The second warm-up match of the Indian cricket team, which was against Australia turned out to be a full-on entertainer. First, it was Rohit Sharma who was seen as leading the team as a skipper, on the other hand, Virat Kohli raised a lot of eyebrows after he took over the bowling duties during India’s warm-up match against Australia in Dubai on Wednesday.
Virat was handed the ball in the seventh over when Glenn Maxwell and Steve Smith were at the crease for the Australian side. In the 12 balls that Virat Kohli delivered, he only gave away 12 runs and emerged out as one of the most efficient bowlers on the Indian side.
Kohli kickstarted his bowling spell with a great note, giving away just four runs from his opening over. And this time, Kohli went for eight runs with Marcus Stoinis hitting him for a boundary on one of his deliveries.
While he was brilliant with the ball, but there was a moment in the match when Australia’s star batsman Steve Smith, who was on strike at that time was completely thrown off by Virat Kohli. Later, Kohli was brought back in the 13th over of the game.
Steve Smith was left shocked by the fact that Virat Kohli was getting some decent swing. He also couldn’t help but make fun of Virat Kohli’s ‘unorthodox’ bowling action.
Both the modern legends of the game — Virat Kohli and Steve Smith, share a great bond of friends. Therefore, the incident was taken lightly by the fans and the Indian skipper. The video of the moment has been going viral on the internet. Here, watch the video.:
