Mirpur (Bangladesh), June 18: As Virat Kohli did something new on a cricket field at the Sher-e-Bangla Stadium during the first ODI against Bangladesh, his fans on social media took the opportunity to heap praise on India's Test captain. (Kohli does a Dhoni)
The new role for Kohli was wicketkeeping in an international match on Thursday. It was his first in that fielding position as regular stumper and captain MS Dhoni took a break from the field for an over. This happened in the 44th over of Bangladesh innings.
Kohli had earlier bowled 2 overs and now he took over the big gloves and was standing behind the stumps with no pads. He was also the captain. A perfect all-round job which pleased his fans.
Here are some of Kohli's wicketkeeping photos and reactions from Twitter
