David Warner Explains MS Dhoni's Role In Virat Kohli's Captaincy

David Warner Explains MS Dhoni's Role In Virat Kohli's Captaincy”

The impressive part is that Kohli is just 28-year-old and has already achieved this feat. India became No.1 Test team in the World in 2009 for the first time under him. Thus, if they win, it will be India's longest win-streak against Australia. Ever since letting go of the captaincy duties, Dhoni has continued to remain a strong support unit for Virat Kohli and the team behind the stumps. "He's a very good batter, he's played a lot of cricket over the past couple of years, he's got a lot of experience and for us at the top of the order, he brings a lot of aggression".

The incident overshadowed the fact Kuldeep Yadav became the third India bowler to take a one-day global hat-trick as Australia were bowled out for 202 in a 50-run loss at Eden Gardens. The hosts are leading the series 2-0 and unless some injury happens at the last minute, we don't see changes in the playing 11. They are trying to plug a few loopholes but still look way ahead of their Aussies counterparts. They won their last match of the 2016 bilateral 5-match ODI series at Sydney in addition to the two matches that they won in this series. Pandya has been nothing short of a revelation, while Chahal and Kuldeep have given a pleasant headache to the team management and the selectors.

The duo's 118-run partnership for the fifth wicket helped India post a competitive 281/7 in 50 overs.

The batsmen, though, can look to have a good time.

On the other hand, India are now on an eight-match winning run, and hold an upper hand at Indore, where the men-in-blue have a 100 percent winning record (won all four of their matches so far). The only problem India are facing is the No.4 slot.

Australia captain Steve Smith urged his team to get to the bottom of their batting collapses after Thursday's defeat.

The hosts, on the other hand, have ticked nearly all the boxes. "We are here for another three matches to go and hopefully we can turn that around and maybe we will see a different captain", David Warner said. Warner is yet to make a mark in this series.

"He misfielded one. Whether the Indian batsman knew he was injured or not was probably a secondary question". The performance of the pacers - Nathan Coulter-Nile, Pat Cummins and Kane Richardson - is the only positive for them so far.

The Australian cricket fan praises captain Kohli saying that he is a champion, a gladiator, a warrior, and that's why he hates him when he plays against the Australians and absolutely loves him when he is playing against anyone else.
