Virat Kohli was seen enjoying his time on the field following India’s thrilling win over Afghanistan in the 3rd T20I at the M.Chinnaswamy Stadium. From doing the “Moye Moye” dance to sliding on the ground, Kohli was expressing himself to the fullest.
A high-scoring encounter, wherein India and Afghanistan both scored 212 runs, went into two Super Overs, with the hosts managing to clinch the game in the second Super Over and sealing the series 3-0.
Even though Virat Kohli didn’t trouble the scorers with the bat—he was out for a golden duck for the first time in his T20I career—the 35-year-old was simply sensational in the field. He took a brilliant catch of Najibullah Zadran after he had made a great effort to save five runs for his team by parrying a ball that was headed for a six back into the playing field.
