Cape Town – South African television broadcaster SuperSport
has fallen foul of coach Duncan Fletcher and others in the Indian cricket team
management over repeat coverage of the “rib-tickler” star batsman Virat Kohli
received from Proteas strike bowler Dale Steyn.
Writer Neil Manthorp – who doubles as a TV commentator
himself – has reported on Wisden India's website

rerun of Kohli copping a delivery in the ribs on the lively Bullring track.
SuperSport communications manager Clinton van der Berg told
Sport24: “I’m not sure what SuperSport did wrong.
