WATCH : Kohli turns international cricket into gully cricket in search for lost ball


Winning the toss and opting to field first, Bangladesh’s bowlers faced a determined onslaught from the Indian batsmen. Despite losing wickets at intervals, the Indian batters maintained an aggressive approach, with Hardik Pandya’s fifty guiding them to a total of 196 in 20 overs.

In response, Bangladesh struggled, reaching 110/6 in 16 overs, before Rishad Hossain delivered some powerful hits against Arshdeep Singh and Axar Patel, sending the ball flying into the LED advertisement boards.

On the final delivery of the 18th over, Arshdeep delivered an off-cutter wide of the stumps, which the right-handed batsman hammered over the deep mid-wicket for a six.

The ball eventually disappeared beneath an LED advertisement board, prompting Virat Kohli to chase after it. He crossed over the hoarding and retrieved the ball from underneath.

As he returned to the field, umpire Richard Kettleborough joined him, and their brief exchange sparked a buzz on Twitter.
