IND vs SL: Dhananjaya De Silva Gets Rid Of Virat Kohli, Leaves Him Stunned

IND vs SL: Team India are locking horns with the Sri Lankan cricket team in the second and final Test match at M Chinnaswamy Stadium

IND vs SL: Team India are locking horns with the Sri Lankan cricket team in the second and final Test match at M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. Earlier, India won the first Test with ease.

The hosts won the first Test by an innings and 222 runs. Rightly so, they took a 1-0 lead in the two-match Test series. Ravindra Jadeja who scored 175 and took 9 wickets was named the Man of the Match.

Meanwhile, talking about the second Test, India won the toss and opted to bat first on a dry wicket in the pink-ball affair. Sri Lankan bowlers who were left clueless in the first Test turned up the ante in the deciding match.

They got off to a scintillating start by getting rid of all the key batsmen for cheap scores. Lasith Embuldeniya wreaked havoc on India’s batting department as he got rid of Rohit Sharma (15), Rishabh Pant (39) and Ravindra Jadeja (4).

Meanwhile, Dhananjaya de Silva got the prized wicket of Virat Kohli in the 28th over. The former Indian captain has long been criticized for his inability to score a century in international cricket for more than 2 years.

His last international century came against Bangladesh in a pink-ball Test match back in 2019. Since then, he hasn’t scored a ton across formats. When Kohli was expected to dictate terms in this pink-ball Test, he ended up getting dismissed for 23.

Virat Kohli got off to a steady start by taking singles. He scored 2 boundaries to his name. When he was batting on 23, Kohli was literally taken aback by the behaviour of the Chinnaswamy pitch.

The incident took place when Dhananjaya was brought into the attack in the 28th over for the first time. Just three balls later, he pitched in with a short-length ball to Virat Kohli.

The former Indian skipper tried to hit it towards the leg side after coming on the back foot. However, due to lack of bounce on offer, it hit him inches above the ankle. Meanwhile, the on-field umpire raised his finger.

Meanwhile, Virat Kohli didn’t move for a moment as he just couldn’t believe what had happened in the blink of an eye. Needless to say, he didn’t take the review and made his way back to the dressing room.
