England's Ole Robinson knocked out India's captain Virat Kohli at the end of the first day of second test, calling the precious wicket the greatest of his fledgling career.Fresh from his five-wicket haul in first opening test at Trent Bridge, Robinson cleared Kohli (42) who edged it to Joe Root on the first slip after taking the second fresh ball.Virat is probably mybiggest wicket so far, so I was happy with that. It was a great moment. The plan was always for him to bowl the fourth-fifth stump line, back of the length. Fortunately, the plan worked,said Robinson. After the stumps on Thursday.KL Rahul remained undefeated at 127wielding his bat from the first ball to the end, while his great opening partner Rohit Sharma played fluently before going out for 83, his best score in overseas test to lead India 276-3 on day one after Root opted to bowl. Robinson praised the efforts of opposing hitters for their efforts, but also felt his team was unlucky. "There were probably 10-15 hits and misses that he could count and another day we could have had it two or three earlier."  "We definitely looked at the circumstances and thought we could get some of them early here. I think on another day it (wickets) might have happened. "I felt we did a good performance," he said. "We worked hard against their batters and to be fair they played very well. Dense clouds in the morning delayed the start of the game, as Root was quick to choose a bowling game to take advantage of the conditions, which did not happen. When asked if the field was letting them down, he said: "We expected the field to be a little bit faster, a little bit smoother.’’ Obviously, it's a little bit slow. "The swing was a bit inconsistent; I don't know if it was the ball or the overhead. We decided to swing a bit, which we felt was a good plan, but the wicket was a bit slow on that and not as responsive as we think it might be. " Stuart Broad's absence (a torn calf) meant that Robinson shared the new ball with paceman James Anderson and said he was ready to take on the challenge. "It has been a privilege to share the new ball with Jimmy’’. I have shown in the last two games that I am ready to work when it arrives," he signed the exit.Also Read: Neeraj Chopra rises to second spot in world rankings after Olympic gold

Bolstered by the return of Captain Rohit Sharma, the Mumbai Indians (MI), still agonizing from their defeat against the Chennai Super Kings will look to return against the Varun Chakravarthy (KKR) inspired Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at Sheikh Zayed Abu Dhabi Stadium on Thursday night.The Tamil Nadu tweaker won handsome praise from India and RCB skipper Virat Kohli, who said he’s going to be “a key factor when he plays for India” after taking 3/13 in four overs. The 30-year-old’s magical spell included as many as 15 dot balls and Glenn Maxwell was one of his three scalps.When the teams met in Chennai during the first stage of the IPL, Rohit hit 43 off 32 balls and Chakravarthy took 1-27 in four overs, as MI won by 10 runs. Their 10-wicket victory over RCB allowed KKR to climb a little further to sixth spot on the table with six points from eight games.In order to keep their playoff hopes alive, they need to keep winning from here.Also Read- Virat Kohli to quit RCB captaincy after the end of IPL 2021 seasonMissing the services of their talismanic captain and India allrounder Hardik Pandya, MI went down by 20 runs to CSK on Sunday night. Both the players were rested as a precautionary measure, allowing them to recover from their niggles.While there’s still doubt over Pandya’s availability, head coach Mahela Jayawardene had said that Rohit should be returning for the KKR match.In a pre-match presser on Wednesday, MI’s left-arm pacer Trent Boult said: “They (Rohit and Hardik) are both recovering very well. In terms of their selection for the next game, I’m not too sure what’s going on there. But day by day, they are improving. It was probably more of precaution that they had that extra bit of rest the other night against Chennai. But they are obviously two vital players in the XI for Mumbai. And we’re desperate to get them back. So, fingers crossed that they’ll be pretty good to go over the next couple of games.”Lying at the fourth spot with eight games in eight matches, MI desperately need their key players for the business end of the tournament.View this post on InstagramA post shared by Mumbai Indians (@mumbaiindians)He (Rohit) was sorely missed. He is right up there in terms of experience and runs achieved in this format. So, it was a big hole but it was a good decision to make sure (that) he’s 100% with the amount of cricket coming up. If he comes to the eleven, it will be brilliant, but we want to make sure he is 100% fit,” said Boult.Whether Pandya plays on Thursday or not, he will also be seen by the Indian selectors, who chose him ahead of players like Shardul Thakur and Deepak Chahar for the T20 World Cup, which follows directly from the IPL in the United Arab Emirates.“If Hardik is fully fit, he can contribute with both bat and ball. He’s a very good player for any side. He’s working hard to get himself fit and we’re desperate to have him back,” said Boult.They would blame themselves for allowing CSK to get out of jail in the last game. Having reduced them to 24 for four in six overs, MI’s stand-in captain Kieron Pollard perhaps allowed their opponents to get off the hook when he chose to take off pacers Jasprit Bumrah and Boult and bring on his spinners.Also Read- Former Mr India contest winner Manoj Patil attempts suicide, blames actor Sahil Khan for harrassment

