Virat Kohli became the first batsman in India to score a hundred in a pink-ball Test. It will surely remain as a memorable one for the Indian captain and Taijul Islam will also remain involved as he pulled off a stunner to end the innings of Kohli.
Kohli was dismissed after he faced an ordinary delivery going down the leg from Ebadot Hossain and he flicked it with his usual grace. While the shot matched up to the skipper’s regular brilliance, Tailjul Islam at fine leg had other plans. The fielder first had almost misjudged it and ran in but then he lept upwards two-handed and grabbed the ball.
It took everyone by surprise including Kohlim who just gave a smiling appreciation to Kohli. And here’s how Twitter reacted to the catch and Kohli’s reaction –
Exceptional catch ?♥️? pic.twitter.com/6qldo1t16W

Virat Kohli is such a superstar.
Also his smile after getting out is enough to tell how magnificent that catch was by Taijul Islam. Brilliant brilliant innings by Virat, fitting that he got the first century by an Indian in a D/N test match #INDvBAN #PinkBallTestMatch

Bangladesh’s only moment of joy in the match so far came with a stupendous effort at the fence by Taijul Islam. The left arm spinner took a stunner to dismiss the Indian captain. #INDvBAN #PinkBallTest
