Virat Kohli, the captain of the Indian Cricket Team has been given one demerit point moving him closer to a ban after making contact with South Africa’s Beuran Hendricks.
The incident happened during Sunday’s third Twenty20 international, with Kohli found guilty of making “inappropriate physical contact” with the bowler while taking a run.
He has been given a third demerit point by the International Cricket Council.
If the 30-year-old gets one more by 15 January 2020, he faces a ban.
Players who accrue four demerit points in a two-year period are given a suspension. Kohli’s first point came on 15 January 2018.
In this occasion, Kohli accepted the sanction proposed by match referee Richie Richardson.
