King Kohli once again showed aggression to the opponents: In the final ball of the 20th over of India’s second innings in the ongoing Test tournament between India and Bangladesh, Mahedi Hasan Miraj, who was in fine form recently after dismissing Cheteshwar Pujara and Shubman Gill, took the turn.
Kohli committed to the front foot without taking into account the drift and turn, as he often does when hitting an off-spinner on a turning pitch. As soon as it spins, the inside edge of his bat collides with the ball and straight into the hands of Mominul Haque.
Mominul, who was fielding at forward short leg, advanced to take a catch there. Mominul had missed the catch of KL Rahul in the very first over off Shakib Al Hasan, so it was his penance.
But as soon as the catch was taken, the real drama started. With India now down to 37 for four chasing a target of 145 and Kohli’s wicket becoming crucial in the context of the game, the Bangladesh players started a frantic celebration which was understandable.
Kohli was not at all happy with the way the Bangladeshi players celebrated. He held his position for some time before facing the spirited Bangladesh fielders and hurling some abuses.
