BCCI rubbishes media reports on CoA’s memo to Kohli

Mumbai: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Sunday dubbed media reports of Indian skipper Virat Kohli being served with a CoA memo as ‘baseless’.

“There has been a report in the media by a Mumbai based tabloid dated November 17, 2018, with the headline- Be Humble: Virat Kohli gets a CoA memo. The BCCI after consulting with the team management would like to rubbish the report and classify it as baseless,” a statement by BCCI said.

According to media reports, Kohli was sent a memo by the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) to conduct himself with humility.

Meanwhile, Kohli, who was given break during the three-match T20I series against West Indies, will return to the field and take over captainship for the upcoming three-match T20I and four-Test match series against Australia, beginning from November 21.
