ICC Gives Decision On Virat Kohli Using A Walkie Talkie During Last Night’s Match

Indian skipper Virat Kohli might have ruffled a few feathers in yesterday’s match against New Zealand, as he was seen using a walkie-talkie, while sitting in the dugout during India’s batting.

Social media as sent on high alert when footage of Kohli talking on the walkie-talkie was aired. However, he wasn’t violating any rules set by the ICC.  As per the ICC, while mobile phones are banned from dressing rooms, players and members of team management are allowed to use walkie-talkies. It’s well within the rules, and even in the past we have seen coaches, umpires, and even players use walkie-talkies.

An ICC official gave a statement to PTI,

“While walkie talkie is used by support staff to communicate between dug out and the dressing room, Kohli had sought permission from Venue ACU manager before using it.”

The match, which was held at Firoz Shah Kotla, Delhi, went in India’s favour as India comfortably beat the Kiwis. It was the first time India beat New Zealand in a T20 match.
