India regular captain Virat Kohli posted a picture on his Twitter handle. Kohli was sporting smart looking shades and was wearing something in blue 9we guess it is the jersey). Surprisingly, former South African legend Herschelle Gibbs who follows the India skipper on his social handles, saw the post and posted what he felt. Apparently, Gibbs felts it was Kohli’s John Lennon look. Lennon is the Beatles star from the 1980s. Seems Gibbs is a big Kohli fan. The South African was an aggressive character during his heydays on the field.
Here is the post of Virat Kohli.
And here is what Gibbs reckoned.
Currently, Kohli is not a part of the Indian cricket team that is taking on the Kiwis in the ongoing three-match T20I series. The Rohit Sharma-led side got hammered by the Kiwis in the 1st T20I at Wellington. Williamson-led Blackcaps now have a 1-0 lead in the series. Rohit would hope India can level things at Auckland, which is again going to be a small ground.
“It was a tough game. We were outplayed in all three departments. We didn’t start well and we knew that 200 wasn’t going to be an easy chase,” Rohit said after the match.
“We have chased such (big) targets in the past and that is why we played with eight batsmen. But we didn’t have (even) small partnerships and that made it tougher. New Zealand though played well, they had partnerships. We need to go to Auckland, have a look at the conditions and take it from there,” he added.
India’s Predicted XI:
Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant, Shubman Gill, MS Dhoni, Dinesh Karthik, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Mohammed Shami, Yuzvendra Chahal, Khaleel Ahmed
