A bizarre incident happened when Kohli and Rohit were at the crease. At that time, Kohli was heard taking a dig at Kieron Pollard. The drama unfolded when Kohli smashed the ball down the ground off Roston Chase.
As Kohli hit the shot from the back foot, the ball went on to hit the captain Rohit Sharma during the 8th over. At that time, West Indies captain Pollard attempted to run Rohit out after the ball bounced off his body.
Kohli who observed the incident from the striker’s end was caught on stump mic saying, “you can’t run him out like that Polly (Kieron Pollard)” The video clip has been doing the rounds on social media.
