According to Press Association, Kohli made a beeline for a bemused Hindustan Times reporter on the boundary, before unleashing an expletive-laden tirade on the man.
The star batsman had planned to target another reporter from a rival newspaper in regards to a story about his personal life.
Upon realising his mistake, Kohli reportedly sent another journalist over to apologise on his behalf.
“There was a misunderstanding and no abusive language was used. Virat has spoken to the concerned gentlemen immediately and the matter ends,” an India spokesman said.
India are unbeaten at the Cricket World Cup having won all three of its Pool B clashes.
