IND vs AUS: The first match of the Border-Gavaskar Test series will be played between India and Australia from February 9 at the Vidarbha Cricket Association cricket ground in Nagpur. The dominance of spin bowlers can be clearly seen in this Test series. In such a situation, former Indian captain Virat Kohli, who has not played a single century in Test cricket for a long time, is seen practicing hard on the nets.
Virat Kohli’s bat has been seen speaking fiercely against Australia in the Test format so far. However, in the year 2019, he managed to score a century in this format for the last time. In such a situation, everyone’s eyes are going to be on his performance. According to the reports coming out about the Nagpur pitch, spinners will start getting help from the first day of the game.
Regarding this, Virat Kohli practiced in a different way on the nets, in which according to the Indian Express, during practice in the nets, Kohli fiercely scratched a part of the pitch with his studs. After this, he practiced sweep and reverse sweep shots on the balls of left-arm spin bowler Saurabh Kumar.
Nathan Lyon can become a big threat to Virat Kohli
The Australian team has an experienced off-spinner in the form of Nathan Lyon on this tour, who has troubled the Indian batsmen even before. Kohli has also been seen in trouble many times in front of Lyon’s bowling and that is why he has handed over his wicket to this bowler in Test cricket 7 times so far.
