Watch: Virat Kohli and Ishan Kishan show their hilarious dance moves to entertain the crowd at Eden Gardens after the win in 2nd ODI
India registered a 6-wicket win in the second ODI game against Sri Lanka on Thursday at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. With this win, the hosts have won the three-match series 2-0, with the third and final game to be played on Sunday.
And India registered their 95th ODI win against Sri Lanka, which is also the joint-highest by any team against one opponent. Following the game, former Indian captain Virat Kohli and young wicketkeeper-batsman Ishan Kishan entertained the crowd with their Desi dance moves.
Virat didn't have a great game as he got out for just 4 runs in the second game after scoring his 45th ODI ton in the first match. But despite that, the former Indian skipper never shies away from engaging with the crowd.
Fans came to the Eden Gardens to witness Virat bat, but he couldn't play any big innings in the second game. But he, along with Ishan, became the centre of attraction with their dance moves near the BC Roy clubhouse after the series win. Virat wanted to thrill the fans, and Ishan also joined him.

Fans were seen enjoying that moment and cheering for both Indian stars. As soon as the video went online, it spread like wildfire. Earlier in the game, Sri Lanka suffered yet another batting failure, and this time even skipper Dasun Shanaka couldn't make any contributions.
The visitors got all out for a score of 215 runs in 39.4 overs, with debutant Nuwanidu Fernando (50) being the top scorer in the inning. Chasing the target, India also didn't have a great start and lost their top four batters for 86 runs. Rohit Sharma (17), Shubman Gill (21) and Virat (4) who played well in the first match go out early.
But an unbeaten half-century from KL Rahul and some good contributions from Shreyas Iyer (28), Hardik Pandya (36) and Axar Patel (21) helped India to complete the tricy chase. Rahul scored 64 not out off 103 balls. Both teams will lock horns in the third and final game on Sunday in Trivandrum.
