Ind vs Aus Border Gavaskar Trophy 2017 News : India’s comeback victory in the Bangalore Test hasn’t gone well with the Aussies it seems, especially with their media. But this is not new at all for any series involving Australia as their media does play its part in attacking the opposition team players and other key persons with sensational articles.

This time India skipper Virat Kohli and Coach Anil Kumble were targeted by an article published in The Daily Telegraph, accusing them of behaving in an unacceptable manner during the Ind vs Aus 2nd Test for the Border Gavaskar Trophy 2017.

The publication has alleged that Virat Kohli used an energy drink bottle to assault an Australian official while Anil Kumble had barged into ICC Match Referee Chris Broad’s room soon after Virat Kohli’s questionable lbw dismissal through the DRS in the second innings of the Bangalore Test match 2017.

The Daily Telegraph wrote : “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.

“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.”

The publication related to the alleged behavior of Virat Kohli with that of former World Cup-winning Sri Lankan captain Arjuna Ranatunga. It wrote: “Kohli was also seen 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 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.”

It concluded saying that the ICC by not initiating any action on Virat Kohli for his on and off the field behavior during the Bangalore Test has virtually allowed complete anarchy to break out in Test cricket.
