India and Australia are facing off each other in the third Test of the four-match Test series in Indore. India opted to bat first after winning the toss and were bundled out for just 108 runs in the first innings. However, the bowlers made a brilliant comeback and dismissed the Australian team for 197 runs.
Meanwhile, former Australian captain Mark Waugh took a dig at Virat Kohli in the commentary box and questioned his slip-catching ability. Kohli missed many catches in the first two matches of the ongoing four-match Test series between India and Australia.
“I think his feet are too wide apart. His weight is often on the back of his heels rather than on his feet. Sometimes, he looks like he is not expecting the ball. He has got to be expecting the ball every single delivery. I wasn’t sledging his batting. I was sledging his catching, which he did improve actually. He worked hard on it. But I cannot believe that Virat Kohli hasn’t scored a century in 39 innings.” Waugh said on Star Sports.
He’s started to look ok in the Test match: Mark Waugh
Talking about Kohli’s batting performance in the series so far, he hasn’t provided any great innings till now and in the third Test match which is being played in Indore, Kohli once again continued his poor form and scored only 22 runs in the first innings and got dismissed by Todd Murphy. In the second innings, he was dismissed for 13 runs and this time his wicket was taken by Matthew Kuhnman.
“He is a great player so he is not used to not scoring runs but I did feel like that in Delhi he was getting back to his best. He’s started to look ok in the Test match in India. He got undone by a beautiful bit of bowling from Todd Murphy but he came down the wicket, took the spinners on and he looks like he is ready to explode, for that big score. We know he likes playing against us so maybe this is the opportunity.”
