And the battle continues between West Indies’ Kesrick Williams and Indian skipper Virat Kohli in the ongoing second of three-match T20I series between India and West Indies at the Greenfield International Stadium in Thiruvananthapuram.
After the heroics of Virat Kohli in the thrilling first match and the way things turned out between Kesrick Williams and Virat Kohli, everyone was eagerly waiting for the round two of the duel.
In the last match in Hyderabad, Virat Kohli gave Kesrick Williams the taste of his own medicine by mocking the West Indies bowler by doing his infamous ‘notebook celebration’ after dispatching him for a six.
Never mess with the skipper, he will surely return back what you give. And the testimony of this fact was given last night by him as he gave it back to Kesrick Williams by imitating his ‘notebook’ celebrations.
It was a power-packed performance from the ‘run-machine’ – Virat Kohli last night in the first T20 Internation series against West Indies. The Indian skipper, once again, made everyone sit on the edge of their seats with his impeccable batting skills as he went on to score 94* to chase down mammoth 208 with more than an over to spare.
Alongside his partner KL Rahul, Virat Kohli gave a blockbuster performance and helped his team to gun down their highest-ever T20I chase in the first T20 Internation series against West Indies.
Though Kohli struggled, in the beginning, to find the rhythm but a couple of boundaries brought back his rhythm and he started hitting his trademark lofted drives and the long jaw-dropping shots and took the game with a storm. And the same was reflected when he smashed a Kesrick Williams’ deliveries.
It was the 16th over of the game when the skipper Kieron Pollard handed over the balling responsibility to Kesrick Williams. On the first ball itself, Kieron missed his mark slightly and was smashed by Kohli straight down the ground to a beautiful boundary. Soon after pulling this boundary, Virat Kohli mocked the West Indies bowler and entertained the fans.
Well, in 2017, Kesrick Williams had given Virat Kohli a ‘notebook-style’ send-off after taking his wicket. Seems like it was one of the things King Kohli could not forget.
Now, in the ongoing second match between India vs West Indies, the fans got to see round 2 of the battle between Virat Kohli and Kesrick Williams.
Kesrick Williams not just dismissed Virat Kohli but also gave him a very interesting send-off. Virat Kohli’s wicket came down with a slower before coming up with an interesting gesture. But this time, instead of telling anything to Virat Kohli or mocking him, Kesrick Williams asked his teammates to remain silent.
Meanwhile, India gave West Indies a target of 170 runs. The Indian skipper was sent back to pavilion after he scored 19 runs.
