Indian captain Virat Kohli generally doesn’t prefer to hide his emotions both on and off the field. The 29-year-old is full of passion and expresses himself without caring about his surroundings. India are currently playing a five-match ODI series against the Windies and are 1-0 up in the series. Kohli’s individual performance has been outstanding.
The Delhi-born cricketer has notched 297 runs in the first two encounters at an incredible average of 297. In the last match in Visakhapatnam, he racked up 157 runs to help the Men in Blue to 321/6 in the allotted 50 overs. In the meantime, Kohli accomplished 10,000 runs in the 50-overs format and became the fastest batsman to reach the milestone.
Kohli pouches Hetmyer
Moreover, he also brought up 1,000 ODI runs in the current calendar year. After the home team put up the massive score, the Windies didn’t die wondering during the run chase. They lost three early wickets, but left-hander Shimron Hetmyer petrified the Indians with some lusty hitting. He came to bat in the 13th over and scored 94 balls from 64 deliveries.
During his knock, he smacked four boundaries and clobbered seven sixes. His partnership of 153 runs with Shai Hope laid the platform for a Windies victory. After his jaw-dropping century in Guwahati, he was set to score his second ton, but leg break bowler Yuzvendra Chahal accounted for his wicket. The southpaw tried to heave the ball on to the leg side.
The leather went high into the air off a leading edge and skipper Kohli didn’t make any mistake in pouching the ball cleanly. He was excited after taking the catch, understanding the importance of the wicket. He pumped his fists and screamed with valour. On the other hand, Hetmyer walked back dejected, having failed to score another century.
