Kohli was seen in great rhythm. He scored his 27th half-century but after that he could not stay at the crease for long. Fast bowler Olly Robinson once again caught Virat in his net.
England Cricket shared a video of Virat on its official Twitter handle, in which the Indian captain was seen walking towards the pavilion in despair after being dismissed.
Kohli could not detect Robinson’s ball and the ball took the outer edge of the bat and got into the tales of wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow. In this way the half-century innings of the Indian captain came to an end. Robinson was successful in making Kohli his victim for the third time in the current series. After two years, Virat scored a half-century in two consecutive innings for the second time.
