India star censured for outburst

7:32 am on 6 March 2015

India's star batsman Virat Kohli has been censured by the country's cricket board for his ugly outburst against a travelling Indian journalist in Perth.

Kohli underlined his reputation for run-ins with opposition players when he swore at the journalist over a story about his personal life after a net session earlier this week.

Kohli subsequently realised it was a case of mistaken identity, and apologised through another journalist.

In today's only Cricket World Cup pool match, India play the West Indies in Perth.
