Dance in your lap
In the third match, Team India’s victory seemed certain, but the way Devon Conway was batting, Team India was in trouble. Glenn Phillips is a batsman who would have added to India’s problems had he lived. But this will not happen. Shardul Thakur guided him to the pavilion with the fourth ball of the 28th over. Phillips tries to send Thakur’s ball outside the deep midwicket boundary but is caught by Kohli. Kohli looked very happy after taking this catch and then started dancing.
