Star India batter, Virat Kohli has earned a new record for himself after India defeated West Indies in the 1st ODI.
Usually, Kohli comes in at No.3 after the 1st wicket falls. But, this wasn’t the case yesterday.
Additionally, Kohli is known for his destructive batting all over the world and has smashed many runs.
However, he didn’t come out to bat throughout the game and this is a first for Kohli.
Therefore, this was one of the most talked about moments of the game as well.
Even though India were five down in the game, Kohli still didn’t come out to bat. Previously, Kohli has batted at No.7 but yesterday, he was positioned at No.8.
Meanwhile, India managed to achieve the target of 115 runs with ease and also started the white-ball leg of this series well.
