Virat Kohli departs; India in trouble with fall of 6th wicket in IND vs AUS 2nd ODI

Australia chose to bowl first after winning the toss in the second ODI against India in Vizag. Mitchell Starc has been impressive, taking early wickets including three in successive deliveries. Despite efforts from KL Rahul and Virat Kohli, Starc dismissed Rahul and later, Hardik Pandya was caught by a stunning one-handed catch by Steve Smith. Nathan Ellis dismissed Virat Kohli after he looked good.

Kohli departs for just 31 runs off 35 balls, continuing his trend of getting out to new bowlers. The delivery was full and slightly nipped in from off as Kohli attempted to clip it across the line and missed, getting hit on the pads in front of middle stump.


He asked Jadeja for a review but wisely opted not to take it. India’s situation gets worse as they continue to lose wickets. Kohli is out LBW to Nathan Ellis, scoring 4 fours during his innings.

India 71-6 in 15.2 overs.

Now Ravindra Jadeja and Axar Patel will look to build a partnership to help India reach a respectable score that they can defend. Jadeja is currently playing at 12 runs in 25 balls.
