Sri Lanka Vs India 2017: Video – Virat Kohli Dismissed Cheaply At Colombo
Against the run of play on a sunny afternoon at Colombo, Indian skipper Virat Kohli was dismissed rather cheaply by Rangana Herath. Electing to bat first upon winning the toss, India were off to an absolutely flying start as Shikhar Dhawan along with a comeback man KL Rahul took the Sri Lankan bowlers by storm. Despite losing Dhawan for 35, Rahul went about his task and soon registered his sixth consecutive half century in as many innings, making him just the third Indian batsman to do so.
However, some poor running between the wickets from Rahul and Cheteshwar Pujara meant a horrible miscommunication, and the opener was sent back to the hut for 57. It was an opportunity dearly missed by Rahul as a century stood there for the taking.
In walked skipper Virat Kohli amidst high expectations, after his fluent century at Galle, in the second innings of the previous Test. Just as he got in, Kohli already looked quite impressive and was timing the ball to perfection.
With Pujara already steady at the other end and then Kohli getting his eye in and timing the ball sweetly, there seemed to be colossal trouble in store for the Sri Lankans. A wicket was desperately needed, and they just about got that.
On 13, Kohli looked to cut a quicker one from Rangana Herath, but only managed to get a thick edge, which was caught quite well in the first slip. Kohli let out an anguish upon seeing the catch being taken, and his wicket did open up the game. Below, is the video of Kohli getting dismissed.
