Indian skipper Virat Kohli's celebration following the dismissal of opener Aaron Finch on the second day of the first Test between India and Australia has gone viral and is a true indication of what cricketing passion is all about. 

Kohli jumped up in joy, pumping his fist as he celebrated with his teammates. 

The dismissal took place in the opening over of the Australian innings which was bowled by fast-bowler Ishant Sharma. Sharma bowled an excellent delivery which was pitched up, nipping back into the right-hander. 

Finch failed to read the delivery correctly and attempted to play an ambitious drive which was never an appropriate shot. The 32-year-old batsman took a stride forward, leaving his stumps exposed which were sent cartwheeling following an inside edge. 

Earlier, India were dismissed for 250 off the first delivery of the day's play.

In reply, Australia failed to pace their innings well. The hosts ended the day's play at 191/7 following an unbeaten half-century by rookie Travis Head, despite losing a flurry of wickets at crucial intervals. 

Spinner Ravichandran Ashwin was the pick of the Indian bowlers claiming three wickets. He further enjoyed quality support from Jasprit Bumrah (2/34) and Mohammed Shami (0/51) who delivered a disciplined performance with the ball.
