India made a rollicking start in the third Test against England at the renovated Motera Stadium on Wednesday. After the tourists won the toss and opted to bat first, they were bundled out for a paltry 112 in their first innings.

Spin bowling all-rounder Axar Patel bagged his second five-wicket haul and ended with figures of 6/38. Indian captain Virat Kohli was visibly happy with the way things went in home team’s favour on day one. His animated celebration after Joe Root’s dismissal got netizens talking.

It all happened in the 22nd over, when off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin got one to dip on Root from around the wicket. The English skipper made the mistake of hanging back as the ball gripped and turned to hit his front pad. The umpire had no hesitation in his mind to raise the finger.

Root, however, went for the DRS but replays showed the ball would have clipped a fair part of his leg stump. As Ashwin sent Root back to the pavilion, Kohli was all over the moon which was visible in his celebration. The Delhi-born cricketer decided to do the chainsaw celebration which is synonymous with his former RCB teammate Dale Steyn.

The South African bowling great is known to perform this celebration after picking up a wicket and Kohli did the same, showing his aggressive side.
