India’s star player Virat Kohli is a live wire on the field, be it during his batting or his fielding. Kohli’s role as a fielder was extremely crucial during the side’s third and final T20I against Afghanistan in Bengaluru on Wednesday. Among some really good fielding efforts from Kohli, one that stood apart was he stopping a six at long-on. During Afghanistan’s chase of 213 runs, Karim Janat hit Washington Sundar‘s delivery hard down the ground. For a moment it seemed that the ball will sail over Kohli’s head but the star player jumped near the edge of the fence, grabbed the ball and threw it inside before falling over the ropes. The heroic effort saw Kohli eventually saving five runs for his team.

After the game ended, India’s fielding coach T Dilip handed the ‘Fielder of the Series’ award to Kohli in the dressing room and the reactions of Rohit Sharma, Washington Sundar and other teammates were heartwarming to see.

Watch it here:

A winner for the India vs Afghanistan third and final T20I was decided through not one but two Super Overs in Bengaluru.

Both the teams had their scores tied at 212 after which the contest went into a Super Over. The thriller never faded as the Super Over too ended in a tie, taking the game to yet another Super Over where the Rohit Sharma-led side edge past its opponent.

Earlier, Rohit and Rinku Singh had stitched a breathtaking 190-run stand to help India post a mammoth total 212 for 4 on the bouncy track of Bengaluru. Rohit scored 121 not out off 69 while Rinku contributed with 69 not out off 39 after the India skipper won the toss and opted to bat.

Afghanistan came out with a superb reply and managed to level the scores by the end, thanks to Gulbadin Naib‘s fighting 55 off 23.
