On the day two of the second Test match against South Africa, Indian team managed to reach 183/5 with Hardik Pandya (11*) and Kohli (85*). Everyone is impressed by Kohli batting as he held together India’s innings with a classy knock which was studded with eight boundaries. But, earlier, former Indian batsman, Virender Sehwag expressed his unhappiness over Kohli’s decision as he made several changes in the second test match.
Sehwag said: “Watching Virat Kohli exclude Shikhar Dhawan for just one Test failure, and Bhuvneshwar for no reason at all, Kohli should drop himself in the third Test at Johannesburg, if he fails to perform in Centurion.”
He further added: “Excluding Bhuvneshwar wasn’t the right decision. Citing that Ishant might benefit with his height, Virat Kohli has hurt Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s self-confidence.”
“They could have played Ishant in place of any other bowler. Bhuvneshwar performed well in Cape Town and excluding him like this isn’t justified.”
But at the end, Kohli is performing really well till now in the 2nd test match.
