Virat Kohli lost his wicket for a golden duck but didn’t fail to entertain his fans with a hilarious reaction on Shreyas Iyer’s premature celebration for a half-century during the second One-day International in Vizag on Wednesday. On the second ball of the 48th over, Shreyas Iyer smashed Keemo Paul for a single run and raised his bat to celebrate a fifty with one run left but was corrected immediately by captain Virat Kohli and his other teammates from the pavilion. Among all, Virat Kohli stood out giggling over the whole incident while signalling Shreyas Iyer to stop the early celebration.

India rode on centuries by Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul to post a huge total of 387/5 after being asked to bat.

Iyer capitalised on a brilliant start by the Indian openers and contributed with a 53-run knock, with the help of three boundaries and four sixes. Young wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant impressed with 39 runs off 16 balls, including three boundaries and four sixes.
Spinner Kuldeep Yadav then claimed a hat-trick as India wrapped up the West Indies for 280 despite impressive knocks from Shai Hope (78) and Nicholas Pooran (75).
India had lost the series opener by eight wickets in Chennai and thus, they levelled the three-match ODI series with a 107-run victory in Visakhapatnam.
