India V/S Australia 2nd ODI: – Vijay Shankar Changes Match-Winning Point with Two Wickets

Vijay Shankar ended the challenge of the number 11 Adam Zampa by taking a wicket with bold on the Yorker. India won the match by 8 runs to take a 2-0 lead in the series. As it happened, it was also India’s 500th ODI match win. What a game played by Kohli and Vijay.

Fate then turned backward. Another reason is that there should be a better balance between the bat and the ball.

11 runs were needed in the last over, but besides Vijay Shankar, India did not have any choice. And he dismissed Marcus Stoinis on the first ball and astonished the Indian team and convinced that we could win the match. Marcus Stoinis was trapped leg before. The match was again in favor of India.

India batted first and was all out on 250 runs which was1a1 powered by captain Virat Kohli’s 40th ODI century and a cameo of Vijay Shankar. With the dismissal being all out for 242 in the last over of the match, Australia’s 11 runs chase became the nail-biter, in which Shankar bowled the last over and took two wickets.

Mohammed Shami’s glorious cover drive proved to be a sign of things coming in the third over and certainly was enough, Finch started coming in a flow towards the second half of the first 10 overs. His opening partner Usman Khawaja also kept pace and this pair started 83 runs within 15 overs.

Finch was the first man to be trapped in the leg-before-wicket of Kuldeep Yadav in the 15th over. Usman Khawaja was dismissed by Kedar Jadhav in the next over and India again captured the match.

Shaun Marsh, who was playing his first match of the series after spell due to injury. Marsh did not last long, although he played well with 16 runs on 27 balls. After that, Glenn Maxwell’s wicket felt on Kuldeep’s ball.

By then India had control but then Australia fought with the partnership of Alex Carey and Marcus Stoinis.  But Carey was dismissed by Kuldeep in the 44th over and after this Jaspreet Bumrah played the deadly overs. To increase the excitement, he took wickets of Nathan Coulter-Nile and Pat Cummins by leaving Stoinis.

Needed 11 runs in the last over and Stoinis on the strike, Kohli gave the ball to Vijay Shankar to finish the game. This decision paid the dividend because Shankar grabbed the wicket of Stoinis on the first ball of the over. After this, he bowled Adam Zampa and ended the match.

Kohli’s 40th ODI century brought India to competitive 250 after the middle-order collapse on a dry surface at the VCA Stadium, but it proved to be sufficiently successful because India won the remaining three balls only. This was India’s 500th victory in the ODI format.

The first victory came against East Africa in 1975 under the leadership of then captain S Venkataraghavan. India now ahead in the five-match series 2-0.

Dhoni Kohli Rohit

M.S.Dhoni vs Virat Kohli vs Rohit Sharma : Dinesh Karthik explains the captaincy style of all

“Nothing in this world is bigger than experience.” This line is applied to Indian Cricket Team also. Team India is very lucky to have 3 most successful captains who are in the playing squad for World Cup and other limited over formats.

The wicket-keeper batsman Dinesh Karthik explains the captaincy style of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. He has played under the captaincy of all these 3 legends. As per him, these 3 jewels of India have different perceptions, different ways of leadership, different ways of handling the situation. While MSD has been the most experienced captain of Indian Team, Virat Kohli is getting experienced day by day in all the three formats, Rohit Sharma whenever gets chance proves his leadership also.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni is cool, sensitive, instictive leader. As a leader he has proved everything. Under his captaincy various big Indian players like Virendra Sehwag, Sachin Tendulkar, Yuvraj Singh, Harbhajan Singh etc have played. The ways of taking decisions by Dhoni on the ground is very provoking. He is a very practical being. As per the situation he turns his decisions. Dhoni always motivates, inspires and guides other players on and off the ground. Karthik further adds that he has learnt various techniques of wicket-keeping from Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

On the other hands, the present skipper Virat Kohli is a bit aggressive. He is self confident. The performance of team India under his leadership is quite well. Kohli has led India to win various trophies in all the three formats. He keeps on learning the captancy from Dhoni on the ground. He is a quick learner and very active captain on the grounds. He meets with bowlers in between and guides them properly.

Rohit Sharma has been magnificent as a captain. He is also the captain of Mumbai Indians. Under his leadership Mumbai has won several titles. Rohit Sharma gets inspiration from Mahendra Singh Dhoni as he calls him his guru. He talks to players and bowlers often and takes punctual decisions. As a captain Rohit Sharma plays his natural innings.

All the three captains are true leaders. All of them have different ways of captaincy but their vision is same. These three leaders will have great responsibility in the World Cup 2019. All of them have enough experience and they have won big titles. It will be great for the new players to learn from these trio captains. Dhoni-Kohli-Rohit counts to half of Team India.

Dinesh Karthik feels very enthusiastic to play for Team India under the captaincy of D-K-R. Hope India will do the best in coming times by using the experience of these trio.
