Virat Kohli got out after scoring 8 runs in the first ODI.
The India-New Zealand match is being played in Hyderabad.
New Delhi. Virat Kohli had scored 3 centuries in his last 4 innings before the first ODI against New Zealand, but the former Indian captain was clean bowled by Mitchell Santner for just 8 runs. In his last innings, Virat Kohli scored an unbeaten 166 against Sri Lanka in the last ODI of the series. In this match, India won by a big margin of 317 runs. The 34-year-old batsman looked to continue his form against New Zealand, but was dismissed early by Santner.
He himself could not believe the ball on which Virat Kohli was dismissed by Mitchell Santner. Virat Kohli’s stump was blown in Santner’s ball and the batsman kept watching standing dumbfounded. Virat’s response has sent social media into a tizzy as he stuns in front of the New Zealand spin wizard. This incident happened on the second ball of the 16th over of the match.
After losing the crucial wicket of first captain Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli was trying to build a partnership with young batsman Shubman Gill, but he was betrayed by Santner’s turning delivery. Santner’s ball got extra bounce from the surface and before Virat Kohli could understand anything, his stumps flew away. The former Indian captain tried to defend while going on his backfoot, but the ball flew past the stumps.
