Groundsman Scares Virat Kohli During Asia Cup, Cricketer's Priceless Reaction Goes Viral - Watch
With Sri Lanka as their opponent in the 2023 Asia Cup final, India is getting ready for this Sunday, September 17. Before reaching the competition final, the Men in Blue controlled the proceedings. In their first match of the Continental Tournament, they triumphed over Nepal.
The team captained by Rohit Sharma defeated Pakistan by a commanding 228 runs in their second match. After defeating Sri Lanka in their second Super Four match, India punched their ticket to the championship game.
The 2018 Asia Cup winners were without up to five regular players, so even though they were upset by Bangladesh, their form shouldn't be too concerning.
A video of Virat Kohli being afraid during the India-Bangladesh match is doing the rounds on social media. The footage, which shows the former captain of India in full uniform, is from a previous tournament match.
Before fielding, Kohli was glancing at the dugout when a groundsman startled him by honking the horn. Virat was startled by the sound and froze for a moment before reacting in a priceless way. Splits also befell the fan who recorded the footage.
In the Asia Cup so far, Virat has had a respectable run. In the Super Four stage, the right-handed batsman against Pakistan made a century, but in the other two matches, he was dismissed for single figures.
It will be the third batsman's responsibility to contribute to the match and score a lot against Sri Lanka. In the 2022 Asia Cup final, Sri Lanka surprised everyone by defeating Pakistan. They will be looking to do the same against India.
The 2023 Asia Cup final will take place in Colombo on Sunday at 3:00 PM IST. Rain is predicted once more, and it may have an impact on the match.
