Watch: Moeen Ali bowls Virat Kohli through the gate with dream off-spinner’s delivery

by Wisden Staff 1 minute read

Moeen Ali dismissed Virat Kohli with a beauty during an IPL 2022 clash between Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore on Wednesday.

Kohli, who struggled for momentum during his 33-ball 30, was cleaned up by Moeen with a sharp-turning delivery in the 10th over of RCB’s innings at Pune. Trying to play across the line, Kohli failed to make contact as the ball snuck in-between bat and pad.

Moeen has had previous success against Kohli: during England’s tour of India last year, the off-spinner clean bowled the 33-year-old twice, once in the second Test at Chennai and then in the third ODI at Pune.

Moeen has accounted for Kohli 10 times in international cricket – no bowler has taken the India batter’s wicket  on more occasions across all three forms.
