virat kohli, youth icon,

Virat Kohli, 29 year old Indian Skipper who is becoming icon for the youth, speared the heart of England fans when he made an unbelievable throw in a successful attempt to run out Root. Virat Kohli mocked Joe Root after running out the England captain on the opening day of the first Test at the Edgbaston cricket ground in Birmingham on Wednesday. When England was at 216 run with 3 wickets down, Virat made a magnificent direct throw brought Root down with 80 runs.

Virat Kohli,Youth Icon, Mocks Root

Just after the run-out, Kohli mocked Root by blowing a kiss and mimicked his ‘mic drop’ celebration. Kohli’s ‘mic drop’ gesture was the imitation of Root’s celebration during the one-day series against India two weeks ago.

When was the last time India had such a good first day in a first Test of a series? Cape Town of course. Earlier this year, when Bhuvneshwar Kumar wristed a magical spell to bowl out South Africa. If that was the result of high-quality bowling, India were rewarded for sheer perseverance in Birmingham, helped along by a fragile England who kept sleepwalking into pits to end the day on 285/9.
