India won in the second T20
The ICC further said that Kohli has accepted his mistake and the amount of the fine and hence there is no need for a formal hearing against him now. On-field umpires Anil Chaudhary and KN Ananthapadamabhan and third umpire Virender Sharma accused the Indian team. Host India has defeated England by seven wickets in the second T20 match played on Sunday and have won 1-1 in the five-match T20 series. The third T20 match between the two teams will be played at the Narendra Modi Cricket Stadium in Ahmedabad on Tuesday.
