Team India skipper Virat Kohli once again failed to convert a start in the second innings of the Oval Test on Sunday. The talismanic run-scorer, whose long wait for a century continues, punched the door of the dressing room in frustration after getting out to Moeen Ali.
Meanwhile, India didn’t have the best of starts on day 4 losing Ravindra Jadeja and Ajinkya Rahane cheaply. However, Virat Kohli looked in rhythm and played a couple of gorgeous-looking drives that ran to the boundary like a bullet.
India lose another one!

Just when Kohli looked all set in the middle, a simple delivery from Moeen Ali undid all the hard work. Virat Kohli committed himself with a long stride playing for a turn but the ball held onto his line after pitching only to find Kohli’s edge on his way to the first slip fielder.
Disgusted to convert the star, Virat Kohli was seen punching the door of the dressing room on his way back.

With Rishabh Pant and Shardul Thakur in the middle, India will look to bat as long as possible and post a mammoth total in the scoreboard to give themselves the best chance to bowl out England and go 2-1 up in the series.
