Virat Kohli tries to make bat stand like Joe Root: Indian team is currently on tour of England. Team India has to play the only Test match against the host team from July 1 and the team has also started preparing for it. Team India is playing a practice match against Leicestershire before the only rescheduled Test match against England. Electing to bat after winning the toss, Team India scored 246 runs for the loss of 8 wickets on the first day. During the match, once again everyone’s eyes were on King Kohli.
Virat Kohli, who came out to bat at number four after the poor performance of the upper order batsmen, took over one end. Before getting out, Kohli faced 69 balls and scored 33 runs with the help of 4 fours and 1 six. During this innings, he was seen copying Joe Root in the camera.
Kohli was not trying to copy Root’s batting skills but his magic. Actually, during the recent New Zealand series, a video of Joe Root went viral, this English player made the bat stand upright without any support at the non-striker’s end. King Kohli also tried to do the same during the practice match but he could not succeed. The video of this incident is becoming very viral on social media.
Talking about the Indian innings, the upper order batsmen gave a disappointing start. India had lost 4 wickets for 55 runs, while half the team returned to the pavilion at 81. Gill scored 25, Rohit 21, but Vihari (3), Iyer (0) and Jadeja (13) returned cheaply. Kohli was supported by KS Bharat during this and he is present at the crease after scoring 70 not out till the end of the first day.
