After winning the toss at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad in the third Test against India, nothing went in favor of England as they lost four wickets in the first session itself as they went into the tea break with their score of 80 for 4. However, it was a moment of celebration by the Indian skipper, Virat Kohli which caught the attention of the netizens.
After losing the toss, the veteran pacer, Ishant Sarma, who is playing his 100th Test drew the first blood for the hosts in his second over itself. However, the England team was slowly and steadily coming back into the match with a partnership building by their skipper Joe Root and opening batsman Zak Crawley.
With the introduction of Ravichandran Ashwin in the innings, Team India looked back in control. But, Root was playing Ashwin with all cautiousness. It was not until Ashwin changed his ploy to around the wicket that the England captain failed to deceive. As Ashwin got one to turn sharply after pitching, Root was trapped in front of the stumps as the Indian team appealed.
The umpire had no hesitancy in asking Root to go back to the pavilion though that the ball might be missing the leg stump. However, as soon as the umpire gave him out, the Indian skipper Virat Kohli, who was standing quite close to the pitch started celebrating aggressively, something for which he is known.
In the first Test of the series, Kohli had said that he felt the team was a little flat which played a crucial reason in their loss. However, since the second Test, Kohli and his team haven’t set a foot wrong. We can see Virat Kohli celebrating in his gala way and giving send-offs to the opposition batsmen. The video of Kohli celebrating Root’s dismissal was shared by a fan on Twitter.
