Kohli was caught on the boundary
Cameron Green played a big hit on the very first ball of Axar Patel’s over, which went straight to the boundary. Virat Kohli was fielding at long on, the ball was far away but he ran to reach it and in the last the catch was missed and went for a four.
However, due to the wet ground, this also happened because no player would want to dive that would hurt him because there is a World Cup ahead. However, the loss of the catch was not much as Cameron Green was out after two balls.
India got two wickets in the very first over of Axar Patel. Glenn Maxwell came to the crease after Cameron Green’s runout, in the last over of the over, Axar clean bowled him and shocked Australia.
