Winning both their warm-up games against quality sides like England and Australia, Indian cricket team rang a warning bell for all the other teams ahead of the start of the Super 12 stage of ICC T20 World Cup 2021. Regular skipper Virat Kohli was rested for the game, well not actually as he did bowl two overs, as India looked to try out the sixth-bowling option. Bowling after a long time, he delivered two economical overs, conceding only 12 runs. pic.twitter.com/H7KrieRLdz — Ves (@Ves84442098) October 20, 2021 Apart from his bowling, his other major contribution in the game came in form of an advice that he gave to leg-spinner Rahul Chahar and it helped him get rid of the dangerous-looking Glenn Maxwell. Carrying on his IPL form, the RCB all-rounder stitched a crucial partnership with Steve Smith for the fourth wicket and helped the Aussies recover from three early setbacks. Having faced enough deliveries, Maxwell was ready to go all out on the Indian bowlers but his innings was brought to an end by Chahar in the 12 over of the innings.

Maxwell was clearly trying to play with the mind of young Indian leggie and Kohli, who captained Maxwell in the just-concluded IPl, sensed that and straightaway took him under his arm and shared an important piece of advice. Following Kohli’s advice, Chahar bowled an outside off-stump line which moved further away from Maxwell after pitching, making it extremely difficult to slog-sweep him. Kohli’s wisdom and Chahar’s execution worked wonders as Maxwell fell into the trap and was played on. The International Cricket Council (ICC) shared a video of the incident on its Instagram account and praised Kohli for coming up with a genius plan to get rid of his RCB teammate. View this post on Instagram “Maxwell's lovely reverse-sweep. Kohli's advice to Chahar Chahar fires back with a wicket. There's a lot to appreciate in this passage of play,” ICC captioned the video on Instagram. Fans were divided in their opinions as some praised Kohli’s brilliant advice, while others felt that it was Chahar who deserved the credit for doing all the hard work but it was Kohli who stole the limelight. Some fans even joked that by helping out Chahar, Kohli had betrayed his IPL teammate.

(@ocp_sumit) October 20, 2021If it would've been Rohit instead of Kohli here, then everyone would've start saying "Rohit real captain" , "Virat Panauti" etc. Believe it or not, Virat is a great leader. You simply just can't keep him out of the game — Vansh Korat (@imVKorat) October 20, 2021Maxwell be like - achha sila diya tune mere pyaar ka — Jagdish Kumar (@ShreeHanuman2) October 20, 2021 pic.twitter.com/NJF6F98Ivf — Dnyanraj Nil.nk 02 (@Dnyanraj0) October 20, 2021No matter which side you are on, one thing is for sure that it’s hard to keep Kohli out of a game. Whether his advice helped Chahar or not that’s debatable but the fact that he was ready to help out a young bowler shows how brilliant of a leader he is. With this being his final hurrah as T20 skipper, we are sure that all the players will be eager to win it for him and give him the farewell that he deserves. View the full article
The current Test cricket roster for the Indian side is being touted as one of the best sides to have played in this format, in the history of the game, especially because of the kind of feats they have achieved as a unit, barring the WTC final (and we won’t talk about it because we hate dealing with heavy losses). Anyhow, making a stunning comeback on the final day of the second Test against England at the iconic Lord’s cricket ground in London to win it all and gain a 1-0 lead in the series became the latest addition to this squad’s biggest achievements. View this post on Instagram At the helm of such a proud run remains the captain of the Indian cricket team, Virat Kohli, who became the fourth most successful captain in the history of Test cricket after booking the 37th win under his name. To add to the kind of impact he has on his team, the team speech that he gave ahead of England’s second innings on Day 5 managed to find its way online and has gone viral ever since. pic.twitter.com/VGpD8Fo3Wa — pant shirt fc (@pant_fc) August 16, 2021 “If I see anyone laughing in front of their players, see what happens. Got it? For Sixty overs they should feel like hell out there,” Kohli could be heard saying in the team hurdle. And to his credit, the kind of intensity brought along by his teammates, especially Mohammed Siraj, ended up working in their favour as the entire English batting order collapsed for just 120 runs, giving the Men in Blue a convincing 151-run victory. View this post on Instagram Having said that, those who love to criticise the Indian captain did not see any way in which Kohli contributed towards India’s winning cause. Instead, they went on to harp about how the skipper has been struggling to put up numbers on the scoreboard for a long time now and how he ended up dropping a crucial and simple Jos Buttler catch which could have cost them the match. No test performances in the last 670 days. Dropped Butler's catch at a crucial stage yesterday but yet take all the credit. He is lucky the English have a shitty batting line ATM. — Zee khan (@Zeekhan14909841) August 17, 2021When VK got out early, some fans came up with the idea of removing him as a test captain. Few days later his captaincy earned India a famous win. — Farrukh Rz (@FarrukhRz) August 17, 2021I'd rather a Kane Williamson who encourages his team to express themselves than curb their instincts and dull them into being a clone of yourself https://t.co/lw9BgEc1fZ — A comment & 3 slow (@krishnavallabh) August 18, 2021This is really ridiculous ...it is a game of cricket, not war behaving like a dictator https://t.co/cWjgYlrJ4u — ABHIJIT NAIR (@Rahul_bill) August 18, 2021An unlikeable and totally self-obsessed man. I'd much rather have Root as my captain personally https://t.co/wvBx3vjm2Q — Nicholas (@ncarowland) August 17, 2021What happened to this intensity when they faced a good batting line-up of NZ in the WTC Final? Why didn't it work? https://t.co/qwRB5hCCp6 — Aman (@cric_ap) August 18, 2021The second Test makes Kohli only the third Indian captain after Kapil Dev (1986) and Mahendra Singh Dhoni (2014) to win a red-ball match at Lord’s and the sheer experience of going through such a trying five-day period shows why it will forever be remembered as one of the most iconic Test wins.
