Watch: Lightning-quick Virat Kohli fielding secures India wicket in Australia T20I

Virat Kohli was at his agile best against Australia at Nagpur
by Wisden Staff 2 minute read

Watch: Virat Kohli produced an electrifying bit of fielding against Australia at Nagpur to secure Cameron Green’s dismissal in the second T20I.

The dismissal occurred in the second over of the rain-curtailed T20I between India and Australia. The hosts won the toss and inserted the Aussies into bat. Green, who came into the game on the back of a splendid half-century in the opener, signalled his intentions early by smashing Axar Patel for a boundary off the first ball of the over. Incidentally, Kohli, who was fielding at long on for that delivery, dropped a tough chance, parrying the ball into the boundary cushions.

A couple of balls later, Kohli had his moment of redemption. Green hit the ball towards mid on before setting off for a single. The former India captain picked up the ball cleanly and fired an accurate throw at the stumps. The Australian was caught short of his ground and had to walk back to the pavilion.
