Mix up between Virat Kohli and KL Rahul in the field, watch Indian batters react


Virat Kohli and KL Rahul are both incredible outfielders, but they had a mix-up in the first T20I against Australia as the Indian pair remained confused. The first game of the series in Mohali, India was asked to bat first as Aaron Finch won the toss and chose to bowl.

India posted a total of 208/6, powered by Hardik Pandya’s undefeated 71-run knockout and KL Rahul’s half-century.
