Watch: 'Water Boy' Virat Kohli Leaves Fans Amazed With Hilarious Gesture During India vs Bangladesh Match
Even though Virat Kohli was benched for India's final Super Four Asia Cup 2023 match against Bangladesh on Friday, September 17, at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo, he still gave his all to support his teammates throughout the game.
Play halted for drinks, and in a now-viral video on social media, Kohli hurried to the middle while holding the water bottles full of beverages. Mohammed Siraj was spotted trailing behind Indian batting legend Virat Kohli as he made some amusing gestures towards his colleagues.
India, who had already secured their spot in the final, made five changes for the match, including the addition of Kohli.
The Rohit Sharma-led team opted to bench strength and left out Kohli, Siraj, Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya, and Kuldeep Yadav from the playing XI. All 17 members of the Men in Blue's roster have now been given the opportunity to participate in at least one tournament game.
While Prasidh Krishna is playing his first ODI in nearly 13 months, Tilak Varma is making his debut. Suryakumar Yadav has the opportunity to make a claim on a middle-order position in the Indian World Cup playing XI. Mohammed Shami and Shardul Thakur were both added back to the starting lineup.
Regarding the game, Rohit decided to bowl first after winning the toss. Mohammed Shami and Shardul Thakur struck first with the new ball, giving India a fantastic start. After Shami removed Litton Das, Shardul claimed two more wickets in the opening ten overs.
Bangladesh lost four wickets before reaching 100 runs, but Axar Patel also claimed a wicket in his opening over. India and Sri Lanka will square off at the summit on Sunday in Colombo.
