Kohli acted like he was watching the time on his wrist watch, even though he was not wearing one, to convey his message to the umpires about Rizwan taking time longer than necessary.
Earlier, Kohli had to make an early exit from the field as he wore a different jersey at the start of the contest. While the rest of the players sported tri-color stripes, India’s official jersey for the ICC ODI World Cup 2023, on their shoulders, Virat’s jersey had three white stripes.
Virat, after being pointed out, promptly switched to the correct team jersey, featuring the tri-colored stripes on the shoulders.
