Hyderabad: Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Virat Kohli along with glovesman Dinesh Karthik got into a heated argument with umpire Kumar Dharmasena as the match officials continued with final two overs of Sunrisers Hyderabad innings despite steady drizzle.

Having already lost two hours and 40 minutes of play due to steady downpour, the match was curtailed to 11 overs-per-side.

It was during the 10th over that it again started drizzling and the rain really picked up in the final over of the innings.

It was during the fourth ball of the final over when Kohli misfielded as the soapy white ball slipped out of his palms. An agitated Kohli tried to draw the attention of the umpires as it was steady downpour. Kohli in his desperate bid was trying to make a point about the pitch getting wet due to downpour.

By the time the over ended, the temperamental Indian Test captain walked towards umpire Dharmasena asking him animatedly about why the match was not stopped when rains picked up.

While other umpire Anil Chaudhary, who is also from Delhi tried to calm Kohli down, the RCB skipper didn't carry on the argument for long even though Dharmasena seemed quite upset.

It didn't help as Karthik picked up the argument from where Kohli had left as Dharmasena didn't seem one bit amused.
