The second match of the 4-match Test series between India and Australia is being played at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi. Former Indian captain Virat Kohli is the birthplace of Delhi. The Delhi Test match is special for him. However, 2 days of the 5-day match have been played and Australia are playing their second innings on the third day. This match will end in next 2 days. Australia are 61 for the loss of one wicket in their second innings after 12 overs. Also, they have a lead of 62 runs.
This may be the last Test match of former captain Virat Kohli. Because, if we look at the BCCI rotation policy, a Test match is being played at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi after 6 years. So if this happens again, a Test match will be played at this ground in 2029. By then, Virat will be 40 years old.
Virat Kohli’s Stats at Arun Jaitley Stadium
Indian batsman Virat is currently 34 years old. He has so far scored 511 runs at an average of 73 in 7 innings from 4 Test matches in Delhi. He has scored 2 fifties during this run. His best score in this is 243. Interestingly, this is also his highest score by an Indian player.
Virat hasn’t lost a single Test here so far. He has won 2 matches while one Test match has been drawn. In this case, he will have to maintain his winning record. However, the third day of this Test against Australia is going to be very important.
A massive breakthrough for Australia!
