Virat Kohli wicket today: The former Indian captain had to walk back to the pavilion after registering a single-digit score.

During the second T20I of the ongoing India’s tour of England in Birmingham, England batter Dawid Malan excelled on the field to send former India captain Virat Kohli back to the pavilion.

It all happened right after the powerplay when Kohli top-edged a delivery from debutant England fast bowler Richard Gleeson. Kohli, who wanted to hoic a delivery delivery pitched outside the off-stump towards long-on, ended up top-edging the ball between backward point and third-man.

Running behind from backward point, Malan put on display a terrific fielding performance to dismiss Kohli. Slightly confused initially regarding attempting the catch or not because of Mitchell Swepson running in from third-man at one point, Malan eventually decided to continue with this try to complete a running catch.

Expected to open the batting with captain Rohit Sharma (31) after India left out both Ishan Kishan and Deepak Hooda, Kohli walked in to bat at No. 3 in the fifth over as wicket-keeper batter Rishabh Pant (26) partnered Sharma at the top. Playing a T20I after almost five months, all Kohli scored today was 1 (3).

On the other hand, 34-year old Gleeson celebrated his T20I debut by dismissing the likes of Sharma, Kohli and Pant on the first eight deliveries of his international career.

As a result, a swift 49-run opening partnership was followed by India losing half their side for the next 40 runs to find themselves in deep trouble at Edgbaston.
