During the third test match between India and Australia, which is now being played at the Holkar Stadium in Indore, a split-second of joy and disappointment was captured on camera.
Virat Kohli, the former captain of India, was shown dancing gleefully in contrast to the well-known Rahul Dravid, who is currently the Indian team’s coach. Rahul Dravid was shown pouting in a photo. This event occurred as a result of an Indian pacer named Umesh Yadav’s series of sixes against the Australian bowlers.

On the 30th over of the Indian innings, Nathan Lyon bowled to Umesh Yadav, which was when everything started. Umesh, a batsman known for his strength, decided to slog-sweep and slammed Lyon’s delivery for a six over the midwicket boundary. It was just a matter of time before Umesh Yadav unleashed his devastating blows, and he did not let the Indian supporters down.
Todd Murphy, an off-spinner, bowled to Yadav in the following over. Yadav attempted the slog-sweep again and successfully sent the ball over the backward square leg to get another six. In front of the Indian fans, who were standing, Virat Kohli was seen dancing.
Dravid, who is known for maintaining his cool under pressure, wasn’t a fan of Umesh Yadav’s plan. He may have intended, as a coach, for his squad to play more cautiously and not squander wickets. Yadav did what was required of him by scoring quick runs for his team, and his power-hitting abilities cannot be discounted.
India was struggling to score runs on a wicket that favoured the spinners, so they needed Umesh Yadav’s massive hits. With the help of Yadav’s powerful 13-ball, 17-run performance, India was able to break the 100-run mark. Though his appearance was brief, Matthew Kuhnemann promptly shot him in the next over.
