Team India recently won their opening ICC World Cup 2019 fixture against South Africa by 6 wickets on June 5 at the Rose Bowl in Southampton. High on confidence, Virat Kohli led team India’s next match is against Australia on June 9 at the Kennington Oval in London. In the meantime, Kohli has found himself in a bit of trouble.
The Gurugram municipal corporation have reportedly issued a Challan against Indian skipper Virat Kohli for wastage of drinking water at a time of washing his cars outside his house, which is located in DLF Phase 1 of Gurugram. The municipal corporation officers arrived when Kohli’s domestic help was washing the cars with drinking water and imposed a Rs 500 fine on Virat Kohli.
Virat Kohli acquires nearly half a dozen cars, including a couple of SUVs as claimed by his neighbours, who have reportedly complained that a thousand liters of water is wasted on washing his cars as per reports in DNA.
Due to severe heat conditions, North India is witnessing an acute water shortage. The temperature in Delhi is hovering around the 45 degrees Celsius for the last few days. Gurugram also is going through the same problem.
The Municipal Corporation officials also informed that along with Kohli’s residence, there were ten other houses which were imposed with the fines by the authorities. The Gurugram Corporation Commissioner has issued a warning, saying that wastage of water won’t be tolerated and strict action will be taken.
As far as Kohli’s World Cup journey is concerned, he didn’t have a great outing in India’s opener versus South Africa, though his team won the match. The skipper could only manage 18 off 34 balls with one boundary before getting caught by Quinton de Kock behind the wickets on Andile Phehlukwayo’s delivery. But he is expected to bounce back in Team India’s next world cup fixture against Australia on Sunday, June 9 at the Kennington Oval in London.
