The Indian skipper, Virat Kohli has always been seen being intense on the field during the game. However, he gave fans a glimpse of the lighter side to his personality following India’s huge win by 10-wickets against England in the third Test. Hardik Pandya was interviewing Axar Patel — who starred in the match with 11 wickets under his belt — when Virat Kohli made a “special appearance”.

Axar Patel took a 5-fer on his debut

As Hardik tried to introduce his captain, Kohli made a remark in Gujarati, which left both Hardik and Axar Patel in splits. Here is the video of a funny incident: 

India registered a huge 10-wicket win against England in the third Test, which was held at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. England captain Joe Root won the toss and opted to bat in the day-night Test. The visitors were eventually bundled out for 112 in the first innings, with opener Zak Crawley (53) the highest run-scorer. Axar Patel was the pick of the bowlers, picking six wickets with Ravichandran Ashwin accounting for three dismissals.

England made a strong comeback, as they managed to bundle out the hosts for just 145 in their first innings. Rohit Sharma (66) was the leading run-scorer. Root was the pick of the bowlers for England, accounting for five wickets.

However, England failed to produce a better batting performance in the second innings as they were bowled out for 81. Axar Patel registered another five-wicket haul in the match, while Ravichandran Ashwin scalped four wickets, and became the fastest Indian bowler to surpass the tally of 400 Test wickets.

India chased down the meager target of 49 runs without much ado, taking a 2-1 lead in the four-match Test series. The hosts need to avoid a defeat in the final Test — also scheduled to be taking place at the Narendra Modi Stadium — in order to reach the final of the maiden edition of the World Test Championship (WTC). New Zealand has already qualified for the final.
