The Twitter handle of the Punjab Cricket Association on Monday shared the pictures of Virat Kohli bowling in nets ahead of the first T20I. They captioned the pictures as “Look who’s opening bowling tomorrow”.

In the Mohali nets, Virat Kohli, who has four T20I wickets to his name, bowled the most to Axar Patel and nearly knocked the left-hander off his feet with a Bumrah-esque yorker, albeit at a much slower pace

In his T20I career, Virat Kohli has played 104 games and has managed to take four wickets. His four wickets in the shortest format of the game are Kevin Pietersen (2011), Samit Patel (2011), Mohammad Hafeez (2012), and Johnson Charles (2016).

Those who thought that have seen the last of Kohli’s bowling after he commented about his back injury in June 2019 were in for a surprise when in the recently-concluded Asia Cup.In the recently-concluded Asia Cup, Virat Kohli was seen bowling one over against Hong Kong in the group stage where he conceded six runs.

It was the first time that he was seen bowling in T20Is after the 2016 T20 World Cup semi-final against West Indies. Kohli recently came back into form and he struck his first international century in almost three years. The former Indian skipper registered his first T20I ton against Afghanistan in the Asia Cup.
