Kohli wanted to show ‘magic’ like Joe Root… fans enjoyed

Published on

In the warm-up match against English club Leicestershire, Virat Kohli was trying to keep his bat straight on the ground without support.

Former Indian captain Virat Kohli has been yearning for big scores for the last two and a half years. Even in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 season, Kohli has not been able to get rid of his poor form. Now Kohli has gone on a tour of England with Team India, where he has to play a Test match.

Before this Test, a four-day warm-up match is being played between the Indian team and the English club Leicestershire from Thursday (June 23). In this warm-up match, captain Rohit Sharma won the toss and elected to bat first. After this, Team India lost its five wickets for 81 runs.

In such a situation, Virat Kohli came to the crease and he took the lead. Kohli started well, but once again missed a big score. He scored only 33 runs off 69 balls. During this, Kohli was seen copying former England captain Joe Root. This incident was caught in the camera, whose video is becoming fiercely viral on social media.

Kohli could not make the bat stand on the ground

Actually, Kohli was trying to make his bat stand straight on the pitch without any support. He tried this twice at different places, but could not succeed in doing it even once. Let us tell you that earlier this month, Joe Root kept his bat upright on the ground for a while during the Test match against New Zealand. That is, Root’s bat was standing on the ground without any support.

Kohli could not spell Root

Then Root’s video became quite viral. He was even called a magician by the fans. Now Kohli also tried to do the same magic for him, but he failed in it. In such a situation, Kohli was trolled fiercely by social media users. One user wrote – copy the same century as well.
