Virat Kohli is someone who is extremely vocal about his thoughts. On many occasion, the Indian captain has spoken his mind and has spoken up about right. This time too during the second T20 match between India and Australia, at Melbourne Cricket Ground, Virat was seen arguing with the on-field umpire for continuing the game despite a heavy rainfall. The Indian bowlers had already done a fine job of plucking wickets and restricting Australia to the score of 132 runs for the loss of seven wickets. India vs Australia, 2nd T20I 2018 Highlights: Match Abandoned Called Off Due to Rain, Australia Lead Series 1-0!

It was during the 19th over of the Aussie innings that Jasprit Bumrah was handed the ball and after bowling a couple of them, it started raining heavily. Yet the umpires continued with the game. This did not go down well with Kohli and he argued with the umpires for continuing with the game despite the rainfall.

Later during the post-match show, even the former captain Michael Clarke agreed with Virat Kohli stand because the wetter the pitch got due to heavy downpour, the more difficult it would have been for the Indian batsmen to bat in the second innings. However, due to the continuation of rains, the second T20I between India and Australia was called off. The hosts are currently 1-0 ahead in the three-matchT20I series.
