Virat Kohli and Ishan Kishan stole the spotlight with their dance moves near the BC Roy clubhouse on Thursday at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata, just moments after India defeated Sri Lanka by four wickets to take an unassailable 2-0 lead.
Fans applauded Kohli and Kishan as they showed off their abilities, making it appear as though a party had begun. Kohli had already been seen dancing on a cricket field.
On Thursday, India defeated Sri Lanka by four wickets at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. The victory also allowed India to extend their advantage to 2-0 and clinch the three-match series. KL Rahul slammed an unbeaten 64-run knockoff 103 balls as the hosts reached 219 for six in 43.2 overs, chasing a 216-run mark.
Chamika Karunaratne and Lahiru Kumara each grabbed two wickets for Sri Lanka. Initially, Nuwanidu Fernando’s half-century aided Sri Lanka’s total of 215 in 39.4 overs. Mohammed Siraj and Kuldeep Yadav were in fine form for India’s bowling attack, both taking three wickets.
Virat Kohli impressed the stadium crowd with his stunning dance moves:
Thousands of people crowded the famous Eden Gardens venue in Kolkata for the second One-Day International between India and Sri Lanka in anticipation of another Virat Kohli batting display. The star batter was struck out after only four runs on nine pitches since it didn’t happen.

After India’s victory in the second game, he amused the spectators at the stadium with his incredible dance routines to ensure that the supporters who had assembled at the renowned venue wouldn’t go home with a Virat Kohli memory. He was joined by Ishan Kishan, and the two were seen dancing in front of the stands to the roaring applause of the crowd.
Ishan has warmed the bench in both games while Virat has played for India in both of the series’ games thus far.
