Virat’s 40th century, against Australia after 6 years

Kohli scored his 40th ODI century today. This is his second century in Nagpur. He had earlier scored an unbeaten century of 115 against Australia in October 2013.

Kohli has been the leading century scorer for India in ODIs after Sachin Tendulkar (49 ODI centuries). Virat scored his seventh century against Australia on Tuesday before Pat Cummins claimed his wicket when he was on 116. Marcus Stoinis caught him out.

Bad start for India

The Indian team started poorly. In the very first over, Rohit Sharma (0) became the victim of Cummins on the last ball, caught by Adam Junka.

After this, Shikhar Dhawan (21) was sent to the pavilion by Maxwell when India were at 38. Dhawan hit 4 fours in 29 balls.

Virat-Shankar duet

India’s third wicket was lost in the form of Ambati Rayudu (18). After this, Virat shaped the innings with Vijay Shankar and made the team cross 150. Vijay Shankar was run out at a personal score of 46. He hit five 4s and a six, spending 41 balls.

2 consecutive shocks by Junka

Kedar Jadhav (11) could not do anything special. He returned to the pavilion and that was the 5th wicket down for India. In the second ball of the 33rd Australian over by Junka, Jadhav was caught out by Finch. On the next ball, MS Dhoni gave an easy catch to Usman Khawaja, with India’s sixth wicket falling on the score of 171.
