Indian captain Virat Kohli took a screamer during the opening day of the second Test between India and Australia to dismiss Peter Handscomb off Ishant Sharma.

There was some bounce on the delivery and was too close to cut. Handscomb, however, went for the shot and ended up edging it to the second slip. The ball was, in fact, flying over the slip, but Kohli timed his jump to perfection and the plucked the ball with his right hand. He stretched full to convert that opportunity into a wicket.

Handscomb came out to bat after Australia lost three wickets in the post-lunch session.
