Brilliant Virat Kohli Guides Ishant Sharma To Dismiss Temba Bavuma – Watch
You won’t often see a batsman suggesting what to bowl to a particular batsman, especially, in the Test format of the game. In one of those rare sights, we came across the Indian skipper Virat Kohli suggesting Ishant Sharma what to bowl at Temba Bavuma and guess what? Right in the next ball, Ishant Sharma got 1 wicket to his name with a beautiful inswinger.
It was in 27th over of the game when Virat Kohli handed the ball to Ishant Sharma with a few suggestions to bowl at Temba Bavuma. The lanky fast bowler delivered things at its best, where he was able to get a sharp inswinger with a massive difference to his previous delivery. Bavuma, unfortunately, failed to get his bat on it, thus, being plumb in front of the wicket.

Later, the video of Virat Kohli and Ishant Sharma planning video goes viral in the social media with the fans hailing the captaincy of Virat Kohli. The wicket furtherly dented South Africa, who are counting Bavuma as one of their weapons to save the game.
Earlier, in the match, after Rohit Sharma show on Day 1 of the Test match, today, it was Mayank Agarwal, who completely stole the limelight. Though Rohit Sharma continued his form to smash 176 to his name, it was Mayank’s double which was the major highlight of the day.
Both the openers started the proceedings on a brilliant note on day 2 of the Test match as well. They found it easy to smash balls all over the park with ease before Rohit Sharma being dismissed on 176, which was 1 run short to his previous best score in Test cricket. He was dismissed when Maharaj outfoxed him to see Quinton de Kock disturbing the furniture.
During the course, Mayank Agarwal was rock solid at the other end, who converted his maiden century into a double hundred. By doing so, he became the fourth Indian cricketer to convert his maiden century into a double century. And also, he smashed quite a few records during his majestic knock.
