Kohli’s ‘Sachinesque’ straight drive reminds us of the ‘good-old’ days of Sachin Bhai

Sachin Tendulkar might have retired from cricket a couple of years back, but he is still remembered and revered for the memorable innings he had played in a career that spanned for more than two decades. Indian skipper Virat Kohli has given a perfect tribute to the batting legend by replicating a perfect straight drive Sachin had played against Nuwan Kulasekhara of Sri Lanka few years ago.

The second day of the one-off test against Bangladesh started with Kohli and Rahane coming together to continue their show that they started on Thursday. The two looked fluent, but Rahane was felled after scoring a meaty 82 and Kohli continued without any halt.

A fine innings with brilliant display of variety of shots, Virat at one time resembled so similar to Sachin. This straight drive will remind us him of the 'good-old' Sachin.
