While there were no charges against the Team, Pycroft reportedly told the Men in Blue that the reactions were uncalled for and they could attract sanctions if such reactions are repeated.

Meanwhile, former Australian cricketers Adam Gilchrist and Shane Warne also criticised the Test captain for the incident. Although Kohli downplayed the incident, unhappy with the behavior, many former cricketers have asked for severe punishment for the skipper.

Warne called India's reaction a frustrated one which he feels increased with time. He went on to add that it had happened 3 or 4 times in the series which was enough.

Gilchrist too feels that the Indian skipper's frustration was brewing until it reached a point of no return.

English cricketer Michael Vaughan too has called out the captain and demanded for a suspension and imposition of a fine upon Kohli for his behavior.
