Kohli, who faced just four balls in the match, was bowled out by Ajaz Patel. This is Kohli’s fourth Test appearance this year. Kohli holds the record for most Test appearances by a Dhaka Indian captain in a calendar year. Apart from this, Kohli also holds the record for the most number of Test matches in India by a Dhaka Indian captain. Kohli has made six consecutive Tests in India, including his dismissal in the Mumbai Test. Kohli holds the record held by five-time Dhaka former India captain Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi.
Kohli also holds the record for the second most number of Tests by a Dhaka captain. Kohli, a 10 – time Dhaka batsman, has been second in the Tests with the former South African captain, while Stephen Fleming, a 13 – time Dhaka batsman, has topped the list. Kohli is also the only Indian captain to have beaten Dhaka 10 times in Tests.
Kohli, meanwhile, was ruled out of the second Test of the India-New Zealand series in Mumbai. The incident took place in the 30th over of the Indian innings. Kohli was dismissed while trying to defend the last ball of the over thrown by Ajaz Patel. The on-field umpire called out the New Zealand players’ appeal after the ball hit Kohli’s pad. But Kohli immediately took up the review. In the review footage, it was clear that the ball had hit the bat. However, there was no large gap between the bat and the pad, so it was not clear whether the ball was first hit on the bat or pad. The Indian fans hoped that the umpire’s decision would be reversed when it became clear that the ball had hit the bat, but after looking at the replay from various angles, the third umpire sided with the umpire’s decision. Before leaving the ground, Kohli hit the boundary rope with his bat.
At stumps on the first day of the second Test against New Zealand, India were 221 for four. Opening batsman Mayank Agarwal’s century gave India a better score. Mayank Wankhede scored his fourth Test century.
Mayank hit 120 off 246 balls with 14 fours and four sixes while Saha hit 25 off 53 balls with three fours and a six. India lost wickets of Shubhman Gill (44), Virat Kohli (0), Cheteshwar Pujara (0) and Shreyas Iyer (18). Ajaz Patel took all four wickets.
The match started late on the first day after the outfield got wet due to rain. Only 70 overs were bowled on the first day.
