Australia vs India: Ab de Villiers Appreciates Kohli’s Scoop-shot


Virat Kohli played a fruitful innings of 40 runs from just 24 deliveries which included  2 fours and 2 sixes against Australia in the second T20. During his poised knock, Virat Kohli played a very antithetical shot in reference to his usual nature. Virat Kohli played a perfectly crafted scoop shot which directly cleared the boundary for a six at the Sydney cricket ground.

Fans of the 32-year-old superstar were amazed to see their skipper trying different approaches in his gaming style. Many netizens opined that Virat Kohli might have learned the shot from none other than his RCB counterpart AB de Villiers. Skipper Virat Kohli read Andrew Tye’s fifth stump delivery beforehand as the Indian skipper walked across the stumps to play a well-crafted overhead six. Virat Kohli seemingly surprised himself as well as Sydney’s crowd with the mesmerizing shot.

ABD approved Kohli’s brilliant shot

The Indian skipper, while talking about his scoop shot, stated that he will be texting ABD to get his opinion about the shot. “It (scoop over fine leg) was a bit of funny moment, surprised myself there, I will send AB a text tonight and see what he thinks of it”, said Kohli.

However, Mr.360 did not take much time  to respond as he took his Twitter account to appreciate Virat Kohli’s shot.

India Clinched The T20i Series

Team India sinked their teeth deep in the shortest format of the game after falling on their face in the ODIs against the Aussies. Virat Kohli and men dominated the hosts in the first two T20Is to seal the series in a comfortable manner. Indians first restricted the Australians from chasing the score of  162 runs in the first T20 and then eased past the Aussies in the second one to grab the limited-over series. India’s all-rounders, Ravindra Jadeja and Hardik Pandya, came up with the goods with their bat in the first two T20Is for the “Men in Blue”. The T20 series win will seemingly boost India’s confidence before indulging into the much-awaited “Border Gavaskar” Test series against the Australians.
