Indian skipper Virat Kohli looked determined when he came out to bat on the first day of the test match at Adelaide and scored 74 runs off 180 balls, was unlucky to get run out by Josh Hazlewood on a wrong call made by his deputy Rahane on the field. The wicket was crucial for the host as it brought them back in the game. Before Kohli departed he and Rahane was looking solid in the middle with 88 runs partnership for the fourth wicket.
It’s not just Indian fans who were disappointed that they were not able to see Kohli reaching in triple figures but also Australian legendary spinner Shane Warne who was also not happy with Kohli’s dismissal and took to Twitter to express his disappointment “Disappointing to see the great @imVkohli get run out! You could tell when he walked to the crease he wanted big innings and was super determined! Such a shame for us cricket lovers,” Warne tweeted.
However, he started slowly when he came out to bat and was looking set for a big score but a call from his deputy Rahane who played straight to mid-off for a quick single, and the moment Rahane realized that the ball was hit close to the fielder he decided to change his mind. But Kohli already marched halfway down to the crease and had no chance to go back.
Till the time Kohli was there on the crease things looked good for the visitors but as soon as the skipper departed the team started panicking and lost two more wickets of Rahane and Vihari in quick succession as both these batsmen were trapped leg before by Starc and Hazlewood. However, India managed to score 233 runs at the loss of six wickets at stumps and will be looking to edge past 300 runs in order to have something on board as a bowling unit to create pressure on Australian batsmen.
