In a lighthearted moment during the T20 World Cup Super 8 match between India and Bangladesh at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium on Saturday, veteran batsman Virat Kohli brought back memories of 'gully cricket' with his playful fielding antics.

The veteran batsman, known for his intense approach on the field, displayed a playful side while fielding at long-on in the 18th over. Axar Patel's delivery was launched over the boundary rope by Rishad Hossain, landing under a desk positioned outside the playing area. Kohli, stationed there, didn't hesitate to bring back memories of childhood games. In a scene reminiscent of "gully cricket," Kohli dived under the desk to retrieve the ball, much to the amusement of the crowd.
