Virat Kohli once again had to wait for a while as Indian openers put up a good show despite Rohit Sharma’s absence. Kohli in the 12th over was in the dressing room trying to convey a message by opening the window and the camera panned right towards him. Kohli had his gear on and was talking to someone or something that we are not aware of. But the Twitterati found it really funny and as usual jokes flooded in as they decided to have a little fun of their own in a rain-interrupted match at Queen’s Park Oval, Port of Spain, Trinidad.
Kohli came to bat after Ajinkya Rahane departed for 62 in his comeback match. Rahane got out in the 25th over as Kohli had a platform set to take India to a big score with opener Shikhar Dhawan at the other end. Dhawan got out soon after as he missed out on another century, he got out for 87 and wasted a review as well despite the ball hitting him straight on the pads in front of the stumps.

Yuvraj Singh came to bat but could not make the opportunity count as he got out for 4 despite a good foundation provided by the openers. He got out for a loose shot flicked off towards midwicket fielder.

MS Dhoni joined Kohli in the middle but soon rain interrupted play at the Port of Spain as it poured down heavily. After almost an hour of stoppage, the play resumed again. But, the rain decided to play spoilsport again soon after Dhoni scored his first boundary.

Kohli scored 32 from 47 deliveries and was looking to launch an onslaught on the West Indies players in the death overs but rain interrupted his plans again.
