Yesterday, the Indian cricket team set the ground on fire in the first One Day International going on against England with their impeccable performance. Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma gave a power-packed performance and led India to win the first match of the tri-series.
After winning the toss, Indian team decided to bowl first.The England cricket team gave the target of 268 runs to Indian cricket team.
The Indian openers, Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan gave a blockbuster start to the second innings of the match for Indian team. Both the cricketers gave a power-packed performance.
However, it was the partnership of Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli that made everyone sit on the edge of the edge of their seats.
With a powerful strike rate of 119.57, Rohit Sharma was unstoppable last night, he scored 137 runs and smashed 15 fours and 4 sixes. On the other hand, Virat Kohli scored 75 runs in 82 balls. With an amazing strike rate of 91.46, he smashed 7 fours and 0 sixes.
Virat Kohli was dismissed for a superb delivery from Adil Rashid. Although, Rashid had a tough day, yesterday, but he managed to send the skipper of Indian cricket back to pavilion, without letting him score a century. Jos Buttler was very quick to dislodge the bails quickly effecting the dismissal.
Here, have a look at the Virat Kohli’s wicket :
