This time, Virat Kohli received yet another applauds from a top player. It is Dale Steyn, the speedster from South Africa. The bowler himself is well known for his aggression at play. The South Africa top player tweeted, “Love Virat’s aggression. Imagine if he was a fast bowler.” It is clearly an accolade for Kohli, who has been leading India through consecutive victory stretches in test cricket. Dale Steyn has been the top fast bowler and used to be a nightmare for any batsmen. It is a privilege for the young captain to have achieved such a compliment from him.
The way how India turned the match at Bangalore was iconic. The team passed down the final inning to Australia posing a target, which was barely a challenge. It was obviously a match on Australia’s side. Their batsmen were playing carefree until the 90s, when India’s spinners spearheaded by Ravichandran Ashwin, began the attack. In no time, Australia lost all its batsmen and India’s bowlers finished the game at 112 all out. It was quite a show where India came back after a massive defeat of 333 runs in the first test. In an after-match interview Captain Virat Kohli pointed out accurately that it was all about team effort.
Nevertheless, the zeal of India’s players was noteworthy. After the thrilling victory, naturally skipper Virat Kohli came into limelight again. The India captain is notoriously famous as an aggressive player, which is quite apparent in his play. In the recent match, as well, a brief tussle with Aussie captain Steven Smith was witnessed. His aggression came out as a befitting reply to the visitors with bowling, even if, the team could not do more in batting. The fielding stances of newly included player of the team like Wriddhiman Saha highlighted the persistence of the players as a team.
