Former India captain Virat Kohli is one of the most popular cricketers in the world. Whenever he comes on the field, fans go gaga over him and the same incident took place when he was recently at the Arun Jaitley stadium for the second Test against Australia as well. He was at the slips when he heard the Delhi crowd chant ‘RCB, RCB’. However, after hearing this, Kohli quickly showed them the jersey asking them to cheer for India. Soon, the chants changed from ‘RCB, RCB’ to ‘India-India’ on Day three of the Test match as well.
As far as the game is concerned, Virat Kohli made crucial contributions with the bat in the Delhi Test against Australia with scores of 44 and 20 as well. India won the match by six wickets to take a 2-0 lead and also retain the Border-Gavaskar Trophy as well.

After the win, captain Rohit Sharma shared: “Fantastic result for us. Looking at how things were yesterday, the way we came back and finished our job was great. Even if we were just one run behind, I felt we were trailing because we had to bat last. I think the bowlers were fantastic, to take 9 wickets today morning is commendable. And then we finished the job with the bat. On a pitch like this, people need to do something different. We were prepared for them coming out and playing shots.”

“Our idea was to not panic and just hit the right areas, waiting for the mistake to happen and that’s exactly what happened. Every game you play in this type of weather, there is some moisture. What I noticed is there is a lot to offer in the first session, but as it goes on it gets slower and there isn’t enough bite. So our focus was keeping it tight in the morning, and these guys are the masters of bowling in these conditions. (Game changing moment) There are lot of moments across four innings, but I thought the partnership between Jadeja and Virat, and then Axar-Ash was brilliant. I think that’s a big help because of the balance we have created for ourselves,” he concluded.
