After his wicket, the former India skipper was spotted exposing his anger in the dressing room and the video of the same has gone viral. He also hit the seat where he was sitting with his hand.
Kohli came out to bat when India lost Shubman Gill and he played a total of 8 deliveries. In the ninth over of the game, he wanted to hit it over the top against David Willey but then he miscued it completely and failed to find the distance. Ben Stokes, who was placed at mid-off, grabbed an easy catch.
Talking about the game between India and England, Jos Buttler won the toss and asked India to bat first in Lucknow. The Indians had a below-average start as they lost Shubman Gill and Virat Kohli in quick intervals. Iyer was the next one who got dismissed. Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul are currently batting at the crease and will look to power India to a decent total against England on Sunday.
