India vs. Leicestershire: Virat Kohli Interrogates Umpire Following Rejection In Warm-Up Game
On Day 1 of the current tour game against Leicestershire, Kohli scored 33 before being taken out by Roman Walker.
Virat Kohli appeared to be in excellent form during Day 1 of the Warm-up Tour match between India and Leicestershire. The former India captain and KS Bharat had a fifty-plus stand after India fell behind by five runs in Leicester. He applied his strokes with assurance. He made one six and four fours. Kohli appeared to be on track for a significant performance in the game. It was not to be, though. Kohli attempted a drive against a fuller delivery from fast bowler Roman Walker in the 41st over of the day.
The ball appeared to be headed for the hands of the Leicestershire wicketkeeper after passing Kohli’s bat. After much thought, the umpire raised his fingers in response to the bowler’s vehement appeal. When he was given out, Kohli appeared surprised but immediately at ease. The umpire said that Kohli was LBW in response to his question regarding the dismissal. After then, the batter left the field.

The Indian cricket team, captained by Rohit Sharma, wants to defeat England in the Test series. The series, which was interrupted midway through last year owing to an epidemic of COVID-19 in the Indian camp, is currently 2-1 in favor of the visitors. The postponed Test will start on July 1 at Birmingham’s Edgbaston Cricket Ground. The Indians began their tour on Thursday with a practice match against Leicestershire before the crucial test.
The warm-up game got off to a fun start as Indian openers Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill entered the field to the sound of dhols and bhangra music. As the players entered the pitch, dancers wearing traditional Punjabi attire could be seen performing. Some of the Indian athletes could not contain their laughter at the circumstance.
The rival Leicestershire County Cricket Club (LCCC) team has added star Indian cricketers Cheteshwar Pujara, Rishabh Pant, Jasprit Bumrah, and Prasidh Krishna. Sam Evans, the county captain, is their coach.
