During the fifth delivery of the 34th over, Kohli pulled a Josh Hazlewood delivery towards midwicket, where Henriques put in a terrific effort to catch it. He dived to his left and was almost horizontal to the ground when he grabbed the ball. The dismissal was a crucial breakthrough for the hosts, with the visiting skipper scoring 89 runs from 87 balls.
Kohli slammed seven fours and two sixes in his knock.
India are currently chasing a target of 390 runs, after having lost the first ODI by a huge margin of 66 runs.
Henriques has been slotted into the starting XI as a replacement for Marcus Stoinis, who suffered a side strain during the first ODI at the SCG. Henriques is an all-rounder and also batted during the first innings. He remained unbeaten after scoring two runs from a single delivery.
The home side are currently in another injury dilemma with David Warner limping off during the second ODI due to an adductor injury.
