Kohli is run out at the stroke of stumps

Jan 27, 2012 at 01:01pm IST

In the penultimate over of the day, Virat Kohli was run out attempting a needless single. Last ball of the 55th over, as the last specialist batsman with a nightwatchman in Ishant Sharma – bizarrely send to protect Wriddhiman Saha - at the non-striker's end, Kohli chose to run a single. It made no sense.

He tucked the ball toward midwicket and set off. Ben Hilfenhaus, fielding at mid-on, ran in and collected the ball. His aim was spot on, hitting the stumps before Kohli could dive in and ground his bat.

While Australia celebrated in a huddle, a fuming Kohli walked back. It was a terrible way to end the day for India.
