India vs Australia: 19-year-old bowler yet to play 1st class cricket dismisses Virat Kohli

Virat Kohli has been the undisputed 'Run Machine' in world cricket right now and he is all set to dominate the Australian team in the upcoming four-match Test series. In the practice match between India and Cricket Australia XI, the Indian skipper showed his class before getting out on 64.

The interesting thing about Kohli’s dismissal was the bowler-Aaron Hardie who is only 19-year-old and picked up this was maybe his biggest wicket of career.

Hardie caught and bowl the Kohli when he was in great touch and was smashing opposition bowlers all over the park. The right-arm pacer is yet to make his first-class debut, but he managed to make a name for himself by picking up the price wicket of 'King Kohli'.

The young-pacer also feels that it was an unreal moment for him as the bowl just sticks to his hand.

"It was a pretty amazing feeling. It all happened very quickly. Because he was smacking me around the park a little bit and then next minute he hit one back to me," Hardie told reporters as quoted by cricket.com.au.

"A bit surreal."

Earlier, Cricket Australia XI won the toss and invited India to bat.

The visitors left out Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Parthiv Patel and Kuldeep Yadav from the 14-man team selected for this practice game that doesn't have the first-class status.

Apart from Kohli, Prithvi Shaw (66) was among the five Indian batsmen who struck fifties before the visitors were bowled out for 358 on the second day of the rain-hit practice game against Cricket Australia XI.

In response, Cricket Australia XI finished the day at 24-0 in four overs. For India, Cheteshwar Pujara (54), Ajinkya Rahane (56), and Hanuma Vihari (53) were the others to post half-centuries.

Rain finally relented, and the match got underway earlier in the morning with play extended to 98 overs for each of the remaining three days.
