Ind Vs Eng: Kohli became the third captain to lead team India in 200 matches
Virat Kohli: Team India captain Virat Kohli scored his unique double century against England yesterday. He has captained the Indian team in 200 international matches. He has become the third captain to do so. After Dhoni left the captaincy in January 2017, Virat took over the captaincy of Team India.
Virat Kohli has now joined the list of former captains Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Mohammad Azharuddin. Before Virat, Dhoni has captained India in 332 matches and Azharuddin in 221 matches. Now Kohli has the responsibility of Team India in all three formats, ODI, Test and T20.
After the match, Virat Kohli got angry with Bhubaneswar-Shardul
In the third ODI played in Pune, India defeated England by 7 runs. With this, Team India pocketed the ODI series 2-1. After the match, India captain Virat Kohli looked angry. Virat Kohli lamented that Bhuvneshwar Kumar did not get the Man of the Series award and Shardul Thakur did not get the Man of the Match award.
In yesterday’s final, Sam Curran was named Man of the Match. He led England to victory with 95 runs. England opener Johnny Bairstow, who scored 94 in the first match and 124 in the second, was named man of the series. Virat expressed his displeasure about this. Virat said, “I don’t understand why Bhuvi didn’t get the Man of the Series award. Taking six wickets with very few runs on such pitches is like Man of the Series. Shardul scored 30 runs and took four wickets but he is still the Man of the Match. It’s not clear. It’s completely beyond comprehension. “
