NZ vs Ind: Virat Kohli warned by umpire Richard Kettleborough

However, one incident during the New Zealand innings that didn't please umpire Richard Kettleborough was when Indian players tried to dodge New Zealand openers, Tom Latham and Tom Blundell. It all happened in the fourth over of the Kiwi innings when an Indian fielder was heard shouting “two” in the fourth over during New Zealand’s chase although the batsmen were taking a single.

This incident didn't please umpire Kettleborough as he immediately approached Indian skipper Virat Kohli for a quick chat. He was seen warning Virat Kohli who tried to justify his player’s actions. Virat Kohli justified saying that the player was just trying to alert the fielder at the fine leg of the possibility of a second run.

Kettleborough told Virat Kohli to not shout two after accusing him of doing the same. Kettleborough was totally unimpressed by Virat Kohli’s explanation, saying he had enough of it and warned him to not shout again.
