During the ongoing second Test between India and England, Virat Kohli got out for a duck on the magical delivery from Moeen Ali. The Indian skipper was shell-shocked after his dismissal, and even the umpire had to go upstairs to check whether the ball directly hit the stumps or not.
Later with the review, it became clear that the ball hit the top of the middle stump.
It was only the second time that Kohli had been bowled by an off-spinner in 89 Tests, while all-rounder Moeen savoured the perfect start to his first Test since August 2019.
Here’s the video:
Former England cricketer Michael Vaughan joked that the wicket was similar to his dismissal of batting legend Sachin Tendulkar in 2002.
