India Lose, But Twitter Can’t Stop Talking About ‘King Kohli’

MS Dhoni Hosts Team India for Dinner at Ranchi Home Ahead of IND vs AUS 3rd ODI Yuzvendra Chahal Thanks Former Skipper & Sakshi Dhoni

Australian team set up a target of 313 runs for team India to chase.

At this point of time, it should not be a surprise. Skipper Virat Kohli was the highest run-scorer for the hosts scoring 123 runs off 95 deliveries. His innings included 16 boundaries and one maximum. To be able to put pressure on world class players and to get wickets on a wicket which was easy to score with the new ball.

The only blemish in Kohli's knock was when Alex Carey dropped him with the batsman two short of his second successive century and 41st in ODIs. He has now overtaken Sachin Tendulkar for the most number of hundreds scored against the world champions. I just felt really clear in my head from ball one. But just as the momentum was shifting towards the home side, Kohli perished in the 38th over, trying to hit Adam Zampa for a third consecutive four, after which India lost their way in the chase. At one stage they looked well in pursuit of a total in excess of 350. Even worse is Ambati Rayudu's performance at No 4 with aggregate of 33 runs in three games. The wicket wasn't improving at all and wasn't getting easy for batting. Tried to do that for a decent time, but you have to take the odd risk, and with every wicket lost it gets more and more hard. Groundsmen reported that and because there was so much dew yesterday, we opted to chase.

The director general of ISPR tweeted it after Indian cricket team wore military caps, mixing politics with sports once again and violating the ICC code of conduct.

"The guys who have got out, will try to make the most of the next opportunity".

"We will have some changes in the last two games. I really thought we had a chance with the difference being 20 between balls and runs". "All these decisions will be taken by the captain and coach before the match", Bangar was quoted as saying.

When asked at the post-match presentation about India's tendency to lose wickets in clumps in this series, Kohli said: "No team wants to do that".

The match will be played at the Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali.
