India captain Virat Kohli looked as impressive as ever while batting against Bangladesh in their second and final warm-up fixture ahead of the 2019 World Cup.

After being put into bat first, India lost opener Shikhar Dhawan (1) cheaply before Kohli came on and showed off his supreme stroke-making skills.

After smashing five fours to enter the forties, Kohli (47) failed to keep away a pitch-perfect yorker from Bangladesh fast bowler Mohammad Saifuddin in the 19th over.

The well-directed delivery breached through his defence, sparking some celebrations from the bowler (CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE VIDEO).

Bangladesh, however, failed to make the most of the prized scalp as India – despite losing Vijay Shankar for 2 soon after – rode on a stunning partnership from KL Rahul and MS Dhoni to amass 359-6 in 50 overs.

While Rahul all but cemented his place as the No. 4 batsman India have been looking for by smashing 108 off 99 balls, Dhoni too notched up a century as he blasted seven sixes en route to a 78-ball 113.

India are scheduled to open their campaign against South Africa on June 5.
