WATCH : Kohli chases outside off delivery as Naseem draws first blood


After a rain delay, Babar Azam won the toss and chose to field first. Play briefly resumed with Rohit Sharma smashing a six off Shaheen Afridi in the first over, before rain returned to halt proceedings again.

Once the match resumed, Naseem Shah took the ball from the opposite end and delivered for his captain by claiming the first wicket.

In the second over, Virat Kohli, having already hit a boundary off the first ball, attempted to chase another delivery outside off-stump.

This time, he tried to cut a good-length ball from Naseem that swung away after gripping the surface. Kohli failed to middle the shot, and the ball went straight to Usman Khan at point, who held onto the catch firmly.

Kohli, who has a history of getting out chasing wide deliveries, threw his wicket away on this occasion as well. The sight of the 35-year-old succumbing to a loose shot ignited a flurry of reactions on Twitter.
