live cricket score: Virat Kholi Said the group management will review its batting strategies following his falling into No. 4 to allow in-form KL Rahul bat in his one-drop position resulted in an underwhelming batting campaign plus also a 10-wicket defeat against Australia in the first ODI. It is a really powerful Australian group and if you do not play well enough they’ll hurt you and also we noticed that” Kohli said in the post-match presentation. “With bat hand, I do not believe we had sufficient aim to go out there and take risks, get those additional runs and place the bowlers under stress ”
Although opener Shikhar Dhawan and Rahul, at No. 3, increased a century stand, they weren’t able to place the Australian bowlers under stress once set.
“I believe in stages we were overly respectful of the bowlers,” Virat Kohli said. “We did not take the match by the scruff of its neck. Having said that it is a different challenge for us to bounce back out of here.
“We have had this discussion several times previously also. Due to the manner, KL was batting, we’ve attempted to match him at the batting line-up. However, I really don’t think that it’s gone our way once I batted at four probably might need to rethink that one,” Kohli said.
“It is about giving some men chances. Every now and then, it is all about putting people up there and analyzing them. People today will need to relax rather than dread with a single game. I’m allowed to experiment a little bit and neglect occasionally. Now was one of those times it did not come off.”
We couldn’t take early wickets. “Four wickets have been missing, that is where we lost the momentum,” he stated, speaking to Rahul, himself, Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant becoming out in the area of 28 runs. Asked about the re-jig from the top-order, Dhawan said, “That is the captain’s pick. Even Rahul was batting well. Perhaps we’ll rethink.”
