HIGHLIGHTS

  • Adam Zampa cleaned bowled Virat Kohli in 2nd T20I
  • India beat Australia by 6 wickets in Nagpur
  • India drew level in the 3-match series

Australia leg-spinner Adam Zampa, on Friday, September 23, dismissed Virat Kohli for the eighth time in 29 matches in international cricket. It’s the most times an Australian bowler has dismissed the Delhi-born Kohli at the highest level.

Out of them, Kohli got out ‘caught by fielders’ five times while he got out bowled twice. In the second T20I between India and Australia at VCA Stadium in Mohali, Zampa cleaned up the 33-year-old Virat with an absolute peach.

Kohli tried to shimmy down the track and play the ball on the leg side. However, he was beaten in flight and he missed the ball altogether. The ball went and hit the stumps and Kohli had to go back after scoring 11 runs off six balls with two fours.

It was also the third time Zampa got the better of Kohli in T20Is. Kohli’s troubles against leg-spinners in T20Is are also evident from the fact that Kohli has got out to New Zealand leggie Ish Sodhi.

As far as Zampa is concerned, he went past the Australian fast bowler Pat Cummins, who had dismissed Kohli in seven out of 28 innings.

Kohli earlier returned to form after he scored his maiden T20I century against Mohammad Nabi’s Afghanistan in a Super Four match of Asia Cup 202 at Dubai International Cricket Stadium.

However, after failing in two innings against Australia, Kohli will be looking to make amends in the third and final T20I.

In the meantime, India beat Australia by six wickets in the second T20I to draw level in the three-match series.
