Virat Kohli might have been dismissed for a 20-ball 21 in the first ODI but the right-hander displayed his class with a nonchalant flick off Pat Cummins; one that was easily the shot of the game.
On Sunday, Kohli did an encore of it against Mitchell Starc and the result was once again the same as the ball sailed past the backward square-leg boundary. The moment came in the 27th over of the Indian innings when Starc, who had struggled in his first spell came in for his second outing.
Earlier, Virat Kohli came to the middle after India had lost two quick wickets in the form of Shikhar Dhawan and Mayank Agarwal.
Unlike the first game where he looked in a bit of a hurry, Kohli looked in his elements today.
The right-hander looked completely assured during his stay at the crease as he compiled his first ODI 50 at the SCG besides stitching a 93-run-stand with Shreyas Iyer.
But just as it looked that Virat was nearing his 44th ODI ton, Moises Henriques pulled off a stunner of a catch at short mid-wicket to land a body blow on the Indians.
Watch the shot here-
