Former India National Cricket Team captain Virat Kohli gave Australia National Cricket Team experienced batsman Peter Handscomb an extra lifeline on Day 1 of the second Test match when he dropped a ball at the first slip.
Rohit Sharma’s Team India will want to repeat their successes in the second game of the four-match series against Australia after a dominant showing in the first Test. At the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi, the action will get underway on Friday, February 17, and the Pat Cummins-led team will undoubtedly try to get back on track. To go to the ICC World Test Championships final later this year, India must maintain their winning streak.

So far, Mohammad Shami, Ravindra Jadeja, and Ravichandran Ashwin have each taken three wickets as Australia trail India by nine wickets in the ongoing second Test. Peter Handscomb is batting in his 60s, but he isn’t getting much help from the other end.
Earlier, KL Rahul made a superb catch to dismiss Usman Khawaja (81) and end the 59-run fifth-wicket stand. Ravindra Jadeja’s first and 250th Test wicket is taken. The all-rounder surpasses 250 Test wickets and 2500 Test runs to become the fastest Indian and second fastest in world cricket. R Ashwin dismisses Alex Carey in the next over, leaving Australia reeling at 168 for 6.

Watch- Virat Kohli Drops Peter Handscomb In Slips:
The current Test match between India and Australia is not going well for Virat Kohli, who is regarded as one of the best and safest fielders in the world. Virat Kohli dropped his first catch of the match on the fifth delivery of the 68th over, bowled by Axar Patel, during the third session on Day 1.
Handscomb purposely cuts hard and slices short outside off, the ball zooms through Kohli’s reverse-cupped hands, not even a half-chance. Kohli is relieved and lies down on the ground to rest.
