One can’t really keep Virat Kohli away from showing his brilliance to the world and he does it again in the second T20I against West Indies as he was responsible for giving us the most sensational pieces of fielding last night at Greenfield International Stadium in Thiruvananthapuram.
Well, it was indeed a bad day for the Indian fielders as they failed to stop the West Indies from nearing the target, but Virat Kohli showed how its done with his brilliance in fielding.
The Indian skipper failed to replicate his form, which he showed in the first match, as he was dismissed on 19 runs only. But the masterclass of Virat Kohli continued as the skipper took an incredible catch on the boundary to dismiss Shimron Hetmyer.
It was in the 14th over of the match, Shimron Hetmyer gave charge, he smashed two consecutive sixes off Ravindra Jadeja. The Indian skipper ran in from the outfield to have a chat with Jadeja just before the delivery which resulted in the stunning catch.
The ball smashed by Hetmyer was looking to cross the boundary ropes before Virat Kohli decided to do what he does best. He ran across to his right from long-on, stretched all parts of his body and caught the ball with both hands. Though the momentum saw Kohli slide on the field but he managed to keep himself from touching the boundary ropes.
Watch the video:
Soon after the stunning catch, social media was flooded with amazing reactions on the stunning catch taken by the Indian skipper. Fans couldn’t stop praising the brilliance of Virat Kohli and his fitness.
