Virat Kohli is someone who carries his emotion on his sleeves and never shies away from giving back his piece of mind to bowlers. On this occasion, the former India captain was spotted schooling a fan who allegedly bothered youngster Kamlesh Nagarkoti during the ongoing warm-up game against Leicestershire.

In a widely circulated video on social media, Kohli can be seen shutting down a supporter for his behaviour towards the young quick. The fan was continuously asking Nagarkoti for a picture. The 22-year-old Indian isn't a part of the squad but travelling with the team as a net bowler.

The fan mentioned that he had taken a leave from his job for the game and he deserved a picture with Nagarkoti. "I've been continuously asking for a photo. I came here after taking the day off from my office. So, I've been calling Nagarkoti to click a photo with me at least," he said. Kohli responded with, “He is here to play the match, and not to click photos."

Talking about the four-day warm-up match at Uptonsteel Cricket Ground, the Indian team took a healthy lead on the third day, thanks to openers Srikar Bharat and Shubman Gill adding 62 runs for the first wicket.

Bharat scored 43 while Shubman gathered 38 to extend the visiting team's lead. Hanuma Vihari and Shreyas also chipped in with 20 and 30 runs respectively. Bharat had also scored 70 in the first innings when India declared on 246 for eight.

In the first innings, Kohli hit 33 off 69 balls and featured five boundaries, including one big six off Prasidh Krishna, with the flamboyant batter looking in reasonable touch before being trapped in-front by Roman Walker.

Walker went on to pick a five-wicket haul while Will Davis added a couple of plucks under his belt.

In response, Rishabh Pant shone with the bat for Leicestershire. The maverick wicketkeeper-batter scored 76, helping the English side reach 244. Pant and Walker put on a much-needed partnership to take the team beyond the 150-run mark.
