One of the finest batters in the world, Virat Kohli didn’t get off to the finest starts with the bat in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. The former India sipper only scored just 12 runs from 26 balls in the first innings. While Virat didn’t get enough runs on the board on a personal level, India’s 400-run first-innings total was enough for them to hammer Australia in the series opener. As India secured a thumping win, Kohli was understandably in a jolly mood and was spotted enacting “Jhoome Jo Pathaan” dance steps from Shah Rukh Khan’s movie.
In a video that has surfaced on social media, Kohli could be seen standing the likes of Mohammed Siraj, Ravindra Jadeja, and a few others around the boundary rope. Seeing Kohli in his dancing boots, even Jadeja couldn’t resist from joining the former captain.
Here’s the video:
