How England might counter India's skipper and genius Kohli

Katie RamirezЯнв 19, 2017

In yesterday s match when India had their historic win against English while chasing an enormous target of 351 runs, MS Dhoni almost forgot that he is not the Indian captain anymore.Such was his dominance that even Virat Kohli could manage only eight runs off the 12 Rashid deliveries he faced.India captain Virat Kohli: "This one is going to take a while to sink in, conceding 350 runs and being 63-4".Just as Alastair Cook had watched the Tests slip away from his grasp, one-day captain Eoin Morgan could do little to stop a certain victory turn to an inglorious defeat.

Middle order Indian batsman Kedar Jadhav, along with skipper Virat Kohli, rattled up a sensational partnership for the fifth wicket to set up the platform for India after England set the hosts a stiff 351-run target in the first ODI at the Maharashtra Cricket Association ( MCA) Stadium on Sunday.

Buttler, who was also a part of the England team that lost the five-match Test series 0-4 before this ODI series, said that his side were looking forward to win the do-or-die second match here tomorrow. Everybody was wondering that why Yuvraj, aged 35 and Nehra, aged 37 were included in the team as there were many other options in hand. "It's good to have both of them in the team". We can't focus on just one and forget about others.

Sometimes it is good to know exactly what you are chasing. Saurav Ganguly asserted that the inning played by Kedar Jadhav was extraordinary and was better than the 122 run stretch by Virat Kohli. Virat Kohli is planning well and is doing everything possible to ensure team India wins. "It's a real motivation to stand up and take responsibility and I want to do it more and more". In an interview to, Kohli spoke about Jadhav's "calculative innings" and credited him for playing some mind boggling shots. We could hit sixes to put pressure on the opposition.

"We have to figure out the best combination in the team". Getting to 350 should give us confidence. You can use the shorter ball a little bit more. Later, against Kolkata Knight Riders, his 41 off 22 balls turned the match around and it established Buttler as a potent finisher in the shortest format. "Guys do go on and make telling contributions, 350 plus is achievable for us as a side", he said. Talking about English batsmen, Rahul said they all are hard-hitting ones, but Jos Buttler could play all around the wicket.

Umesh Yadav was expensive in the first match and the Indian think-tank may look at Bhuvneshwar Kumar as a possible replacement.

"Vice-captain is a role I've enjoyed a under Eoin and it's fantastic to have him back", he said.

There is even talk that after a relatively lean 2016, which ended with him missing the tour of Bangladesh with safety concerns, his place could come under threat from Sam Billings and Jonny Bairstow.
