India’s star batter Virat Kohli has a massive fan following. The 33-year-old has made a name for himself with his dominating batting over the years. He also captained the national team for over eight years. Although Kohli has stepped down from captaincy, he is still a vital cog in India’s batting line up. As the batter recently scored his long-awaited 71st century, he has been receiving praises from all corners.
Currently, the 33-year-old is taking part in his team’s bilateral series against Australia. Kohli had a troublesome outing in the first T20I as he was dismissed for only two runs. But as has been the case these days, the batter looks relaxed no matter how he performs on the field. Now, as the team has reached Nagpur for the second T20I, Kohli was caught having an interaction with Indian entrepreneur Ashneer Grover who also appeared on Shark Tank Season 1 as a judge.
Grover shared the picture of two individuals enjoying a casual chat. “What could the Delhi boys with a common passion for ‘Ben Stokes’ be discussing? All the best @imVkohli for the match in Nagpur!!” Grover captioned the post.
India looking to level the series
After a defeat in the first T20I, Rohit Sharma-led India will be looking to level the series when the two teams meet on Friday (23 September) in Nagpur. Jasprit Bumrah is certain to make a comeback to the side but it’s not sure who will be making way for the pacer. All three Indian pacers (Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel, and Umesh Yadav) had a terrible outing in the first game as they leaked runs.
While one change in bowling looks certain, it will be interesting to see if captain Sharma makes any chances to the batting lineup. There was no issue with India’s batting as they scored a massive 208/6. Hardik Pandya starred with his 30-ball 71*. Suryakumar Yadav (46) and KL Rahul (55) also chipped in.
