On the first day of the warm-up match against Leicestershire, Virat Kohli became a victim of fast bowler Roman Walker after having a good time on the pitch. The way he was frozen in the crease, it looked like he was maybe going to play a big inning, but at the same time, the 21-year-old Roman showed him the way to the pavilion. Kohli received lbw. However, he was unhappy with the referee’s decision.
Leicestershire have posted video of Virat Kohli’s wicket fall on social media. It is seen in this video that as soon as Roman Walker’s ball hit Kohli’s bag, the Leicestershire players made a loud call. However, Kohli remained on his feet on the pitch. He was looking at the referee when he raised his finger. Kohli was surprised by this decision. He was on the field for a while. He also talked to the referee about this, but after that he had to go back to the arena. Virat Kohli scored 33 runs from 69 balls.
