In the first match of the three-match ODI series against New Zealand, Virat Kohli has returned to the pavilion after getting out cheaply. He scored 8 runs in 10 balls. Santner trapped him.
The first match of the three-match ODI series is being played between India and New Zealand. Former India captain Virat Kohli is going through a great form. In the beginning of the first month of this year, Kohli has scored two centuries, but in the first ODI against New Zealand, his bat was calm and he was dismissed cheaply and returned to the pavilion.
The Indian team got off to a good start batting first against New Zealand. Shubman Gill and Rohit Sharma added 60 runs for the first wicket. After Rohit’s dismissal, Virat Kohli came to the crease and was looking in great rhythm. But returned to the pavilion within 10 balls. He also hit a brilliant four in the innings. Mitchell Santner clean bowled him.
In the third ODI against Sri Lanka, Virat Kohli played a strong inning of 166 runs, which was also the second best innings of his career. He hit 13 fours and 8 sixes in 110 balls. Seeing his strong innings, the fans were hoping that runs would come out of Virat’s bat against New Zealand as well, but in the first ODI, as soon as Kohli was clean bowled in Santner’s over, silence spread in the stadium and Kohli himself also looked quite surprised.
What did Arjun Tendulkar say about the Mankading runout that sparked a controversy, said – there is no problem with the rules, but with himself
After his dismissal, Ishaan Kishan also came to the crease, but he could not last long and got out after scoring 5 runs in 14 balls. Meanwhile, Shubman Gill scored the third century of his ODI career.
