Indian skipper Virat Kohli, arguably the best batsman in the world right now, tried his hand at bowling during team’s four-day practice match against Cricket Australia XI at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
On the third day, Kohli bowled two overs as other Indian bowlers failed to make an impact. He was finally rewarded on the final day of the match as he dismissed CA XI wicketkeeper-batsman Harry Nielsen, who skied a half-tracker and ended up giving a simple catch to Umesh Yadav at mid-on.
After taking the wicket, the 30-year-old looked bemused, celebrated wildly pumping his fists in the air and high-fiving his teammates.

India will face-off Australia in a four-match Test series before playing a three-match ODI series in January next year. The first Test between the two teams will be played at the Adelaide Oval starting December 6.
