Kohli returned to India's playing eleven after missing the first ODI due to a groin strain and looked in gorgeous touch while playing a straight drive, on drive and cover drive for collecting three boundaries against left-arm quick Topley.

But Kohli couldn't carry forward as he tried to chase a wide ball away from his body off David Willey and gave an easy catch behind to Jos Buttler.
