Former Australian Fast Bowler Slams His Own Teammates And Praises Kohli

Former Australian Fast Bowler Slams His Own Teammates And Praises Kohli”

Sachin Tendulkar holds the record for most number of ODI tons with 49, Kohli is now level with Ponting's haul of 30 centuries.

It was only the fifth time in one-day worldwide cricket that Kohli had got out in the nervous 90s. Virat Kohli has now contributed 10,059 runs in India's wins across formats. Throwing light upon the World Cup 2019 and Australian team's preparations, the 28-year-old cricketer shared, We have about 30 ODI games before the World Cup. "So whenever there is a crisis, Kohli hands over the ball to Chahal". He, sadly, missed out a well-deserved hundred when he lobbed one straight back to Shakib Al Hasan.

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 per cent winning record (won all four of their matches so far). Chahal and Kuldeep both have picked up five wickets in the two matches with the latter even adding a milestone of bagging a hat-trick at the Eden Gardens.

Expectedly, it behaved slow, giving the batsmen a testing time. "To be honest, the wicket was not easy to bat on throughout the day", he said.

Kohli had done a tremendous job before falling victim to a rash pull, thus missing out on his 18th ODI ton.

Everytime Australia tried to make their way back into the game, Indian spinners responded with a breakthrough, carrying on from the good work done by pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar (3/9) in the early overs.

The duo's 118-run partnership for the fifth wicket helped India post a competitive 281/7 in 50 overs. Smith is 3 centuries ahead of Kohli.

While the rest of the Australian team practiced on the ground, captain Steven Smith was seen practicing at the indoor cricket academy on the stadium premises.

When Virat Kohli comes to the crease to bat, there is a sense of relief among all Indian cricket lovers.

Kohli laced his 107-ball knock with eight boundaries, while Rahane hit seven fours during his 64-ball innings. Kohli overcame his patchy start and reached his 45th ODI half-century off 60 balls.

Kohli and Kedar Jadhav who were at crease took a single and that is when Wade lost his cool.

However, the explosive batsman's feels that Kohli has not yet been tested as captain and his real challenge would be when India begin to lose matches in a row.

India crossed 200 in the 38th over, but the big blow came just prior.

Though none of the Australian bowlers looked devastating, N M Coulter-Nile emerged most successful with three Indian wickets.(EOM).
