𝕁𝕚𝕠𝕋𝕧𝕧𝕚𝕟𝕖𝕖 – Former Australian cricket team captain and veteran cricketer Steve Smith believes that the absence of Virat Kohli.
The regular captain of the Indian team will be a big loss for him. Virat Kohli has returned home after the first Test match for the birth of his first child.
In his absence Ajinkya Rahane, the vice-captain of the Indian team, will take over the captaincy of the team.
But Steve Smith believes that because of Virat Kohli not being in the team, the Indian team will suffer a huge loss.
However, he was very appreciative of Virat Kohli’s return home. Steve Smith said, I am sure that he will be under pressure to complete the tour of Australia.
But he stuck to his decision and decided to go home due to the birth of his first child. He should be commended for this decision.
Virat Kohli’s absence in the team from other matches can prove to be a big loss for India. He batted very well in the first innings of the day-night Test against Australia.
I had told him before also and I am saying again that even at such a time, Virat, who holds his decision, should be appreciated.
In the Australian team, India were all out for just 36 runs in the second innings of the first Test match. And Australia won that match by 8 wickets.
This was the lowest score in Test cricket history of the Indian team. In this match, Australia also managed to register a win due to losing in the first innings.
“The way our bowlers bowled on the third day of the Test was superb bowling in the last five years,” Smith said.
The way our bowlers bowled was quite excellent. Many times the bowler tries and bowls in a positive manner. And that day our bowlers did exactly that.
Steve Smith has been battling his injury since the first Test. And he left the practice session in the middle before the Adelaide Test.
They say that they still have some problems but it will be fixed. Smith said, this is something that I have to fix soon. Since 2014, I am having this problem.
