India and Australia are locking horns with each other in the second game of the three-match series at the VCA stadium in Nagpur. The Indian stalwart, Virat Kohli pulled off a brilliant run-out in the rain-curtailed game to get the wicket of Cameron Green in just the second over of the game. On the previous delivery, he had dropped a difficult catch in the deep of the same batsman following a great running effort.

After over two hours of delay to the toss, the match was declared to be restricted to eight overs a side ensuring an action-filled encounter. Earlier in the game, the Indian skipper, Rohit Sharma won the toss and decided to bowl first. After Hardik Pandya had conceded 10 runs in the first over, Rohit Sharma handed the ball to Axar Patel.

Off the very first delivery, Cameron Green decided to have a go right away and attempted a massive slog over long-on. However, the ball didn’t quite catch the middle of the bat and went soaring into the night sky. Virat Kohli was determined to take the catch and in a fierce chase he almost got to it with a dive but the ball didn’t stick and eventually trickled away to the boundary.

However, it didn’t take long for Virat Kohli to redeem himself. On the third ball of the same over, Green edged a ball towards mid-on and rushed towards the non-striker’s end. The ever-vigilant Kohli got to the ball in a flash and in typical fashion, slung it like a tracer bullet towards the stumps.

Even though it slightly missed the target, the ball hit Axar’s hands and stumbled onto the stumps, dislodging the bails with green well short of the crease. The former skipper wheeled away in celebration to hand the Men in Blue a crucial breakthrough while producing a fielding effort for the ages.
