It’s always a matter of pride for any bowler to pick the wicket of Virat Kohli who’s the best batsman in modern day cricket. It was even more special for Lungi Ngidi to pick the wicket of Virat Kohli in front of his parents.
After the Indian openers got out cheaply, Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli showed some resistance and tried to get the Indian innings some sort of consolidation. Virat Kohli looked really great for his knock of 54 sans a few lose shots.
What saw the Indian captain return to the hut was a great delivery from Lungi Ngidi and some extraordinary catching skills from none other than AB De Villiers. The young Ngidi was enthralled to have picked Virat Kohli yet again.
The Priceless Reaction Of His Parents
While their son was serving the nation on the casket ground, Ngidi’s parents were proudly watching him from the stands. Their reaction when they saw Kohli falling to Ngidi was just priceless and filled with happiness, joy and pride. Soon after the Indian captain the vice captain, Ajinkya Rahane too made his way back to the dressing room having scored just 9 runs.
There were a lot of expectations from him on his return to the side but he couldn’t justify has selection at the expense of Rohit Sharma. India is in a spot of bother having lost 4 wickets for a meagre score.
Lungi Ngidi on the other hand is making every inch of his selection count. He won the Man Of The Match in just his first game at The Centurion and even in this game he has dismissed the Indian Skipper.
His parents are amply proud of him and it’s evident from there reaction in this video. His parents were drenched in celebration as the young lad picked one of the finest or rather the finest batsman of the modern era.
