Kohli had opened the batting in the fifth T20I against England and had smashed 80 from 52. After the game, he revealed that he would open the innings in the IPL as well. Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli’s struggles against spin a cause of concern: VVS Laxman https://m.cricwaves-hrd.appspot.com/cricket/news/articles/nBEpqLssB3_drh-sevawcirc/rohit-sharma-virat-kohlis-struggles-against-spin-a-cause-of-concern-vvs-laxman.html Even though India got the better of England in the three-match ODI series on Sunday, former India cricketer VVS Laxman is concerned with how captain Virat Kohli and vice-captain Rohit Sharma have struggled against England’s spinners. While Rohit failed to read a googly from Adil Rashid and was clean bowled, Kohli perished to Moeen Ali, going back to a delivery that spun back in. Surprised Shardul Thakur was not the man of the match: Virat Kohli https://m.cricwaves-hrd.appspot.com/cricket/news/articles/dSlgL01EKS_drh-sevawcirc/surprised-shardul-thakur-was-not-the-man-of-the-match-virat-kohli.html Indian captain Virat Kohli expressed surprise that pace bowler Shardul Thakur did not win the 'Man of the Match' despite his excellent bowling effort in the final ODI in Pune, against England on Sunday. Shardul finished with figures of 4 for 67 in his 10 overs, dismissing Dawid Malan (50), England skipper Jos Buttler (15) and Liam Livingstone (36). Earlier, he also hammered 30 from 21 with the bat, a knock which featured three sixes. Umpire’s call right now is creating a lot of confusion: Virat Kohli https://m.cricwaves-hrd.appspot.com/cricket/news/articles/4NDncihk7q_drh-sevawcirc/umpires-call-right-now-is-creating-a-lot-of-confusion-virat-kohli.html India captain Virat Kohli feels that the umpire’s call in the Decision Review System (DRS) is creating a lot of unnecessary confusion with regards to lbw dismissals. According to Kohli, the batsman should be out or not out depending on whether or not the ball is hitting the stumps or not. The margins should not come into play, according to Kohli. As per the present rule, at least 50 per cent of the ball should be hitting at least one of the three stumps for the batsman to be adjudged LBW on a review. I am going to open in the IPL as well: Virat Kohli after England triumph https://m.cricwaves-hrd.appspot.com/cricket/news/articles/lzRRfYS2rA_drh-sevawcirc/i-am-going-to-open-in-the-ipl-as-well-virat-kohli-after-england-triumph.html India skipper Virat Kohli has said that he would be happy to open the innings with vice-captain Rohit Sharma in the future as well. India dropped KL Rahul for the final T20I of the series against England. Kohli moved up the order to open the innings with Rohit. The move worked wonders as Kohli and Rohit added 94 for the first wicket. After Rohit was dismissed for 64 from 34, Kohli went on to remain unbeaten on 80 from 52 balls. KL Rahul has been a champions player, he'll continue to be one of our main players: Virat Kohli https://m.cricwaves-hrd.appspot.com/cricket/news/articles/j06FKFm2Ux_drh-sevawcirc/kl-rahul-has-been-a-champions-player-hell-continue-to-be-one-of-our-main-players-virat-kohli.html India captain Virat Kohli backed KL Rahul to come good soon after the opener failed to open his account yet again, in the third match of the T20I series against England. Rahul was bowled for a duck by Mark Wood, playing all across one that nipped back in. The 28-year-old has managed only one run in the series so far. The pressure on Rahul grew after India failed to recover from his early loss and went on to taste defeat in the third T20I by eight wickets. Rohit Sharma’s 161 the defining moment of the series: Virat Kohli https://m.cricwaves-hrd.appspot.com/cricket/news/articles/GdJdLnBs1H_drh-sevawcirc/rohit-sharmas-161-the-defining-moment-of-the-series-virat-kohli.html India clinched the four-match Test series against England by an emphatic 3-1 margin. After losing the first Test rather timidly, they came back brilliantly to dominate England in the next three Tests. After a methodical victory in the second Test in Chennai, India brushed aside the England challenge in the last two Tests in Ahmedabad, inside two and three days respectively. With the win in the final Test, they also booked their place in the World Test Championship (WTC) final. There is always too much noise over spinning tracks: Virat Kohli https://m.cricwaves-hrd.appspot.com/cricket/news/articles/qUc7ySp16K_drh-sevawcirc/there-is-always-too-much-noise-over-spinning-tracks-virat-kohli.html Indian captain Virat Kohli stuck to his stance of defending the pitch used for the day-night Test. The pink-ball Test between India and England ended in under two days, with India winning by 10 wickets. In the following days, there has been numerous criticism about the pitch. While the Indian team has stuck to its guns, a number of former cricketers, particularly from England, have been critical of the surface.
