Virat Kohli and mischief are two things that go together pretty well. We have seen Kohli being himself in the field while batting and fielding. He can do anything to be in the opposition’s mind and lighten up the fans’ mood and the players. We have seen Kohli dance on numerous occasions on and off the field. A popular video of his that got viral, of him dancing in Yuvraj Singh’s wedding ceremonies. His dancing video at his wedding is also one that the fans were in awe of when it got released. It is fair to say Kohli and his dancing skills are the real things to watch out for. A similar instance occurred yesterday when India was fielding during the World Test Championship final against New Zealand.
India and New Zealand are competing against each other in the final of the inaugural edition of the World Test Championship final. The first day of the test was thoroughly washed out, and day two got only about 60 overs of play. Finally, the fans and players were hopeful of clear skies without any bad light, which happened on day three. India got bundled out for a mere 217 and was looking forward to their bowlers getting a wicket. Indian bowlers were having a tough time getting a wicket, and that’s when Kohli energized the team and the fans around the world, tuning into the game with his bhangra performance. This incident occurred in the ninth over of the New Zealand innings. Since then, his bhangra video has gone viral and has turned the mood of the dressing room a whole lot lighter. The match still hangs in the balance, and both the teams would be looking for some edge over the other in this mega match-up. Kohli was one of the top performers in the star-studded batting line-up but got out on 44 to the tall New Zealand pacer and his RCB teammate Kyle Jamieson. According to his standards, it is a poor score, and he would be looking to score past it in the second innings.

Virat Kohli has shown us more than once what he can do in the dance arena. People would be looking forward to more of his techniques while watching the match but at the same time would be hopeful that India and Kohli win the all-important match for their team.
