(Watch) Virat Kohli and Shubman Gill’s reaction goes viral

India’s recent T20I clash against Afghanistan not only showcased Virat Kohli‘s on-field prowess but also provided a glimpse of his off-field entertainment. Kohli and Shubman Gill stole the spotlight with a face-palm gesture right after India secured the winning run in the second T20I in Indore.

In his return to T20Is since the 2022 T20 World Cup in Australia, Kohli demonstrated that he hadn’t missed a beat. His dynamic performance in the field included agile dives to save boundaries and a near-stunning catch attempt at long-on. When he stepped up to bat, Kohli, even in non-desperate situations, exhibited an attacking approach, scoring a quickfire 29 off 16 balls.

While Kohli’s time at the crease was brief, his role as a natural entertainer continued in the dugout. Seated beside captain Rohit Sharma, Kohli marveled at the towering sixes hit by Shivam Dube and Yashasvi Jaiswal. Later, he joined the younger players—Shubman Gill, Arshdeep Singh, Ravi Bishnoi, Avesh Khan, and Kuldeep Yadav—in jovial conversations, often taking the lead in cracking jokes.

The most intriguing moment occurred when India secured the winning runs in the 16th over. As Shivam Dube and Rinku Singh secured a leg bye, the cameras captured Kohli and Gill with a face-palm, while Arshdeep burst into laughter. This unexpected reaction to the winning run left netizens speculating about the possible reasons behind it.

Some social media users speculated that there might have been a friendly banter about Dube finishing the game with a six. However, the unexpected leg bye as the match-concluding moment prompted a unique dugout reaction, creating a buzz among fans.
