Virat Kohli Finally Talked About The Concussion Controversy : The Men in Blue kickstarted the three-match T20I series against Australia by making the Australians taste the ‘IPL flavor’. While the game turned out to be pretty interesting from both sides, but the fans got to witness a lot of drama.
Well, the Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja suffered from a concussion after he played a powerful knock of 44* runs off 23 balls and was replaced by Yuzvendra Chahal for the second innings.
Yuzvendra Chahal walked in and turned the tables for the team with his impeccable bowling. He bowled four overs and this raised a lot of eyebrows, including the head coach of Australian team Justin Langer, who was seen fuming in anger when he got to know about the same.
The controversy has become one of the most discussed topics on social media today. Meanwhile, after India won the game, the Indian skipper talked about the Concussion controversy and how it turned out to be in favor for them. He also heaped in praises for Yuzvendra Chahal, who stole the show with his brilliant performance. Virat said:
“There were no plans of having Yuzi in the game. Concussion replacements are a strange thing. Today, it worked for us. Yuzi showed character to squeeze the opponents,”
Furthermore, Virat also praised Ravindra Jadeja who played beautifully during the last overs. Praising him, Virat said:
“I thought they had a great start. They were cruising. The batters offered us a few wickets. That is T20 cricket for you. In Australia, you need to play hard and show intensity till the end. He batted beautifully in the last game. Natarajan looks like he can improve a lot. Chahar bowled well as well. Chahal got us back in the game. Hardik’s catch was a game changer as well,”
