During the Asia Cup 2023 match against Nepal on Monday, September 4, Virat Kohli, the renowned Indian cricket star, was spotted grooving to the popular Nepali song ‘Kutu Ma Kutu.’ Kohli, known for his on-field dance routines as a means to stay relaxed, brought his signature moves to the game against Nepal.
Notably, ‘Kutu Ma Kutu’ is among Nepal’s most celebrated songs, with its music video garnering a remarkable 193 million views on YouTube since its upload six years ago.
During the Asia Cup 2023 match between India and Nepal at Pallekele International Cricket Stadium, the DJ spun the track. An enthusiastic fan seized the moment when Virat Kohli hit the dance floor and promptly shared the clip on social media platform X.
Nepalese fans are in high spirits at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium, witnessing history as it marks the inaugural men’s international cricket encounter between India and Nepal at the senior level. Nepal made an impressive start, swiftly accumulating 65 runs during the powerplay overs. Nonetheless, their momentum waned following the dismissal of opener Kushal Bhurtel.
In the initial seven deliveries of the match, the Indian bowlers, Mohammed Shami and Mohammed Siraj, came incredibly close to dismissing the two Nepalese openers. Shami managed to induce an outside edge from Bhurtel’s bat, but the catch was missed in the slip cordon by Shreyas Iyer.
On the very next ball, Aasif Sheikh misjudged a delivery from Mohammed Siraj, sending it towards short cover where Virat Kohli attempted the catch. However, Kohli’s timing in the jump wasn’t perfect, resulting in a dropped chance. As of the latest update, Aasif remains at the crease, having amassed 45 runs from 76 balls.
