You would usually see bowlers staring at Virat Kohli in an attempt to rattle the modern great but on the opening day of the third Test, he was seen having a laugh with the Australian pacer Mitchell Starc.

Yes, it is a rare sight. The pitch at MCG wasn't assisting bowlers much and one of the deliveries in 87th over of the game, left both the cricketers shocked.

The length ball from Starc climbed so high that it beat the Australian wicket-keeper Tim Paine even though he tried to collect it after a jump. No one was expecting such a delivery after earlier in the day some of the deliveries of the same length kept under the knee.

Caught by surprise, the reaction from Kohli and Starc was priceless. Both burst into laughter seeing how the ball behaved. 

India, on day one, scored 215/2 in 89 overs and Kohli, along with Cheteshwar Pujara are batting on 47* and 68*, respectively.

Here is the video of the incident which shook everyone:
