The Indian skipper and one of the best batsman in the world Virat Kohli tried his hand at bowling during India’s four-day warm-up match against Cricket Australia XI at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Friday.
On the third day, as other bowlers failed to make an impact and get a wicket he himself bowled two overs and he was finally able to break the partnership on the final day of the match as he dismissed South Australian wicketkeeper-batsman Harry Nielsen, who gave a simple catch to Umesh Yadav at mid-on.
After taking the wicket, the captain looked somewhat embarrassed, then celebrated wildly, pumping his fists in the air and high-fiving his teammates.
Virat Kohli has eight wickets to his name in international cricket and West Indian batsman Johnson Charles was his last victim during a World T20 match against the Windies in 2016.
The first Test between India and Australia will be played at the Adelaide Oval on Thursday.
