There's no denying that Virat Kohli is one of the most enthusiastic players on the field, and his response to Umesh Yadav being hit for back-to-back boundaries in India vs Australia T20 quickly went viral.

India vs Australia T20 | Fans of the Indian cricket team had a night to forget on Tuesday, as Australia knocked down a 209-run target against them in Mohali to grab a 1-0 series lead in the three-match T20I series.

Umesh Yadav delivered the second over of Australia’s innings, and Cameron Green pounced, smashing four boundaries off his first four deliveries.

The camera caught the enthusiastic Virat Kohli with a troubled grimace as the lanky all-rounder, starting the batting for Australia, blasted the second delivery for a boundary past mid-off.

Kohli batted for 2 overs before being caught at mid-on off Nathan Ellis’ bowling. KL Rahul, on the other hand, set the tone for India with a 35-ball 55.

Suryakumar Yadav maintained the pace, hitting 46 off 25 pitches. He appeared to be on track for a good score, but an edge through to the wicketkeeper ended his innings.

Hardik Pandya, on the other hand, supplied the thrills at the end, going ballistic in the last over in particular, hitting the last three deliveries for three sixes. As India reached 208/6, he finished undefeated on 71 off 30 balls.

But it wasn’t enough, as Australia got off to a strong start and never looked back, despite a short time of pressure from the Indian bowlers.

While Aaron Finch showed signs of return with a 13-ball 22, it was Green who truly put the bowlers to the test, hitting 61 off 30 deliveries before falling to Axar Patel.

Even though Green’s departure caused a mini-collapse for Australia, Matthew Wade assured the team crossed the line without difficulty to take the series lead.

He finished victorious with a score of 45 off 21.
