    This is to inform all cricket lovers of South Africa that during the match with India, when AB Devillers was caught by Kohli on the ball of Herbajan Singh, Kohli abused Devillers saying him a SISTER FUCKER in Hindi language.Any one can confirm my statement from some one who can speak Urdu or Hindiit after replaying the clip. Kohli should be bared from international cricket because of this dirty act
