In the practice match against Australia XI, Indian skipper Virat Kohli scored a blitzkrieg half-century but that was unnoticed as his outfit during the toss gets more attention. The Indian skipper was donning shorts, India jersey, and blue color training shoes at the time of toss. Virat’s lame dressing sense and disrespectful manner for the game created a buzz on Twitter and he got trolled for it. On the other side, Australia XI captain Sam Whiteman was dressed perfectly.
A Twitter user called Virat’s gesture as disgraceful and disrespectful. “There was a time when captains were used to wear blazers during the toss, but this behavior of Virat Kohli is absolutely unpardonable.”
Although, Indian skipper showed some good hands and played a knock of 64 runs off 87 balls. Whereas youngster Prithvi Shaw slammed 69 runs off 66 balls, Chiteshwar Pujara and Hanuman Vihari contributed half-centuries respectively to set a challenging score of 358 runs on the Day 2.
