India skipper Virat Kohli’s batsman did not speak in ODIs against New Zealand. Seeing his bad times in fifty-over matches, the cricketers remember the memory of 3 years ago. That time, Kohli showed fury against Bangladesh.
India skipper Virat Kohli’s batsman did not speak in ODIs against New Zealand. Seeing his bad times in the fifty-over match, the cricketers remember the memory of 3 years ago. That time, Kohli showed fury against Bangladesh.
The team lost the three-match one-day series against New Zealand. The third ODI at Mount Maunganui is a testament to Kohli’s side. Rohit Sharma was ruled out of the one-day series for an injury as India’s opening slot becomes weak.
Since there was no hitman, it was Kohli’s responsibility to take over. But Kohli couldn’t. In the first ODI, India captain 5 runs. In that match, India could not win even by running a hill. In the second game, Chasemaster had to come back for only 5 runs to chase down the run. Kohli scored 3 runs in the third match of the series.
On the day when the team’s run was 4, Mayank Agarwal returned. Kohli could have taken India forward. But the skipper of India was only 42 balls in the crease. Only 5 runs. Kohli collected 3 runs in three matches. His average of 25 in this series.
In the last four years, Kohli has never shown so much fidelity to the bat. This time around the tour of New Zealand is near the Bangladesh tour of the country. Kohli scored only 3 runs in three matches. In the last 4 innings, the captain of India runs 5,1,3,3,3,3,3,3,9,3 and 5. Kohli himself has taken himself to another height. That is why he scored more than fifty runs in four of the last nine innings, but he was called a failure.
