Maxwell and Smith mock Virat Kohli after his dismissal on day 3 of Test 3 :- Ranchi: On the 2nd day of 3rd Test between India and Australia, the Indian skipper Virat Kohli injured during the fielding in the match. The injury of the Indian skipper would make headlines the entire day with conflicting reports emerging of his predicament.
The questions were still left unanswered by the end of the second day over whether Kohli would play the match in next three days. The good news for the Indian team was that Virat Kohli would be allowed to bat at any position he chose.
After Murali Vijay departed on the stroke of lunch, all eyes were on the Indian dressing room to see their leader – Virat Kohli. When the match resumed, he was taking strike at number 4.
In the 81st over, Cheteshwar Pujara played a fine stroke towards deep midwicket which look destined for the boundary. But, Glenn Maxwell prevented the boundary in a heroic effect. Maxwell put in the dive in the same place that Kohli had earlier injured his shoulder.
On the very next ball, Kohli went hard at a good length delivery outside off stump from Pat Cummins, it took the outside edge and flew to his opposing number, Smith, who took a great catch.
The whole Australian team celebrate before completing an incredibly hard catch, followed by his gestures to send off Virat Kohli.
Definitely, Steven Smith has the upper hand over Virat Kohli. Both, in terms of numbers in this series as well as the mental edge.
