Team India captain Virat Kohli could not do much in this match and was dismissed by just 21 runs.
After missing the first one-day against Australia on Friday, Indian captain Virat Kohli spoke of the lack of a sixth bowler in the team. After suffering a 66-run defeat at the hands of Australia in the match played in Sydney, Kohli said that unfortunately Hardik Pandya is not fit to bowl right now and we don’t have any other all-round option like Marcus Stoinis and Glenn Maxwell. .
All Indian bowlers fail except Shami
Today has not been a special day for the bowlers of Team India. Barring Mohammed Shami, no bowler could bowl an over with an economy of less than 6. Jaspreet Bumrah, Navdeep Saini and Ravindra Jadeja all scored runs. In the 10 overs of Yuzvendra Chahal, the Australian batsmen scored 89 runs. In such a situation, India had no option to back Chahal.
At the same time, Maxwell-Stoinis bowled 13 overs for his team. Together, they worked as the 5th bowler for their team. Stoinis went out of the ground due to injury, allowing only 6.4 overs.
Batsmen played positive cricket: Kohli
Kohli said that when talking about batting, we had made a plan. All batsmen bat accordingly. That is why there was an interest in our batting. I think we gave ourselves opportunities. Hardik’s innings is the biggest example of this. He said that our batsmen played positive cricket and we will play in the same way.
Captain said – hope from Pandya family
Kohli said it is always difficult without a sixth bowler. When someone in your 5 regular bowlers has a bad day, then the lack of 6th bowler is more likely to happen. We have to find and promote such an option. He said that perhaps this Kandi Pandya family can fulfill it.
