Perth: India's premier batsman and team's vice-captain Virat Kohli on Tuesday suddenly lost his cool after the training session here as he hurled abuses at a journalist before the side's group league game against West Indies at the WACA on Friday.

It didn't occur to anybody that something of this sort will happen. Once Kohli was done with his training and was returning to the dressing room, he saw a scribe of a national daily in front of him.

To the horror of that journalist, Kohli started using filthiest of language and it went on for some time before he stormed off and some of the Indian team members looked amazed as to what exactly had happened.

The particular journalist also seemed clueless but once Kohli cooled down, he told someone about an article that had appeared about him and his girlfriend Anushka Sharma in a national daily and he thought that it was that particular journalist, who had written the story.

According to reliable sources, Team Director Ravi Shastri has personally spoken to Kohli and advised him to keep his cool as it is unbecoming of a future India captain to behave in this manner publicly.
