Virat Kohli signs gloves to tease Windies bowler Kessrick Williams

Virat Kohli vented his anger during India's chase against West Indies in the first T20I match played here at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderbad on Friday.

Virat Kohli sledged West Indies bowler Kesrick Williams on the field, imitating Chadwick Walton's bat signing act in the 16th over of Indian innings.

Kohli slammed a Williams' yorker for a six over long-on, he celebrated that shot by flicking his bat in air with his fingers to take a dig at the bowler.

The captain had lost his cool after the bowler was in his way while running between the wickets. Kohli complained to the on-field umpire about the incident expressing his disappointment with the bowler's gesture.

Later, Kohli hammered Williams for another couple of sixes in the penultimate over. He finishes off the match with a flat six over extra-cover off Williams bowling and roars loudly while pointing at his name on his jersey.

Kohli remained unbeaten on 94, his highest score in T20 Internationals, leading India to a six-wicket win to take a 1-0 lead in the three-match T20I series. Kohli's innings included six fours and six sixes.
