Fans Are Hailing ‘Captain’ Virat Kohli For Predicting Prasidh Krishna’s Brilliance: The Indian cricket team thrashed England by 66 runs in the first ODI match at the Maharashtra Cricket Stadium, Pune to take the lead in the ongoing three-match series.

Before the game kickstarted, Virat Kohli lost the toss, and team India was asked to bat first. The home side amassed a big total of 317 runs for 5 in the allotted 50 overs. Responding to this, England cricketers started on a great note however they lost their way and were eventually all out for 251 runs in the 43rd over of the game.

Meanwhile, young Indian bowler Prasidh Krishna who was playing his maiden ODI match impressed one and all with his stunning performance. Krishna became the first-ever Indian to take a 4 wicket-haul on ODI debut. He ended up with the figures of 4 wickets for 54 runs, which also included a maiden over.

Though, he had a disastrous start with the new ball as he conceded 37 runs in his first three overs. However, the Indian skipper showed his faith in him and gave him another chance. And Krishna made full use of the opportunity given to him by bouncing back in style by picking 4 wickets for 17 runs in his next 5.1 overs.

Virat Kohli’s prediction: It was last year when the Indian skipper Virat Kohli had predicted that Prasidh Krishna “could possibly be an X-factor” for India and Prasidh was exactly what Kohli had predicted.
