Playing at Lord’s is certainly a great experience for any cricket team as it is the Home of Cricket and presently the Indian team is facing England here in the second test match of the 5-match test series. The Indian skipper Virat Kohli lost the toss once again and the English captain Joe Root invited the visitors for batting first. The Indian team posted a decent total of 364 runs in the first innings and the hosts also put up a good show by scoring 391 in response.
While it was KL Rahul who played a beautiful knock of 129 runs for his Indian team, the English skipper led from the front and scored 180 runs not out. In fact, it won’t be wrong to say that Joe Root may have completed his double ton if any other batsman had stayed on the crease for some more time.
As far as the Indian skipper Virat Kohli is concerned, he disappointed once again as he got out on 42 runs in the first innings and made only 20 runs in the second innings when his team needed him on the crease for longer time. However, he is quite an energetic and enthusiastic person whether he is on-the-field or off-the-field and he doesn’t let his failures affect his confidence.
During the match also, he was seen having good time with his teammates and staff members in the balcony of Lord’s. It felt as if Virat Kohli was in a good mood and wanted to make people around him happy by doing Nagin dance.
Here is the viral photo in which Virat Kohli is seen in the pose of Nagin dance:
