Taking the wicket of India’s Test team captain Virat Kohli is every bowler’s dream. If a bowler gets his wicket in his Test debut, what better dream debut than this. South African fast bowler Marco Jensen made his International Test debut against India in the Centurion Test. He dismissed Virat Kohli in the second innings. In the second innings of the Boxing Day Test, Jansson ended Virat’s innings for 18 runs.
In the second innings, after the lunch-break, Virat tried to drive Jenson’s delivery. The ball took the outer edge of his bat and went straight into the gloves of wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock. He was very happy to get Virat’s wicket. Its effect was visible on the performance of the 21-year-old young bowler. He took 4 wickets in the second innings. Very few people know that when India came to South Africa in the year 2018, Marco Jensen bowled to Virat in the practice session. Virat had praised him a lot then. Proving what Virat had said, he impressed everyone with his debut.
