Murali Vijay, Virat Kohli, Cheteshwar Pujara show DAB moves during Nagpur Test - Watch Video

This practice of performing a dab on the cricket field was introduced by KL Rahul during India's tour to Sri Lanka in July-August 2017

Apart from Virat Kohli’s 5th double century and Ravichandran Ashwin’s fastest 300 wickets, there were three more batsmen who played an important role in India’s victory. The trio of opener Murali Vijay, Cheteshwar Pujara and Rohit Sharma batted so well that the Lankan bowlers were left clueless on the field. Especially Murali Vijay who made sure that his comeback in the team should make a positive difference. He replaced Shikhar Dhawan in this game and did a fabulous job.

Vijay and Pujara added 209 runs for the 2nd wicket. This was 9th 100+ runs partnership between both the batsmen. Vijaya scored 128 runs from 221 balls while Pujara’s batting ended on 143. While fielding as well, these two batsmen seemed to be enjoying the situation and expressed it by doing a dab move.
