Mitchell Starc claims Kohli for second-ball duck

14.4 over for Starc to Kohli, out Caught by Handscomb!! Gone. And they are mobbing Starc. Kohli is out for a duck. A young Indian fan is shell-shocked. Add a couple hundred more to that list. The Aussies are cock-a-hoop. Poor from Kohli though. Maybe he wanted to exert his dominance against Starc early on. Was well away from his body and outside off, but tried to play the square drive.
The feet didn't move and the edge carried comfortably to Handscomb's lap at first slip. He is gleeful as he accepts the offering. That dismissal will bring back horrible memories of that England tour for the Indian captain. That's how he got out repeatedly to Anderson and Co. A failure after a long while for Kohli. A rare sight. And the umpires keep Kohli waiting at the edge of the boundary - as they check for the no-ball, but Starc is fine with the front foot. Kohli c Handscomb b Starc 0(2)
