Virat Kohli claims afspa cover for the fingering incident, had done it in National Interest.
Virat Kohli is having a mid finger crisis
Virat Kohli was only appealing that Clarke is out. Poor guy is dyslexic, raised his middle finger instead of index.
All Virat Kohli was trying to say was.. you know.. '4-down'.
Can't remember the last time Virat Kohli didn't say "Bhenchod" after taking a catch.

Kohli may face action for middle finger gesture
Virat Kohli, the Indian batsman, could face possible disciplinary action after a middle-finger gesture to a section of the Sydney Cricket Ground crowd during the second day's play on Tuesday.
Kohli was photographed raising his middle finger as India struggled to contain Ricky Ponting and Michael Clarke during the course of their 288-run stand, the highest fourth-wicket partnership ever compiled against India in Test cricket.
According to Level 1 of the ICC's Code of Conduct, a player found guilty of "using language or a gesture that is obscene, offensive or insulting" can be fined up to 50 per cent of their match fee. The matter has not yet been spoken of by the on-field umpires Marais Erasmus and Ian Gould or the match referee Ranjan Madugalle, but if it is raised the 23-year-old Kohli could be censured.
A similar incident was seen in the English Premier League when Liverpool's Luis Suarez was banned for a match after indecently gesturing at a section of Fulham's fans.
Last month, Kohli had been reprimanded for showing dissent at an umpire's decision during the third ODI against West Indies in Ahmedabad. He had stood his ground for a considerable time after being given out lbw, and later pleaded guilty to a Level 1 offence while accepting the proposed sanction from the match referee David Boon.
Meanwhile, Kohli in his twitter account wrote, "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."
England batsman Kevin Pietersen replied to his tweet, "ha ha ha ha ha!!! Welcome to Australia buddy!!"
If Kohli is found guilty, he could face a minimum penalty of having half of his match fee docked or a maximum penalty of a one-Test suspension.
However, so far the on-field umpires have not raised the issue with the match referee Ranjan Madugalle.
