Bowlers hurling abuses and venting frustration to give send-offs have become a common occurrence on the cricket field nowadays but one can always expect the unexpected from a West Indian and Kesrick Williams has proved it with a never-seen-before as well as a hilarious send-off for Virat Kohli in the ongoing T20 at Sabina Park.
Fresh from the match-winning century in the final match of the ODI series, Kohli was looking well-set to play another big score. The India skipper began his innings with a four and had raced away to 29 off just 19 balls before Kesrick Williams came to bowl the last over of the powerplay. Kohli began the over in same fashion, hitting the first two balls for a six and a four, respectively but the right-arm pacer had the last laugh, as he dismissed the India batsman on the very next delivery.
Kohli made room for another big score but Williams cleverly took the pace off the ball at the last moment, deceiving the right-handed batsman who could only lob the ball as far as Sunil Narine at mid-on. And just when the ball landed in Narine’s hand, Williams gave the India skipper a hilarious send-off by looking at his palm and reacting as if he had a book in his hand before turning the pages and ticking something off.
