The Indian skipper, Virat Kohli was dismissed on a five-ball duck as England registered an 8-wicket win in the 1st T20 International to take a 1-0 lead in the five-match series. Having been rapped on the gloves by a Jofra Archer bouncer in the previous over, Kohli decided to play a lofted drive to Adil Rashid by going inside-out but ended up lobbing the ball up to Chris Jordan at mid-off, who took a simple catch.

Uttarakhand Police came up with a witty tweet soon after his dismissal, citing the Indian skipper’s example to advise readers against rash driving.

The Uttarakhand Police tweeted a picture of Virat Kohli walking off the pitch, with his helmet still on, with a message in Hindi that read: “Just wearing a helmet is not enough. It’s imperative to drive with total concentration, or you can also get out on zero like Kohli.”

Chasing a modest target of 125, the visiting team went over the line in the 16th over. Jason Roy top-scored for the visitors, scoring 49 runs at the top to lay the foundation for an easy chase. With only 124 runs to defend, India needed early wickets to stand to get back into the game. Jason Roy led the chase, smashing 49 off 32 deliveries. Roy hit four boundaries and three sixes, before being trapped leg-before by Washington Sundar.

Team India came up with a poor batting display as the visitors had decided to bowl first. The Men in Blue could only manage 124 for 7 in the allotted 20 overs. Eoin Morgan’s decision to bowl first was justified by his bowlers as it difficult for the Indian top-order to survive.
