Indian captain Virat Kohli, who was unstoppied 47 runs on the first day of the Melbourne Test, scored a superb half-century on the second day. He is the 20th fifty in Test cricket this year. Thanks to this half century, the partnership between Virat and Pujara also saw a 100+ run partnership for the third wicket. Explain that Virat Kohli was given a life of Kangaroo team only on the score of 47 runs on the first day.
Pujara had completed his half-century on the first day, which is the second half-century that came out of his bat in this series. India’s effort is to add more runs to their score board on the second day so that Australia can be badly beaten to back-foot.
