Mohali: Jan 22, 2013

Indian middle order batsman Virat Kohli has tendered an apology to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for violating the rule of not interacting with the media during a series, according to reports.

According to the BCCI guidelines, the Indian cricketers are not allowed to speak to media apart from press conferences during a series.

Kohli had given an exclusive interview at length to The Telegraph newspaper after England’s routing by seven wickets in the third ODI at Ranchi on January 19.

It is believed that an Indian cricket official has sent an email to a member of the support staff, asking how Kohli spoke to the media between a series. The support staff member replied with a promise to reiterate the Indian players about the guidelines.

According to Mid DAY, Kohli said in his reply to the BCCI that he didn’t realise that he was not supposed to speak to the media during a series, stressing that it won’t be repeated. 

In his interview to The Telegraph, Kohli spoke about leading India in the future.

“Coming from Mr Gavaskar, it did feel good… That one comment (after the final Test against England) lifted my confidence… Made me more aware of my responsibilities as well.”

Talking about Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s captaincy, Kohli said: “I’d love to have MS’ calmness and composure… I’ve never seen him stressed… He’s been so composed even in the most difficult of situations. While remaining an aggressive cricketer, I’d still like to have his calmness. It’s reassuring.”
