Anderson gets Kohli again : memories of 2014 horror series coming back for Virat
India was bouyant after their sensational win at Lords , the win coming after a draw at Nottingham when India’s winning chances on the last day was spoiled by rains.
After a long spell of losing tosses ,Kohli won the toss and batted at Leeds in the 3rd test. He wanted to put runs on the board. Interestingly Joe Root said at the toss that he would have bowled first.
India started poorly losing Rahul (0) in the fist over to an attempted drive to an Anderson outswinger. Soon , a shaky Pujara (1) nicked another Anderson outswinger for Buttler’s 2nd catch . India 4/2.
Kohli came in had a 17 run stand with Rohit who was playing solidly, leaving all outswingers. Kohli too initially was leaving the Anderson outswingers well but the killer delivery soon came when Anderson bowled inches fuller and as Kohli (7) shaped to drive , the ball took the nick for Buttler’s 3rd catch. Anderson already had 3/6 and India reeling at 21/3.
This is the 2nd time Anderson dismissed Kohli in this series in similar fashion. In the first test it was a 1st ball dismissal. The latest Kohli dismissal video shared by ECB , has been trending in the tweeter and the English fans are over the moon.
