India skipper Virat Kohli picked up his maiden wicket Down Under on the fourth day of the team’s practice match against Cricket Australia XI on Saturday.
Kohli scalped the wicket of centurion Harry Nielsen, who before getting dismissed had hammered nine boundaries in his 170-ball stay at the crease. Nielsen top-edged a delivery from Kohli and Umesh Yadav took the catch at mid-on. Kohli couldn’t believe his luck and celebrated emphatically after the batsman’s dismissal.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India uploaded the image on social media and the post read: “That moment when the Skip gets a wicket #TeamIndia #CAXIvsIND.”
Kohli had bowled few overs on the third day of the match as well and teammate Ravichandran Ashwin gave a hilarious reason why he opted to do so.
“Dishing out a lesson to all the bowlers about probably where you should bowl. Jokes apart, he just wanted to bowl a couple of overs because the bowlers were tiring out and before the second new ball came into play,” Ashwin said in a video which was posted by the BCCI.
Indian bowlers had a tough outing in the warm-up clash with the Cricket Australia XI batsmen scoring runs for fun and took a healthy first innings lead.
