Indian team’s leading batsman Virat Kohli came out to bat at number three. He returned to the pavilion after taking just 2 runs off 7 balls. Kohli tried to play a huge shot off fast bowler Nathan Ellis but his bat didn’t quite go under the ball. Fielding at mid-off, he played the ball straight into the hands of Cameron Green. At the score of 35, the Indian team got their second blow.
Attack on weakness
Virat Kohli will be seen battling the leg spin bowlers at the start of the innings. Because of this, Australia attacked Kohli with spin bowling after Rohit Sharma’s dismissal. Adam Zampa arrived in the fourth over. Virat’s record against him is also poor. Sampa didn’t give Kohli pace or space to play shots. It took 4 balls for Virat to open his account. Then he tried to score quickly and got out.
Rohit also got out cheaply
Before Virat Kohli, Indian captain Rohit Sharma also failed to play a big innings. Six off Pat Cummins in the second over. In the third over, Rohit looked to hit a big shot down the leg side, but the ball went into the hands of Nathan Ellis, who was fielding it at deep square leg. His bat scored 11 runs off 9 balls.
