Team India's innings went for a toss after captain Virat Kohli got dismissed for 71 runs in 72 balls, but, the way he was removed was precious as it was Adil Rashid's delivery that left Kohli shocked in the 3rd and concluding ODI of the 3-match series that took place at Headingley, Leeds.
The 29 year old earned 71 off 72 balls, which comprised 8 fours, however the Indian innings wavered in face of some high class spin bowling by the English spinner, who bust 3 for 49 to impair the middle order.
Adil Rashid cut short Kohli's innings as he inclined a delivery in the order of the middle and leg stump that took an unanticipated sharp turn, beating out Kohli's outside boundary as the ball clipped the top of the off-stump to Jos Buttler's glove.
Virat's response was the whole thing and some of the responses by people are –
Times Sport - "This was no freak induced by the Headingley turf with which Rashid is so familiar. It was a hugely skilful piece of bowling and one that would change the course of the India innings." @johnwesterby on THAT Rashid delivery to remove Virat Kohli.
James Whaling - Has Adil Rashid ever bowled a better ball than that? Kohli’s face says it all. Absolute ripper. #EngvInd
Tom Holland - Kohli with a Gatting-esque expression of disbelief on his face...
Navneet Mundhra - The series-clinching moment has to be Adil Rashid's peach of a delivery to castle Kohli. Shifted the momentum to England. India could never recover from that. Kohli's expression said everything! Congrats, England
Wisden India - #ENGvIND If India’s innings could be summarised in a meme, it would be Kohli’s face after being dismissed by Rashid. Innings report:
