Mallya was spotted arriving at the ball in a Rolls Royce, and sources close to the team indicated Virat Kohli and Co had no idea he had bought a table, or was among the invitees.

BCCI sources say, "Look, Virat or his foundation never invited Mallya at the function". But normally what happens at the charity dinner is that someone who has bought a table is entitled to invite his guests.

The dinner event was conducted to raise awareness and funds for those affected by human trafficking.

Virat Kohli, in his first ICC tournament as captain, had nearly the ideal start against Pakistan as India romped home to victory by 124 runs in a rain-truncated match on Sunday. Mallya's presence is one of the reason that team left early.

Mallya had earlier caused a media sensation in Birmingham by attending the India-Pakistan game, and then tweeted: "I intend to attend all games to cheer the Indian team".

After watching India-Pakistan match at Edgbaston on Sunday, fugitive Vijay Mallya was present at Virat Kohli's Charity Ball on Monday.

Current owner of Force India, Mallya, is presently absconding and out on bail while being wanted in India for defaulting on bank loans with now defunct Kingfisher Airlines.

While on one hand Indian government is trying hard to extradite Vijay Mallya from the United Kingdom, he was seen enjoying at the recently held India-Pakistan Champions Trophy match in Birmingham.

"His presence creates a very uncomfortable situation for the cricketers", said a source.

Kohli's captaincy has drawn praise from former Australian captain, Michael Clarke, who lauded the passion and emotion shown by the 28-year-old in his stint as India skipper so far.
