In the ongoing India vs. Netherlands match in Bengaluru, Virat Kohli, the unexpected bowler, rolled his arm and achieved a milestone by grabbing his maiden World Cup wicket.
The Indian cricket fans got an extra reason to celebrate as Virat Kohli dismissed Netherlands captain Scott Edwards in his second over at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium during the ongoing ODI World Cup 2023 match on November 12th.
In a dramatic turn of events during the 25th over, Kohli, delivering a subpar ball well past the leg stump, managed to secure a wicket. The crowd’s uproar reflected the astonishment as Scott Edwards, attempting a fine flick, got entangled and feathered the ball. KL Rahul’s quick anticipation came to the fore as he smoothly moved left and snatched a sharp catch. Edwards was visibly disappointed with the unexpected turn of events. This also marked Kohli’s first World Cup wicket.
