Indian skipper Virat Kohli was an out and out powerhouse in the outfield as he pulled off an absolute stunner during the final ODI against Australia in Bengaluru’s M Chinnaswamy Stadium on Sunday.
Fielding in the cover area during the 32nd over of the Australian innings, Virat Kohli dived across the full length and pulled off a spectacular catch to dismiss Marnus Labuschagne for 54 off 64 deliveries. The Indian skipper had earlier prevented a boundary in the same over when he dived to his left hand side as he stopped Labuschagne from finding the gap.
“Went for the drive and Virat Kohli moved and then dived in the right direction. Fantastic catch that. This is a stunning catch”, said a commentator on air.
At the same time, Australia put up 286/9 runs on the board in their stipulated 50 overs, thanks to Steve Smith’s ninth ODI hundred. Mohammed Shami was the highest wicket taker for India with 4 wickets.
