Virat Kohli-Beauran Hendricks clash: The Indian captain and the South African fast bowler collided with each other in Bengaluru.
During the third T20I of the ongoing South Africa’s tour of India in Bengaluru, India captain Virat Kohli and South Africa fast bowler Beuran Hendricks were seen colliding against each other while the former was completing a run in the fifth over of the Indian innings.
Hendricks, who played this match in place of Andrich Nortje, dismissed India vice-captain Rohit Sharma (9) in his first over itself. With Kohli coming in to bat at No. 3, the duo continued with their own thing despite colliding with each other.
Coming on the back of his 22nd T20I half-century, Kohli couldn’t steer the ship for India tonight. On the third delivery of the ninth over, Kohli was dismissed by South Africa fast bowler Kagiso Rabada just when he looked to up the ante for India. The Indian skipper ended up scoring 9 (15).
After Kohli won the toss and chose to bat, he would have expected his batsmen to post a formidable total on the board on what is generally a supportive batting surface for batsmen.
However, that wasn’t the case as India eventually scored 134/9 in their allotted quota of 20 overs. Having scored 36 (25) with the help of four fours and two sixes, opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan was the pick of the Indian batsmen.
With bowling figures of 4-0-39-3, Rabada was the pick of the bowlers for the visitors. Apart from him, Hendricks and spinner Bjorn Fortuin picked up a couple of wickets each.
