India have defeated Australia in 2nd T20 by 6 wickets. With this win India have sealed the T20 series and Virat Kohli has become the only Indian Captain to win Test, ODI and T20 (all three formats) in Australian soil.
Chasing a mammoth total of 194 runs at SCG was never easy but the contribution of every single player helped India to climb up this mountain. Dhawan and Rahul helped India to build a solid foundation and the likes of Virat Kohli, Hardik Pandya and Shreyas Iyer just fired at the end.
But the biggest highlight of today’s match was Virat playing the ramp shot. Virat is never seen playing unconventional shots, but when your best friend is Mr. 360 you are forced to. Fans started calling out Virat Kohli as Ab De Villiers 2.0 across all social media platforms after that shot.
During IPL 2020, we saw the run machine playing similar kind of a stroke and then thanking ABD from the field. Now the bowlers need to be extra cautious, King Kohli has added one more shot to his bucket after his favourite cover drive. The ramp shot went flying into the stand and we are pretty sure, Virat would call up Mr 360 and thank him for gifting this shot.
Here are few tweets:
The third T20 is set to take place on 8th December at SCG. While India will be looking to finish the series with 3-0, Australia will be playing for pride and will comeback strong as they have nothing to loose. With the upcoming T20 World Cup in 2021, the time has come for the captain and the management to invest in players they are looking at and give them ample of opportunities to prove their worth.
