The Indian team management has instructed players not to use Twitter and other social networking sites to voice their opinions.
The recent ban on the usage of social networking sites comes in the wake of Virat Kohli justifying his middle finger gesture to the Sydney Cricket Ground fans.
Kohli was been fined 50 per cent of his match fee after being found guilty of breaching the ICC’s Code of Conduct during the second day’s play in the second cricket Test against Australia in Sydney.
“I agree cricketers don’t have to retaliate. What when the crowd says the worst things about your mother and sister? The worst I’ve heard,” Kohli said on Twitter.
England batting star Kevin Pietersen, replied: “Ha ha ha ha ha!!! Welcome to Australia buddy!!”
Kohli then replied: “Never heard crap like that. EVER”.
The Indian team management wants to ensure that the series gets over without any controversies as the previous one was marred by controversies.
