Virat Kohli (77no) helps India post fighting total in third T20I
Indian captain Virat Kohli scored a brilliant half-century (77 not out, 46 balls, 8 fours, 4 sixes) to help India post a fighting total of 156 for six in the third match of the T20 series against England in Ahmedabad on Tuesday.
Put into bat, India were big trouble, losing three early wickets for just 24 runs in 5.2 overs.
Opening batsmen Rohit Sharma (15), KL Rahul (0) and number three Ishan Kishan (4) fell early as England pace bowlers Chris Jordan (2/35) and Mark Wood (3/31) put India in big trouble.
But Kohli revived the Indian innings with Rishabh Pant (25 off 20 balls) and despite losing the wicketkeeper-batsman and Shreyas Iyer (9), the Indian captain changed gears after the team reached the 100 mark in the 16th over.
Hardik Pandya (17 off 15 balls) played his part towards the latter part of the innings as India scored 56 runs in the final four overs, thanks to their captain''s brilliant stroke-play.
