Ind vs Eng 4th Test Match 2021: In the first innings of the fourth Test match played in Ahmedabad (Ahmedabad) between India vs England cricket team, once again Indian captain Virat Kohli returned to the pavilion without opening an account. Kohli showed the path of the pavilion by Ben Stokes, the vice-captain of the opposition team with his magnificent ball. Let me tell you that Ben Stokes has dismissed Kohli five times in Test cricket so far. Apart from Kohli, he has dismissed Michael Clarke, Faf du Plessis, Dean Elgar and Cheteshwar Pujara four times respectively in Test cricket.
It may be noted that in the ongoing four-match Test series against England, Kohli is out for the second time without opening an account. In the fourth Test, Kohli wanted to play the good length ball of Stokes first, but when he felt that the ball was lifting too high, he decided to leave it. By the time Kohli could leave the ball, the ball touched his hand and went into the hands of the wicketkeeper. Ben Fox also easily caught Kohli without making any mistake and showed Kohli the path of the pavilion.
