Former Indian captain and batting maestro Virat Kohli had a forgettable day on the field on Day 3 of the ongoing 2nd Test match against Bangladesh. Kohli dropped as many as 3 catches while fielding and also failed to perform with the bat.
Virat Kohli’s knock lasted only 22 balls before he was caught at short leg by Bangladesh fielder Mominul and he could only manage to score 1 before taking the long walk back to the pavilion. While he had an off-day at the field, he was also seen losing his cool and giving a mouthful to Taijul Islam.
Virat Kohli Lost His Cool
Well, the incident took place after Virat Kohli was dismissed for just one in the second innings off Mehidy Hasan Miraz. While he looked frustrated at the way he was dismissed, Taijul seemed to have said some words to the star Indian batter. Reacting to Taijul, angry Kohli charged towards the Bangladesh spinner with a mouthful before Shakib Al Hasan and the umpires walked in and controlled the situation. While Kohli was walking back, Shakib was seen calming down Taijul. It still isn’t known which player irked Kohli while he was on his way back to the pavilion.
The video of the same has been going viral on the internet. Watch it here:

Also, this was the 2nd time in less than 10 minutes that the Bangladesh players were seen celebrating Kohli’s dismissal. Just 2 overs back, the on-field umpire adjudged Virat Kohli out off Taijul Islam. The Indian batting maestro was confident that he had hit the ball and decided to review the decision right away. The replays also showed that Kohli had indeed made a contact with the ball and the on-field decision was reversed.
Talking about the game, the Indian cricket team is struggling badly while chasing the target of 145 runs. At the time of writing this article, team India needed 100 runs to win with the scoreboard reading 45/4.
