10 Best Tweets On Martin Guptill’s Brilliant Catch To Dismiss Virat Kohli: Virat Kohli once again showed why he is the best batsman in the world, in every format of the game. In the opening match of the ongoing 5-match T20I series against New Zealand, Virat Kohli batted in his trademark fluent style and made Kiwis’ bowling attack look very ordinary in their own backyard.
Right from the first ball he faced, Virat looked completely at ease and timed the ball to perfection. He played shots all across the ground and anchored the Indian innings while chasing a daunting tota. Making full use of the batting-friendly conditions and a quick outfield, Kohli scored boundaries at regular intervals. However, it took a brilliant catch from Martin Guptill to end his innings and put India on the backfoot.
Virat Kohli played a lofted shot looking for a six over mid-wicket but Martin Guptill ran hard and dived forward to pull off a stunning catch. It was dipping very quickly and he grabbed it just inches over the ground to send the Indian captain Virat Kohli back to the pavilion.
Martin Guptill is one of the best fielders in the world and Twitterati were in awe of his catch. Many fans said that his catch reminded them of the heart-breaking run out of MS Dhoni in the semi-final. It was Guptill’s brilliance on the field that led to Dhoni’s fall in the match and broke the hearts of millions of Indian cricket fans.
Twitterati were stunned by Martin Guptill’s brilliance and here are the 10 best tweets on his outstanding catch to dismiss Virat Kohli:

Absolute blinder of a catch by the low flying Guptill gets rid of Kohli and NZ are back in with a sniff. Pressure on Dube and Iyer now. Seen them fall apart when their leaders don't see things through before… #NZvIND
