Watch: The Taijul Islam Catch That Made Even Virat Kohli Grin After His Wicket
by RupinK 2 minute read

Watch: Virat Kohli was seen sporting a near grin after Taijul Islam dismissed him with a blinder in a Test in 2019.

The catch from Islam ended Kohli’s 136-run stay at the crease. Interestingly, it remains the last international century registered by the India skipper.

Kohli, who had been trying to accelerate the scoring late in India’s first innings, tried to hit Ebadat Hussain for the boundary behind square leg. While it seemed like the ball would land in a safe zone, Taijul Islam leapt up high and twisted his body in the air to complete a stunning grab. Even Kohli had a grin on his face after the extraordinary effort.
