Ravindra Jadeja, who had a role to play in the wickets of Henry Nicholls and Kane Williamson, was being serenaded by the Old Trafford crowd with the song ‘Oh Ravi Jadeja’ to the tune of Seven Nation Army. Kohli, enjoying the song, was seen moving to the beat of the song and motioning to a section of crowd in appreciation.
Even as oohs went around the crowd when an edge from Ross Taylor did not carry to MS Dhoni behind the stumps, Kohli reacted with a laugh, immediately gesturing to the bowler Jasprit Bumrah that the ball had dipped on Dhoni, and that it had not been a missed catch.
Kohli was seen having a good time on the field as New Zealand struggled to get their run rate in the fast lane in the World Cup semifinal.
The many moods of #ViratKohli! ??

Former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly also remarked in the commentary box that Kohli has been the best captain on display in this World Cup.
