In the Asia Cup 2023 match between India and Nepal, held at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium on a Monday, Virat Kohli, often hailed as one of the most agile athletes in the world of cricket, had dropped an easy catch.
This incident happened on the first ball of the second over, delivered by Mohammed Siraj. Virat Kohli, stationed at the short cover position, leaped forward to take the catch of Aasif Sheikh but he got into an awkward side-on position and dropped it.
