India vs Cricket Australia XI: After impressing everyone with his glittering half-century in the tour game, India captain Virat Kohli starred with the ball as he picked up a wicket against Cricket Australia XI on Saturday. However, what was interesting was Kohli’s hilarious reaction after getting the wicket of centurion Harry Nielsen. As the visitors struggled for wickets against the CA XI, Kohli took the bowling responsibilities upon himself to break the partnership. What was interesting that Kohli got the wicket of Nielsen with a half tracker. Keeping in mind the context of the match, it was an important wicket for the Indians.

Earlier, Kohli hit a brilliant 64 off 87 balls. After putting up a decent total of 358 in the first innings, the Indian team failed to replicate their good show with the bowl as Cricket Australia XI toiled the bowlers all around the park and score a mammoth 544. The hosts took a massive lead of 186 runs.
The form of Indian bowlers has become a point of concern for captain Kohli as the first Test of the four-match series is just a few days away. India will start as favourites against a formidable Australian team at Adelaide in the first Test, which is starting from December 6.
