Virat Kohli was in sublime form in the third ODI against Australia in Chennai on Wednesday until he fell to a tame shot. The former Indian cricket team captain played with responsibility in a 270-run chase and scored 54 in 72 balls. It was not a typical fluent innings from Kohli but a gritty one. With boundaries hard to come by, Kohli relied on running between the wickets before latching onto the loose deliveries to script a fighting knock.
There was a hint of fight between him and the Australian all-rounder. marcus stoinis too, during India’s innings. In the 21st over, as Stoinis was walking back to the crease, Kohli bumped into him. And that was it, as Stoinis kept walking with a smirk on his face.
