India vs Bangladesh: Virat Kohli replaces MS Dhoni as wicketkeeper in 1st ODI

 

Virat Kohli replaced MS Dhoni as the wicketkeeper ahead of the 43rd over of the Bangladesh innings during the first One-Day International against India at the Sher-e-Bangla Stadium in Dhaka on Thursday. With regular wicketkeeper and captain MS Dhoni going off the field for some reason at the Sher-e-Bangla Stadium, Kohli took the big gloves and stood behind the stumps as paceman Umesh Yadav ran in and bowled the 44th over. At the time, the Bangladesh were 264/5. This move reminded us of former India skipper and legendary batsman Rahul Dravid, who performed all duties on the field during his illustrious career, including wicketkeeping and bowling part-time bowling.