T20 World Cup warm-up: Rahul, Kishan power India to seven wicket win over England

India produced an energetic performance with the bat on Monday to beat England by 7-wickets in their first T20 World Cup warm-up match in Dubai. Chasing 189 for victory, the 2007 champions rode on destructive half-centuries from Ishan Kishan and KL Rahul to cross the finish line with 6 balls to spare. Kishan and Rahul opened the batting and added 82 for the first wicket to lay a solid foundation for the run chase before the latter got out against the run of play for 51 to Mark Wood. Virat Kohli, who dropped to No. 3 to accommodate Rahul at the top, suffered a rare failure with the bat, scoring just 11 off 13 balls. Kishan carried on attacking the England bowlers and top-scored with 70 not out of 46 balls with 7 fours and 3 sixes before being replaced by Suryakumar Yadav, but this move did not work because he couldn't fire as according to expectations and got out for 8 with India needing 21 off 15 balls. Fortunately, the duo of Rishabh Pant and Hardik Pandya did what was needed and knocked off the required runs without much trouble. Pant finished the match with six and finished with 29 not out while Pandya scored 12 not out.Impressive batting performance Fine bowling display #TeamIndia beat England & win their first warm-up game. #INDvENG #T20WorldCup : Getty Images pic.twitter.com/jIBgYFqOjz— BCCI (@BCCI) October 18, 2021Earlier, Mohammed Shami snapped three wickets but Jonny Bairstow smashed a 36-ball 49 to help England post a challenging 188 for 5 after being asked to bat first by Virat Kohli. Besides Shami (3/40), fellow pacer Jasprit Bumrah (1/26) and spinner Rahul Chahar (1/43) were also among wickets at the ICC Academy Ground in Dubai. Bairstow hit one six and had four hits to the fence in his knock, while Liam Livingstone (30) also contributed with the bat. But it was Moeen Ali's whirlwind 20-ball 43 which powered England to a good score in the end.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Tuesday announced a 16-member squad for the T20I series against New Zealand at home. Rohit Sharma has been named the captain of the T20I side while KL Rahul will be his deputy for the 3-match series, starting November 17. Virat Kohli, who stepped down as T20I captain after India's early exit from the T20 World Cup, has taken a break for the series and will be back for the Tests against New Zealand to be ready in time for the tour of South Africa later this year. Rohit Sharma will join hands with newly-appointed head coach Rahul Dravid, who will take over from the New Zealand Series. India is playing two tests after the T20I series but BCCI has yet to announce the Test team. India have not made complete changes to the squad in the T20I format despite their disappointing performance at the T20 World Cup in the UAE.Also Read- Virat Kohli T20I captaincy record: India Second most successful captain after DhoniWhile Hardik Pandya is not included in 16-man squad, the likes of Ravindra Jadeja and former captain Kohli have been rested.

