WATCH: Virat Kohli’s cracking shot almost hits the umpire

In the one-off T20I played between Sri Lanka and India at R. Premadasa Stadium, Colombo, Virat Kohli hit a cracking straight drive in Lasith Malinga‘s over with extreme power.

The ball went straight towards the umpire Ruchira Palliyaguruge but thankfully, he evaded it and gave a giant smile after getting up from the turf.

The whole scenario looked deadly at that moment. Even the slow-motion replay couldn’t get the speed of the ball such was the power behind the shot struck by the Indian skipper.
