Virat Kohli does not like getting out and it’s no mystery for cricket fans. The batter plays the game with a lot of passion and enthusiasm and often looks disappointed after being adjudged out. No one can forget his reaction after registering three golden ducks in IPL 2022. In short, it’s always interesting to see Kohli’s reaction after he loses his wicket.
As the star batter is back on the cricket field playing for India in the 4-day warm-up match against Leicestershire before the big Test takes place in the first week of July, his livid reactions after getting out are also back. In the first innings of the 4-day match, Kohli was adjudged out by the on-field umpire against Roman Walker.
However, the batter did not look satisfied with the decision. After the ball hit Virat Kohli’s pad, the bowling team made a loud appeal but the batter walked away confidently thinking he was not out. The on-field umpire, meanwhile, looked closely and gave it a thought before eventually raising his finger. Seeing this, Kohli looked shocked and even questioned the umpire about his decision. It took some convincing to send the batter off the field.

Shades of confident Kohli!
Although Virat Kohli could not get a big score, his shots captured all the attention of the viewers. The right-handed batter played some thumping shots in his innings of 33. Kohli hit four boundaries and a six in his short inning. He looked much more confident as compared to how he batted in the recently concluded 15th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). He also played his signature cover drive which won the hearts of the fans.

While Virat Kohli got a decent score, the other Indian batters looked to be struggling against Leicestershire bowlers, especially Roman Walker. The right-arm quick who is yet to play his first First-Class game bagged a fifer.
