India and Sri Lanka are locking horns with each other in the final Test of the two-match series at M.Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. The hosts, having taken an unassailable 1-0 lead, the Indian skipper, Rohit Sharma won the toss and opted to bat in the 2nd Test. However, they did not have the best of starts in the first session of the opening day, posting 93/4 before going for tea.
Just a couple of overs before the tea break, former India skipper, Virat Kohli, while batting on 23 off 47 balls, was shocked by the Chinnaswamy pitch behavior. The incident took place when Dhananjaya de Silva came to bowl the 28th over for the first time, and three balls later bowled a shortish length delivery.
Virat Kohli was looking to work the ball to leg after coming on the back foot, but due to lack of bounce, they just hit Virat inches above the ankle. The on-field umpire had no hesitation to give him out, as it looked dead in front of the wickets. Kohli could not believe what just happened, and he did not even move for a while, however, he was pretty clear that he was out and decided not to take the DRS call, and returned to the pavilion.
Here is the video of the dismissal of Virat Kohli:
