India and Nepal are currently locking horns in the Asia Cup 2023 clash at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium in Pallekele. After being sloppy on the field, the Men in Blue, in particular Virat Kohli, have rectified their mistakes and have done a decent job. 

Nepal were off the flying start but India made a staggering comeback in the game and picked wickets in clusters. They have bowled and caught well after dropping some chances early and bagged 6 wickets in no time. 

Nepal batter Aasif Sheikh was the key player for his side as he smashed a magnificent half-century but Mohammed Siraj got the better of him. More than the bowler, it was Virat Kohli, who was happiest as he bagged a catch having dropped one catch in the second over off the same bowler. 

Mohammed Siraj bowled a back of a length ball on off stump. Aasif Sheikh closed the bat face early as he looked to play it into the leg side. In the process, he got a leading edge and the ball lobbed towards cover. Virat Kohli looked tentative but he managed to bag the catch with one hand.

Nepal after a great start, however, lost the momentum and lost wickets. Ravindra Jadeja has been the key architect behind that as he has taken three quick wickets. The batting side was reduced from 65/0 to 144/6. Apart from the all-rounder, Shardul Thakur too has taken wickets whereas Mohammed Siraj has bagged two wickets. 

IND vs NEP: Virat Kohli drops a sitter in the second over of the game 

India so far in the game have been extremely sloppy. Virat Kohli too has been the culprit as he dropped the simplest of catches in the game. Apart from him Shreyas Iyer and Ishan Kishan too have dropped easy catches that cost India some runs in the start. 

Virat Kohli dropped a catch at covers. He hopped to the catch and made a mess of it. The ball juggled on him as well but unfortunately, it fell down.
