On the eve of the second Test against South Africa in Pune, Indian players had an intense practice session, where Ravindra Jadeja outfoxed Virat Kohli with a brilliant delivery.
The India skipper didn’t look comfortable against Jadeja as the left-arm spinner got a ball to land on a length and skid through. Failing to pick up the length and bounce of the delivery, Kohli got bowled. It was certainly a rare sight given the Indian captain’s usual domination against the spinners.
Taking to Twitter, ESPNcricinfo shared a clip of the delivery with the caption: “Left-arm spinners around the world, are you watching?”
As per his high standards, Virat Kohli is having an average year in red-ball cricket in 2019. In four Tests this year, Kohli has aggregated only 210 runs at an average of 35 with two half-centuries.
During the first Test against South Africa at Vizag, Virat scored 20 and 31 not out across the two innings. He was dismissed by debutant Senuran Muthusamy in the first innings.
