Former Indian skipper and batting superstar Virat Kohli once again failed to live up to his stature on the first day of the third Test against Australia in Indore. He could score only 22 runs off 52 balls with only 2 boundaries to his name. But apart from his activities with the bat, Kohli attracted the headlines for something unexpected on the field.
Notably, he was spotted dancing during the 13th over of the innings in the first Australian innings. It happened when Ravichandran Ashwin was bowling to Usman Khawaja and Kohli was fielding in the slip cordon. The latter started dancing which was caught on camera and the video of this moment immediately went viral over social media within minutes of being shared by a Twitter user.
Subsequently, the fans couldn’t resist reacting to this video with some hilarious and interesting responses. They took to Twitter to pour out a bit of humor and creativity on Kohli’s dance amidst the action of the match.
Here’s how fans reacted to the dance of Virat Kohli:
Iske head space me ghusna hai ek baar 😂 kabhi bhi dance nikal jaata hai inka

Speaking of the action of the match after the stumps of day 1, the visitors ended the opening day of the third Test with a lead of 47 runs in the first innings in response to India’s total of only 109 runs in the first innings. Australia had lost four wickets on the score of 156 runs at the end of day 1. Star all-rounder and veteran spinner, Ravindra Jadeja has scalped all these four wickets for India.
Earlier, the bowling attack of Australia proved the hosts’ skipper’s decision of batting first wrong, as they bundled up them only on the score of 109 runs. Young bowler Matthew Kuhnemann scalped his Test career’s first five-wicket haul by scalping five wickets at the cost of only 16 runs.
Other than Kuhnemann, senior spinner Nathan Lyon also scalped three wickets alongside the one wicket claimed by Todd Murphy.
Notably, Rohit Sharma’s men are currently leading the four-Test series by a margin of 2-0 owing to the convincing wins in the first and second Test in Nagpur and Delhi respectively.