rohit sharma to replace virat kohli

The inside story on why Rohit replaced Kohli as Indias white-ball captain

It was just a line at the end of the press release announcing the Test Team for the Tour of South Africa. On Wednesday, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry dismissed Virat Kohli from the leadership of the Indian ODI team and handed the full load of the white ball to Rohit Sharma. The test unlocks tool will now drive both sides of the T20I and ODI.A senior official in the Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry said that this decision had been in the works for some time, but the final decision was made by the selectors. BCCI wanted complete clarity between the red ball and the white cricket ball. The BCCI wanted a complete separation (of command) between the longer and shorter format to avoid confusion. In the end, the decision was left to the selector. They have decided to appoint Rohit as the new captain of ODI,” a BCCI source told the Indian Express.In contrast to the change of leadership of the T20I, where Kohli made the announcement citing his workload, the change of leadership of ODI is seen as a BCCI decision. Three months ago, after resigning as T20I captain, Kohli expressed his desire to lead India in Tests and ODIs in the future. “Understanding the workload is very important, considering the huge workload I have been in playing all three formats over the past 8-9 years and captaining regularly for the last 5-6 years, I feel I have to be a part of the Indian team. You need to be in a position to fully prepare to drive. ODI Cricket and Test Team,” he wrote on Instagram on September 16.However, after India's expected exit from the T20 World Cup, it became clear that BCCI was not on the same page as Kohli. They will make it official at the first opportunity they are given. Announcement of the Test Team in which Kohli was the Captain and Sharma the Vice Captain: “The All India Supreme Selection Committee has also decided to appoint Mr. Rohit Sharma as the captain of the ODI and T20I teams.”Indian Express has also learned that Kohli was not informed of the decision in advance. Again, this was a departure from the past. While stepping down as T20I captain, Kohli recalled his talks with former India coach Ravi Shastri, BCCI President Sourav Ganguly, and Board Secretary Jay Shah before making the decision. It was also his choice to leave leading the Royal Challengers Bangalore team in the Indian Premier League.The first indications of Kohli's volatile stance on the bench came when BCCI hired MS Dhoni as the team's mentor at the October-November T20 World Cup. Kohli's inability to win the ICC events was a concern of the Indian Board of Directors. Insiders say it was India's performance in the T20 World Cup that decided Kohli's future. However, in a move that surprised even BCCI officials, Kohli announced his decision to quit driving T20I even before the tournament started. His desire to continue as a test and ODI captain worried the stewards. With India hosting the 2023 World Cup for 50 years, Kohli did not want to let go of the ODI captain. In a way, it was Kohli who was abusing the Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Remove me from the ODI Team Leader position, if you wish. BCCI did the same on Wednesday.Going back in timeThe captain's decisions in Indian cricket are never left to the players. Kapil Dev was fired a year after his 1983 World Cup win. Sunil Gavaskar resigned after winning the 1985 World Cricket Championship. Sourav Ganguly was revoked under bitter circumstances. Even Dhoni, who had three world titles in his bag, was hit in the shoulder by the selection committee at the time when it felt the need to change the white ball captain. Kohli probably couldn't read the room.In another interesting development, the selectors have promoted Sharma to auditioning for Vice Captain instead of Ajinkya Rahane, despite the latter being selected for the three-game series in South Africa. Sharma's growing standing on the team could give way to reading between the lines, which has begun to phase out Kohli's style.Kohli has been one of the most successful white ball captains in India. In the 95 ODI, he won 65, giving him a win percentage of over 70. In the 45 T20I, he led India to win 27 times. Sharma has always been Kohli's assistant in limited cricket, captaining the team in 10 ODI and 19 T20I before being given the full-time job during the last three-match streak against New Zealand. I started with a clean sweep. Five IPL titles led by the Mumbai Indians made him the successor to Kohli.Read more latest news to visit now - PITCHHIGH
