In the warm-up practice match agaisnt Leicestershire, Indian team is seemingly in a spot of bother on the first day. Till lunch on day 1, India has scored 90 runs in 28 overs at a loss of 5 wickets. All the fans' eyes are on former Indian captain Virat Kohli, who's at the crease with 9 runs to his name in 32 deliveries. However, during Kohli's time at the crease in the first session, there was a moment where cricket fans were reminded of former England captain Joe Root. 

Virat Kohli tried to do something which Joe Root did in the Lord's test against New Zealand. Against Kiwis, Joe Root was standing at non-striker's end and balanced his bat straight on the ground without any support. A video of the same surfaced on the internet and fans termed it as Root's magic. 


In the ongoing practice match, Virat Kohli was standing at non-strikers' end at one point of time. Kohli was seen trying something similar to what Joe Root did with his bat. However, Kohli didn't manage to balance his bat on the ground. However, a video of this incident has also made it to the social media and fans are now sharing and interacting in numbers.

However, once the partnership was broken, Leicestershire bowlers took on the Indian batters and sent the batters back to the pavillion one by one.
