In the 2nd ODI match at Pallek, Virat Kohli became the puzzler to the spinner Dhannajaya. Dhoni and Bhuvnesh made a strong batting and India won the match.
Kohli did not play in his usual 3 rd level yesterday. Kholi was got out in Dhananjaya’s googly in 4 runs. His typical royal cover drive became Stoke Becky Kohli.
Speaking at the end of the game, Kohli said:
Very exciting game. I am happy with the success of the fans and the good guys, finally. T
When we were 110/1 in the 230-run drive, we all wanted to get a batting opportunity. We do not have any regrets.
Even if I was in the 3rd level, I would be Paul in that particular ball. Dhanajaya threw such a boon. We thought of him as a good off-the-league for the off-spinner, but he managed to take 4 wickets at quickly.
Next time we will be more cautious against him. The pitch in the right spot and the control of him is a commendable, appreciative.
Thus said Virat.
Upul Tharanga: It is disappointing to come closer and we tried a lot of 100 runs for India. But could not bring the wicket down. Bowling and fielding have improved.
