Team India registered a dominating win against West Indies by a huge margin of 125 runs. After winning the toss, the Indian skipper, Virat Kohli decided to bat first. However, India suffered an early loss of deputy skipper, Rohit Sharma and he was visibly disappointed while walking back to the pavilion after adjudged caught behind at Old Trafford in Manchester.
The Indian team was in a spot of bother again in this game after the dismissal of Kedar Jadhav as they were reeling at 140/4 in almost 29 overs. However, Virat Kohli (72 off 82 balls) and MS Dhoni (56 off 61 balls) sailed the sinking boat of the team followed by a cameo by Hardik Pandya (46 off 38 balls). The late flourish of Dhoni helped the team to reach the total of 268/7 in their quota of 50 overs.
Kohli is often seen having fun on-the-field and in this game, he did a semi Cottrell celebration. Windies pacer Sheldon Cottrell has been grabbing headlines for his ‘salute’ celebration. Virat was spotted attempting a Cottrell celebration. Kohli was spotted doing that while India was on the field trying to defend a challenging 268.
