hate loosing, love playing for India - Virat Kohli
Indian cricket team having spend more than 2 months in Australia displayed performance of high quality. They were clinical from start to finish. Indian captain MS Dhoni won the toss and decided to bat at Adelaide oval. But wicket was not as flat as he hoped before the start.


The two paced nature of the wicket meant that the openers needed to bat cautiously against the disciplined Pakistan attack.

India got off to a good start with both Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan rotating singles and running well between the wickets. Irafan Khan, the tall pakistani bowler, extracted good bounce from the pitch and trouble Shikhar Dhwan a bit with high rising ball. But the opening batsmen played out the spell will good technique and concentration and even hooked Irfan for a mighty six later.

Rohit got out trying to up the scoring rate. Then the best batsmen in the world, Virat Kohli, took the center stage. None of the Pakistan bowlers was able to leave an impression on him. Kohli, just 26 years of age, batted splendidly to score a brilliant century. He was ably supported by ever exciting Suresh Raina who scored a brisk half century to knock the stuffing out of Pakistan  cricket team. India amassed score of 300 runs.

Chasing 301 for victory, Pakistan never got going. They took the Indian bowling lightly, Most media reports suggested that Indian bowling attack is poor. But much to everyone's surprise Indian bowlers ran in hard and bowled with extreme speeds. This was illustrated in the dismissal of Younus Khah who failed to control the sharp delivery from Mohammad Shami and was caught by MS Dhoni.

Umesh Yadav later broke the back of Pakistan batting line up by picking up two quick wickets in single over. Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja, the two spin bowlers of India, tighhtened the screws further as Pakistan collapsed to their worst defeat against India in all World Cups. India won the match by 76 runs, and Virat Kohli was declared man of the match. India will take on South Africa in Pool-B match on Sunday, Feb 22 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).

Why Virat Kohli Vs Anderson is unfair contest

Virat Kohli Vs James Anderson, has been tipped as contest of the series by cricketing pundits all across the world. This has much to do with Virat Kohli's unlucky last tour where he average around 19 in 4 test match series.

So this time also experts believe that James Anderson will make mince meat of Virat Kohli, even though Kohli is ranked number 1 ICC test match player at the moment with proven record in Australia, South, Africa, New Zealand, Sri Lanka and everywhere else (except England before the start of the series).



It is some contest in eyes of  former Indian batsmen Sanjay Manjrekar. In fact one may argue the reason why Virat Kohli's poor tour is still fresh in cricket fans memory, despite kohli's stupendous run in test cricket since then, is because we have been constantly reminded by former India players and commentators of that horror tour. It'slike no matter how good Kohli has been, it is mandatory for critics of Indian cricket (indian themselves) to put a…

India have won the One Day International Series (ODI series) convincingly against South Africa. In 5th match of the momentum series India's opening batsmen made a scintillating hundred which included 4 humongous sixes.

Watch out for:the list of top ten six hitters of Indian team in this article.

One of the six hit by Rohit Sharma was of world's fastest bowler (at least as per biased commentators) which landed on the road out of stadium.



Rohit Sharma, who is the only player to have scored double centuries in limited overs cricket, charged kagiso rabada of South Africa and smashed the ball delivered by him out of park.

Rohit hit 3 more sixes and by doing so he became India's second highest 6 hitters in international game. He is only behind MS Dhoni. Given the form he is in, and struggling MS Dhoni, one can say Rohit is on the verge of becoming sixer king of Indian cricket.

Most people believe that Rohit has a natural ability to lift the ball and hit it outside the ground. He…
