Video – Ben Stokes’ Animated Celebration After Virat Kohli’s Dismissal

Against the Odds: Virat Kohli bats for glory in modern batsmanship

After being put in to bat on a rather flat wicket, India got off to a disastrous start as star batsmen KL Rahul and Virat Kohli were dismissed early. Rahul got off the mark on the very first ball with a stunning boundary through the covers, but was later dismissed by the disciplined line of Chris Woakes.

On a delivery pitched on the fourth stump mark, Rahul nicked one to the slip cordon as his poor form in the series continued.

However, once Rahul was dismissed, in walked skipper Virat Kohli and was off and running straight away with two awe-inspiring boundaries. Both boundaries were hit off Chris Woakes as Kohli timed two half volleys to perfection.

However, tragedy struck again as Kohli too nicked one to the slip cordon on a delivery that was pitched too full. As soon as Kohli was dismissed, England all-rounder Ben Stokes set off in an animated celebration.

Fair to say, as of now, India seem to be in dire straits. A big partnership is the need of the hour for the hosts.

Below is the video which covers the dismissals of Rahul and Kohli, along with a couple of stunning boundaries.
