It may have been just for a few seconds, but the moment was enough to get circulated on social media. This isn't the first time Kohli was seen dancing during a match. He was spotted showing off his dance moves in T20 World Cup 2016 as well, on the song 'Gallan Goodiyan'.

Here is the video:

Kohli didn't come out to bat against Afghanistan and promoted Rishabh Pant and Hardik Pandya, the two power hitters, ahead of him to utilize the start provided by openers KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma. Rahul and Rohit had posted 140 runs for the first wicket before Pant and Hardik provided a good finish.

India’s batting unit posted the tournament’s highest total of 210/2 and restricted Afghanistan to 144/7 in their 20 overs.
