Virat Kohli, the skipper of Team India, is one of the best players in international cricket. He has performed exceptionally well across formats. Though he has changed a lot in the last few years, he has had his own share of controversies.

During India’s tour of Australia in 2011-12, MS Dhoni kept him in the Playing XI of the third Test despite his ordinary display.

However, his participation in the match came under the scanner after he was caught showing a middle finger to the fans, who were going after him from the stands. Virat pleaded in front of the match referee.

“The match referee [Ranjan Madugalle] called me to his room the next day and I’m like, ‘What’s wrong?’. He said, ‘What happened at the boundary yesterday?’. I said, ‘Nothing, it was a bit of banter’. Then he threw the newspaper in front of me and there was this big image of me flicking on the front page and I said, ‘I’m so sorry, please don’t ban me!’. I got away with that one. He was a nice guy, he understood I was young and these things happen.” Kohli had said as reported by Times Now.
