India vs Australia 2nd ODI: Twitterati congratulate Virat Kohli for brilliant innings

22 September, 2017, 00:47 | Author: Douglas Reid
  • The match has become important for both the teams as India is leading by 2-0 in the five-match ODI series

Coming on to bat after the early dismissal of Rohit Sharma, Kohli (92) looked in great touch and along with Rahane (55) shared 102 runs off just 111 deliveries for the second wicket to set the base for the total. It wasn't easy to bat plus the bowling attack is quality as well, you literally have to create shots. He became only the third Indian bowler in the history of the game to take an ODI hattrick.

As Steve Smith the Australia Cricket team captain prepares to play his 100th one-day global for Australia, the maestro says his growth as a 50-over cricketer is still a long way down.

Head was out for 39 to leg spinner Yuzvendra Chahal while Smith fell for 59, caught in the deep when trying to pull all-rounder Hardik Pandya. The ball turns away a bit, takes the outside edge and Dhoni behind the stumps doesn't make any mistake.

The four countries quietly expanding their nuclear arsenals
However, the countries with nuclear weapons and their allies are not involved in the negotiations. The treat would enter into force 90 days after at least 50 countries both sign and ratify it.

In the company of Marcus Stoinis, Smith completed his 18th ODI fifty and kept Australia's chase alive in the process. "That's how it goes in the shorter form of the game and at the global level", he said, referring to his dismissal for a duck in the series opener four days back. It was an all-round bowling effort from India, and Yadav joined the party by sending back Matthew Wade, Ashton Agar and Pat Cummins in as many balls to send the Eden Gardens crowd into a frenzy. Stoinis stretched the innings with quite crisp blows but India needed only two deliveries to take out Nathan Coulter-Nile and Kane Richardson, and victory was sealed by the 44th over.

Like the way always, the young cricketer from Kerala KK Jiyas is perhaps will help this time also in the Chennai ODI, two local club bowlers - Ashutosh Shibram and Rupak Guha - had been seen doing practice to the Aussie batsmen, for the today's match. The UP lad ran through the Australian lower middle order to put India in a commanding position. "You can count on Bhuvi for getting the breakthroughs", Kohli said. However, the sun shone over the iconic stadium in the evening after rain made way for sunlight, raising hopes of a full game against Australia. He has recorded 30 ODI hundreds and 45 fifties. But the host veered off course after the departure of the Indian captain in the 38th over. Kedar Jadhav walked out at No. 5 again and added a brisk partnership with Kohli even as players continued to struggle in the heat.

Earlier, captain Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane struck sublime half-centuries before Australia made a strong fightback to bowl India out for 252.
