Indian skipper Virat Kohli knows only one way of playing on the field and that is to remain aggressive. The Indian skipper does not shy away from expressing his emotions on the cricket field and the latest to witness the same were the South African spectators who were witnessing the game from the stands.
Virat Kohli was clearly displeased and frustrated after his team were forced off the field by the umpires causing a halt in play towards the end of play on Day 3 of the 3rd and final test at Johannesburg. He believed that the Indian team had braved their way out on a difficult pitch and the South Africans were creating unnecessary hue and cry regarding the issue of the uneven pitch. The Indian skipper was highly pumped up today, even though his team were not picking up wickets in the morning session. India had their backs to the wall with Dean Elgar and Hashim Amla sharing a 119-run stand between them for the 2nd wicket before the partnership was eventually broken by Ishant Sharma. AB De Villiers and Faf Du Plessis were both dismissed cheaply and it brought Quinton De Kock to the crease.
De Kock was however trapped by Jasprit Bumrah right in front of the stumps and the umpire had no hesitation in raising the finger. Virat Kohli seemed highly animated after the dismissal and rushed towards the bowler, saying something to him before signalling to the crowd, asking them to remain quiet.
