Virat Kohli starred with the bat during India’s innings in the ongoing first ODI against Sri Lanka at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium, Guwahati.
Batting at No. 3, the former skipper slammed 113 off 87 balls, propelling the hosts to a mammoth 373/7 in their allotted 50 overs.
As always, Kohli relied on singles and doubles to build his innings. Once he got set, the veteran batter also hit a number of boundaries and eventually returned with 12 fours and 1 six.
Another highlight of Virat Kohli’s knock was the death stare he gave to Hardik Pandya when the all-rounder denied him a second run.
The incident happened in the 43rd over of India's innings. Kohli nudged the length delivery from Kasun Rajitha behind square on the on-side and rushed for a quick single. He was keen to take the second run and was almost halfway through before Hardik sent him back.
Kohli wasn't pleased with the call from Hardik, giving him a death stare and the latter avoided eye contact with the former.
