*****d, chalo dalo ek jagah pe yaar”. Kohli asked his bowlers to pitch the ball in a certain area as AB de Villiers and Dean Elgar were putting pressure on India after two quick wickets of openers Aiden Markram and Hashim Amla. Ravichandran Ashwin was given the ball to put some pressure on Elgar.

Earlier, the 29-year-old received one demerit point for breaching Level 1 of the Code of Conduct during third day’s play of second South Africa Test on January 15. He was also fined 25 percent of his match fee.
Kohli was found to have breached Article 2.1.1 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to “conduct that is contrary to the spirit of the game.”
Kohli proved that he is capable of scoring on overseas pitches as he scored 153 runs from 217 balls. The Indian skipper also broke the record for most number of centuries for a captain in Test cricket. He scored almost half of the team’s runs in the first innings and helped them get closer to South Africa’s total.
Kohli kept running out of partners but he managed to reduce the trial to an extent. However, Indian bowlers could not cash in on the wickets they got with the new ball as Elgar, De Villiers and skipper Faf du Plessis scored half-centuries in the second innings. India might be looking at a big score to chase at SuperSport Park, Centurion as the hosts have already got a lead of over 250 runs.
