After a suffocating failure at wankhede there were many loopholes In team India to scrutinize. But first thing first Captain Virat Kohli is back at his favourite Position No. 3.
Unlike wankhede Rajkot didn’t have anything to offer for the tall fast bowlers from Australia. Shikhar and Rohit stood firmly in the power play and scored runs without taking much risk. Rohit Sharma after a good start of 40 odd runs perished to Zampa while trying to sweep him.
From then Left hand opener Shikhar Dhawan played an incredible innings alongside the captain which took team India to formidable position. He was in great touch and played spectacular shots all around the park in the middle overs Until he dig the short ball from Richardson which went straight to the hands of Starc.
Kholi like any other day scored his 50 and shifted gears pretty much comfortably. But it was KL Rahul who stole the show in the end.
The uncertainty about his place didn’t bother the wicket keeper batsmen even a bit. In fact he played the best shots which he failed to connect while he was opening in the same series. His scintillating knock (80) took India to 340 mark on a batting friendly pitch.
All said the batsmen rectified their mistakes and came back pretty strongly can the Bowlers rattle the mighty Australians and save the series??
Or are we all set for another heartbreak of this year?
