He is yet to make his first-class debut, but Aaron Hardie, who claimed the wicket of Virat Kohli during day two of India’s warm-up match against Cricket Australia XI at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Thursday, has already got the title of ‘giant killer’.

Hardie, the uncapped Willetton teenager, caught and bowled Kohli as the skipper departed for 64 after the opening day was washed out.

Kohli’s wicket was the second international batsman that Hardie has claimed, after the wicket of England captain Joe Root in a similar warm-up game in 2017.

“It was a pretty amazing feeling. It all happened very quickly,” Hardie told reporters.

“Because he was smacking me around the park a little bit and then next minute he hit one back to me. A bit surreal.”

The 19-year-old pacer finished the day with 4/50 in his 13 overs as the visitors were bowled out for 358. Hardie had claimed the wickets of Rohit Sharma and then had Ravichandran Ashwin and Mohammed Shami in the same over. He also played a hand in running out Umesh Yadav to end the innings.
