Indian captain Virat Kohli looks a little angry after missing a chance to miss a big score on day 4 of the running oval test against England on Sunday.
Kohli worked hard to reach 44, with seven boundaries, and wanted to continue to reach his third consecutive half-century in the series. However, he mentions a Moeen Ali delivery to Craig Overton first slip in the 111th over.
But when Kohli stepped back to the dressing room, his disappointment was clearly visible when the camera caught the captain of India slamming his hand frustratingly against the wall. The video of the incident quickly spread on the internet.

After the wicket of Kohli, the Indian wicketkeeper Rishabh pants and first turn hero Shardul Thakur put together a dominant stand of 100 runs for the seventh wicket to keep England away. Thakur recorded another half century, while Pant also returned to a fifties.
Thakur was sent back by Joe Root at 60 runs while Moeen Pant fired at 50. The visitors were 414/8 after Pant’s dismissal. It looked as if the hosts would finish the proceedings quickly, but the tail guards stood for a long time and stretched the team’s total to 466 runs before they could score anything.
Both Umesh Yadav and Jasprit Bumrah made valuable contributions of 25 and 24 respectively. Mohammed Siraj remained unbeaten at 3 as Team India gave England 368 runs’s goal.
For the home team, Chris Woakes while picking up three wickets for 83 runs Ollie Robinson (2/105) and Moeen (2/118) each bagged a few caps.
