- We move only one way: Virat Kohli captioned the picture
- The viral picture had earlier drawn comparisons between Kohli and Dhoni
- In the picture Kohli can be seen stretching to save his wicket
Has Team India captain Virat Kohli already started getting into the game mode? Very recently, he shared a workout video in which he was seen running up and down his lawn and then a video surfaced in which he was seen playing tennis ball cricket with his wife and actor Anushka Sharma.
Virat Kohli on Sunday has shared a picture from a match which saw him demolishing the West Indian attack all alone. In the picture Virat Kohli can be seen stretching full length to get back into the crease and save his wicket.
Now when a batsman does it, he is usually seen facing in the direction of the stumps but Kohli has his own style. He is comfortably in the crease even without turning an inch back. Bowler Hayden Walsh Jr. can be seen smiling at Kohli’s high level of athleticism.
“No need to look back. As we move only one way – AHEAD,” The 31-year-old captioned the picture. The Delhi dazzler has indeed been keeping himself motivated during the nationwide coronavirus lockdown.

The reason why the image went viral is obvious. Fans had compared this famous stretch of Kohli to that of MS Dhoni. The stretch done by both the players was to the maximum but Dhoni was facing towards the wicket while doing that.

In the match, India chased a mammoth target of 208 runs with 2 ball remaining. KL Rahul had anchored the innings in the beginning of the run chase but it was the Indian captain’s magic which led to the victory of the Men in Blue.
Virat Kohli at once stage had scored 26 off 23 balls and was finding it difficult to time the ball. The asking rate was climbing slowly and with the departure of KL Rahul the onus was one Virat Kohli. Kohli did not disappoint and escalated from nowhere to finish his unbeaten innings 94 from 50 balls.
Chase master Virat Kohli was adjudged man of the match for his performance.
