Indian skipper Virat Kohli is on the top of the world after he scored his 30th One Day International century against Sri Lanka. He is also the ICC’s numero uno ranked batsmen in ODI’s. With the world at his feet, he has made his plans clear, he has his eyes set on the 2019 cricket World Cup. With the World Cup in mind, he has been using the series as a learning pad as well as gave the inexperienced players a chance to prove their worth. In this tour of Sri Lanka, India is yet to play on the wrong foot as they whitewashed the hosts in Tests and repeated the same in the ODI’s. In the process, team India, especially MS Dhoni, broke a lot of records. He became the first wicketkeeper, who went past the iconic Kumar Sangakkara, to affect 100 stumpings. He also bailed India out of a tricky, sticky situation in the second ODI, proving that he still had the skills to go on to play the 2019 cricket World Cup.
But, something has caught our attention and is in fact extremely interesting to see. Virat Kohli turned ambidextrous and opted to bat with his left-hand instead of his usual right-hand batting. But he did it in the streets of Sri Lanka and that became a show stopping moment.
Here is the video – the proof that the worlds best batsman batted with his left hand.

In the video posted by Saurabh Malhotra, you can see Virat Kohli smashing the ball back past the bowler, using his left hand to counter the delivery.
It seems like he is playing in a residential locality with houses all around. He seems to be gelling well with the locals and playing with a sportsman spirit.
