1st Test Adelaide: So this one picture where Nathan Lyon is seen shadow practising his batting just behind India captain Virat Kohli is creating a lot of social buzz. It seems to have become the ‘thing’ on the social space. Lyon and Kohli against each other were pitted as one of the biggest battles to watch out for this series and the contest seemed to have lived up to the billing. On Day 3 in Adelaide, Lyon had the rough to work with and Kohli was up against him. Kohli showed grit and patience to counter Lyon from the rough, but finally, it seems it has become 1-0 after the first face-off as the Australians favour who managed to scalp him for the record sixth time. No other bowler has got Kohli as many times.
Kohli was out for 34 off 104 balls, but a picture seems to have gone viral and it is initiating a lot of funny talks on the social space, where netizens used all their creativity to come up with these.
Kohli was eventually dismissed by Lyon for 34 off 104 balls, an uncharacteristic, yet effective knock from the Indian skipper ended in the same fashion Lyon was shadowing. But Kohli’s 71-run stand with Cheteshwar Pujara has sure given India ascendancy at stumps on Day as the tourists lead by 166 runs.
