Indian skipper, Virat Kohli, suffered the injury while chasing a drive from Peter Handscomb off Ravindra Jadeja. Sprinting from mid-on towards the long-on boundary, Kohli dived to pull the ball back before it reached the rope, tumbled, and landed on his right shoulder as he did so.
After sustaining the shoulder injury, Kohli decided to bat again during the 1st day of play of the same match. He was greeted with loud cheers by the home crowd at India’s newest Test venue but could only last for 23 deliveries.
Austrailian skipper, Steven Smith sent Kohli back to the dressing room after taking the catch. To celebrate this, he started mocking Virat’s shoulder injury.
This followed by Glenn Maxwell, who copied Smith’s act and mocked Virat after making a boundary rope save.
Take a look at the video of such immature behavior shown by Austrailian cricketers.
