Although Indian captain Virat Kohli is so aggressive on the field but during the third match of the India-Sri Lanka Test Series he showed the game spirit on Monday (December 4th) and Ravichandran Ashwin was bowling. Sri Lankan captain Dinesh Chandimal, batting at 110 runs in the 116th over, tried to steal a single, Virat Kohli stopped him with his dive.

But what happened after that can only be said unfortunate. Since Dinesh Chandimal was out of the crease, Virat was looking to hit the stumps. But Kohli's throw hit Sadeera Samarawickrama.

Kohli knew that the ball hit Sadeera very badly hit by the throw so he apologized to him openly. He also said that he wanted to hit the stumps, not him. After this, Kohli himself went to Samarawikkrama and apologized.

The Sri Lankan batsman also showed a sense of humor while smiling towards Kohli. People are praising Indian skipper for this behavior on social media.

On the first day of this Test match, Murali Vijay also hit the ball on Samarawickrama's helmet when he was fielding on the shot leg.

It is important that the Indian bowlers, failing in the first two seasons of the third day of the third test match played on Feroz Shah Kotla ground, have made a great comeback in the last session, once again pushing Sri Lanka into a backfoot.

Here is the video going viral on internet:
