Virat Kohli: Root did this job by taking a one-handed catch.
The play of the third day of the Test match between India and England (IND vs ENG) is over. All eyes are on the fourth day’s game. At the same time, Virat Kohli and Joe Root are dominated on social media.
Virat Kohli News: There were a lot of expectations from Virat Kohli in the India vs England Test match. All the cricket lovers were hoping that Virat Kohli’s bat would work but it could not happen. After scoring 11 runs in India’s first innings, he was bowled by Matthew Potts. In the second innings, Virat Kohli seemed to be freezing at the crease but Ben Stokes took his wicket.

When Virat Kohli was standing at the crease after scoring 20 runs, Stokes’s ball hit his bat and went into the hands of wicket-keeper Sam Billings but he could not carry the ball and the ball splintered away. In such a situation, Joe went to Root standing on the slip, who took the catch with only one hand. He was so happy about this catch that he started running on the field.
Virat’s fear was clearly visible here, because Root and the rest of the English team seemed very happy even after getting Kohli out of form for a long time. On the other hand, Virat Kohli appeared quite disappointed. However, the video of Root running is now becoming very viral on social media. Trollers on social media are also saying that Root’s happiness is clearly visible.
At the same time, on the third day of the Edgbaston Test against England, India’s lead increased to 257 on Sunday with top-order batsman Cheteshwar Pujara’s unbeaten half-century. At stumps, India are 125/3 in 45 overs, with Pujara on 50 and Rishabh Pant unbeaten on 30.
