Virat Kohli Promotes Shivam Dube In Batting Order, Twitter Applauds Skipper

Virat Kohli Promotes Shivam Dube In Batting Order, Twitter Applauds Skipper


As Dube shone at number three, Twitter was flooded with praises for the all-rounder, while Virat Kohli was also lauded for showing faith in the youngster.

As far as the match is concerned, the visitors won the toss and invited the hosts to bat. 

Indian batsmen including skipper Virat Kohli got starts only to lose their wicket to some disciplined bowling.

Kohli, soon after edging past Rohit Sharma as the world’s most prolific T20I scorer with 2,563 runs, mistimed a cut to be caught at short third-man for 19 off Kesrick Williams.

But riding on Dube’s 54 and wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant’s 22-ball 33 not out laced with three fours and a six, India posted 170/7 in their quota of 20 overs.

India lead the 3-match series 1-0 after winning the opening encounter by 6 wickets in Hyderabad.
