David Warner Explains MS Dhoni's Role In Virat Kohli's Captaincy

Chahal plays for Royal Challengers Bangalore, which is captained by Virat Kohli. It has been a happy hunting ground for the Indians with both India captain Virat Kohli (211) and Ajinkya Rahane (188) getting big hundreds here previous year against New Zealand in the third Test.

It's not the first time Kohli has angered the Aussies and there's clearly still no love lost between the two sides. Last time India played in Indore, Dhoni's unbeaten 92 gave India a fighting 22-run victory over South Africa.

After an early stumble, Virat and Rohit Sharma helped resuscitate India's innings. Later Steven Smith and Travis Head put up a third-wicket partnership of 76 runs.

Sehwag then went on to heap praises on Kohli, not in the usual way but in the typical Sehwagesque manner. Well, the Baggy Green won the ODI series 3-2.

For a man who churns out hundreds with utmost ease, getting out one short of it must have been heart-breaking. With bright sun after three days of rain, the 50-over day-night promises an interesting match between India and Ausssies.

While the issue is still rolling on news and even before Kohli responded to it.

Kohli had done a tremendous job before falling victim to a rash pull, thus missing out on his 18th ODI ton. Dhoni delivered the finishing touches and India romped away to a challenging total.

He wants to change a few things before the next game in Indore. India won the match by 26 runs via the Duckworth Lewis method.

Australia captain Steve Smith did not dwell on the Kohli incident after the match, preferring to point out his side's failings with the bat.

Australia are 2-0 down in the five-match series and need to win the next match to stay alive in the series. The duo capitalised on the exhausted fast bowlers and some sloppy fielding from the Australians.

When Virat Kohli comes to the crease to bat, there is a sense of relief among all Indian cricket lovers. "You can certainly see the difference in the energy levels and the way they go about their business", he further said. After this, Virat added 55 runs for the fourth wicket with Kedar Jadhav.

Virat Kohli and coach Ravi Shastri believe that shuffling the winning lineup will not be a great move, especially in this crucial third ODI.

India crossed 200 in the 38th over, but the big blow came just prior. Rohit, who did not look much confident from the beginning failed to connect properly a faster delivery from N M Coulter-Nile who opened Aussi, attack along with Pat Cummings, was caught by the owler after scoring only 7 off fourteen balls. Overall, he faced 107 balls and hit eight fours. In both matches, the Australian bowling has been commendable, but their batsmen have been faltering against a well-balanced Indian bowling unit.
