2nd ODI India vs Australia Adelaide: So, why is the picture of former captain MS Dhoni advising India skipper Virat Kohli trending? A picture of MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli surfaced on social space during the 2nd ODI at Adelaide, where Kohli was spotted taking some advice from Dhoni. Fans went overboard as they commentated on the picture and reacted. Some fans felt Dhoni is a better leader and some wished India win the match and level the ongoing three-match ODI series at Adelaide.
Earlier in the day, Australia won the toss and opted to bat first. Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Shami removed the Australian opener early. It was Shaun Marsh who looked in top form as he slammed a fifty and is currently unbeaten on 87 inching close to a century.
Here is how fans reacted to the Dhoni-Kohli picture:
At the time of filing the copy, Australia was 202/5 in 39 overs, with Maxwell and Marsh in the middle.
The Men-in-Blue lost the first contest at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) by 34 runs and the world no.2 side will be looking to regain dominance in the second match. In the do-or-die affair, India will rely heavily on the top three of Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan and skipper Virat Kohli once again, as none of the lower and middle order batsmen, barring former skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, clicked in Sydney.
