India batsman Virat Kohli has been reprimanded by the International Cricket Council for showing dissent at an umpire's decision during the third one-day international against West Indies.

After being adjudged lbw by umpire Sudhir Asnani in the ninth over of the 16-run defeat, Kohli stood his ground for a considerable time before eventually leaving the middle.

His actions were considered to be a show of dissent, and Kohli later pleaded guilty to the charge brought by on-field umpires Tony Hill and Asnani, and third umpire Vineet Kulkarni.

Match referee David Boon said that "accepting umpires' decisions is part and parcel of playing cricket and on this occasion Kohli clearly showed dissent when he had been given out".

India, who lead the five-match series 2-1, have made one change ahead of the remaining two ODIs with all-rounder Irfan Pathan recalled after nearly three years.

Pathan, 27, who played the last of his 107 one-day internationals in Sri Lanka in February 2009, has been rewarded with a call-up after claiming 21 wickets in three first-class matches for Baroda this season.

Left-arm seamer Pathan replaces Australia-bound Umesh Yadav for the one-dayers scheduled to take place in Indore on Thursday and Chennai on Sunday.
