Virat Kohli dismissed for 33 in warm-up match against Leicestershire . Kohli hit four fours and one six in 69 balls .
NEW DELHI: Just as it seemed Virat Kohli was losing touch ahead of the fifth and decisive Test to close the unfinished England tour of last year, the former India skipper failed to get off and was dismissed for 33 by Roman Walker in the warm-up match against Leicestershire.Kohli took a moment to walk back after the umpire raised his hand and inquired about the decision.The visitors' practice game started on the first day of the season, and Kohli performed well, scoring 50-plus runs for the sixth wicket with KS Bharat.He missed the line in his 41st over of the day when trying to drive a full-length delivery from Walker, and the ball kissed Kohlis pads before hitting the wicketkeepers gloves.During his 69-ball career, Kohli hit four fours and one six.On day one of the tour game, India was 246 for 8 at stumps, opting to bat first.On July 7, Bharat was unbeaten.Starting July 1, the Rohit Sharma-led team India will face hosts England in Edgbaston for the fifth Test. Last year, four of the five Tests were overdue; India won the second Test at Lords by 151 runs, and England bounced back to win the third Test in Leeds by a massive margin of an innings and 76 runs, but India took the lead by winning the fourth Test at the Oval by 157 runs.Last year, the fifth Test was postponed due to a Covid-19 infection in the Indian camp.In July this year, it was postponed to be played.
