Watch: Not Mayank Yadav, LSG Coach Celebrates This Youngster For Scalping Virat Kohli

Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) head coach Justin Langer has revealed how young left-arm spinner M Siddharth fulfilled his promise - getting Virat Kohli out. Siddharth made just his second appearance for LSG on Tuesday, dismissing Royal Challengers Bengalur (RCB)'s star batter Kohli for his first IPL wicket. After bowling him a couple of quick ones, Siddharth set up Kohli's downfall with a slower one. Kohli tried to flick the ball but got a leading edge, which went straight to the fielder at point.

After the match, Langer revealed his first chat with Siddharth, who promised to get Kohli out.

"Had never spoken to him before... I saw bowl an arm ball. The first thing to come out of my mouth after meeting M Siddharth was 'Hey Sid! you reckon you can get Virat out for us?' He goes, 'Yes sir!'. And what did he do? He gets him out," Langer said in a video uploaded by LSG.

The unheard tale of Langer's interaction with Siddharth was greeted by loud cheers in the LSG camp.
