The outstanding form Virat Kohli is currently in, it will either need a mistake from the man himself or a moment of brilliance from the opposition to dismiss him and England all-rounder Ben Stokes provided it in both innings of the ongoing second Test at Vizag.
On a pitch, where other batsmen were finding it tough even to time the ball, the Indian captain was playing with utmost ease. After scoring 167 in the first innings, the right-handed batsman was looking destined to become the first Indian batsman to score centuries in both the innings of his 50th Test but a rare lapse of concentration saw him getting out on a well-made 81. The batting sensation could not stop himself from driving hard a flighted delivery from Adil Rashid but failed to connect properly and could only edge it to the slip cordon, where Ben Stokes made sure to make the chance count with an unbelievable effort. Displaying great reflexes, the all-rounder took a stunning one-handed catch while being airborne.
Watch the stunning catch:
Kohli was the seventh Indian wicket to fall. Last heard, the hosts were 162 for 8 with their overall lead extended to 362.
