After WTC heartbreak India started their final assignment of UK tour on 4th August, and It was the dream start for Kohli’s men as their premium fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah trapped Rory burns in front of the stumps for a duck in the first over of the innings.
Though some resilience showed by the English batsmen, Indian bowlers were very accurate to break the partnerships. Eventually, England bowled out for 183 runs.
Then in the batting Indian openers showed their class to score 97 runs together for the first wicket. But that wicket happened to be flood gate after that wickets were tumbling at one end as K L Rahul looks solid in the other end.
Indian Skipper who is in the search of his 71st international century, couldn’t resist himself to the James Anderson ball, attempted for a solid defense but was only able to nick the ball to the keeper. The dismissal looks like (2014 series) again he is having the problem like leaving the ball outside off stumps line.
Here we have shared some tweets about Kohli’s dismissal,
The last time when the Indian team toured England he didn’t give a single wicket to James Anderson, but this time he lost his wicket to Anderson on the very first ball he faced. That makes Anderson to take an early advantage in this series over Virat Kohli. For James Anderson concerned Kohli’s wicket is the 619th test wicket of his career which is equal to Anil Kumble’s wicket, now only two bowlers S Warne and M Muralitharan ahead of James Anderson in the wicket tally.
Indian Captain Virat Kohli is due for a century since November 2019 against visiting team Bangladesh in India, previously it was a piece of normal news when he scoring a century but for the last 20 months he couldn’t get a century. Kohli is not getting a century is a contradictory statement as far as concerned. Only time will answer when we will witness the century of Virat Kohli.
Still, time is there for Kohli to end his century drought, hope he will find his way to score centuries soon.
