While over 400 runs were scored in the third IND vs AFG T20I on Wednesday (January 17), Virat Kohli failed to make any contribution with the bat.

The right-handed batsman made his much-awaited return to T20Is during the recently concluded series. He had not played a T20I for the Indian team since the semi-final defeat against England in the T20 World Cup 2022. Virat Kohli finally returned to T20Is in the second game of the three-match series between India and Afghanistan. In his comeback game, he looked in good touch and scored 29 runs.

Expectations were high for him for the third match which took place at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. However, the former Indian captain failed to live up to expectations and went for the golden duck after missing a short delivery from Fareed Ahmad.

Virat Kohli’s funny entry:

Despite the failure with the bat, Virat Kohli’s spirits remained unwavering as he maintained his typical jovial and playful demeanor throughout the match. He put in some notable fielding efforts during the game and was also seen dancing to the viral song ‘moye moye’ after the match went to the super finale.

The Indian superstar was not done yet. Even after the match she showed her playful nature with a hilarious gesture. The incident took place when the Indian players were posing with the trophy. Virat Kohli was initially absent from the group before he decided to make a grand distinctive entry. He slid into the standing frame to amuse his companions.

Look:

Talking about the game, it took 44 overs to decide the winner of the third T20I. An impressive century by captain Rohit Sharma helped Team India amass a massive total of 212 runs in the allotted 20 overs. Rohit, who failed to open his account in the first two games, remained unbeaten on 121 runs off 69 balls.

Rinku Singh also played a crucial knock of 69 not out off just 39 balls. In reply, Afghanistan put up a valiant effort with the bat and finished with 212 too with Gulbadin Naib’s whirlwind fifty leading their charge with the bat. Openers Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Ibrahim Zadran also scored fifties.

In the first Super, Afghanistan scored 16 runs and India finished with the same number of runs. In the second over, the hosts scored 11 runs, while Afghanistan could only manage one run.
