India leggie Yuzvendra Chahal is yet to play a game in the ongoing 20-20 World Cup 2022 in Australia. He wasn’t considered in the ongoing game against Bangladesh as well. Meanwhile, ahead of the game, the team had an indoor net session. While the players were doing their regular preparation, one incident was caught on camera and is going viral on the internet.

Apparently, in a video that is going viral, Virat Kohli played a full-blooded lofted drive right past Chahal. The latter just escaped the hit as the former India skipper times the ball really well. After this, the leggie could be seen a little shaken the white Kookaburra might have injured him. After this, the 33-year-old apologized to hs teammate in the video. Notably, in the next ball he faced off Ravichandran Ashwin, he played a lofted cover drive.

Talking about Chahal, he is unlikely to play in the rest of the tournament. Currently, India is doing a fine job in the spin bowling department with Ashwin at the helm. Chahal’s inclusion might be subject to the team’s needs. Meanwhile, in the ongoing game against Bangladesh, KL Rahul finally found his form. After struggling for the first few deliveries, he hit 32-ball 50 to announce himself.

On the other hand, Kohli‘s love affair with the Adelaide Oval continued. He scored an unbeaten 64 off 44 balls and took the team to 184/ at the end of the innings. Notably, he has been dismissed only once, against South Africa. In reply, Bangladesh got a great start as Liton Das scored 59 to take the team to 66/0 at the end of seven overs. At this stage, rain interrupted the game which meant that the overs were reduced. Now, the Green Brigade needs to score 151 runs in 16 overs to keep themselves ahead in the semis hunt.

At the time of writing, Rahul got rid of Das with a direct hit on the stumps. Currently, Bangladesh has scored 84/1 in nine overs.
