That the skipper of Team India is an angry young man was quite evident when Virat Kohli was out to a controversial catch in the second One-Day International against Zimbabwe in Harare on Friday.

He walked away fuming after even arguing aggressively with the on-field officials.

This is not the first time the Delhi lad was engaged in on-field aggression.

Hell broke loose during the seventh over of India’s innings with medium-pacer Kyle Jarvis bowling to Kohli. The in-form batsman attempted to send the ball past mid-wicket but only into the hands of Malcolm Waller.

The star Indian batsman stood his ground even as Waller sought a review from the umpire, not sure whether he had caught the ball cleanly.

The third umpire adjudged Kohli out even though replays were inconclusive.

The 24-year-old refused to leave even after that and argued his case again with umpires Owen Chirombe and Bruce Oxenford, who confirmed the decision through their walkie-talkies.

Eventually, Kohli had to make the long walk back to the pavilion.

He scored 14 runs and looked upset with the decision. His dismissal for 14 left India in early trouble at 35 for two.
