Virat Kohli is back in the headlines for the Perth Test and this time it is not for his supposedly "faulty team selection" as the Indian captain has taken a blinder at second slip to dismiss Peter Handscomb.

In the first ball of the 55th over, Ishant Sharma bowled a back of a length delivery to Handscomb who was looking to cut it away. The ball climbed on him and he could only manage an edge that flew off the top of his bat.

The ball looked destined to fly away to the third man boundary until Kohli decided to take off and jump full stretch to his right, pulling off a stunning one-handed catch with his entire torso hanging in thin air.

Twitter immediately went crazy, hailing the stupendous effort by the Indian captain.

Perhaps the others should take a lesson from Kohli on slip fielding suggests this user.

And even coach Ravi Shastri was not spared.

After a sedate first session, questions were raised over India's decision to go in with an all-pace attack but since tea, the demons in the track seems to have woken up and the ball is jumping from length making it very difficult to bat.

The Indian pacers have been troubling the Aussie batsmen, beating them on the outside edge multiple times and from 111-0, Australia has been reduced to 168-4 (at the time of reporting).

India will have to bat very well in their reply to Australia as surviving on this wicket in the fourth innings will be very difficult.
