Australia’s left-arm fast bowler Mitchell Starc was at the top of India’s order in the first ODI played at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Friday. Starc returned figures of 3/49, dismissing Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav in consecutive balls. Former Pakistan spinner Danish Kaneria highlighted Kohli’s dismissal off Starc and raised warning bells for the star batsman. Kaneria suggested that Kohli’s struggles against left-arm fast bowlers could bother him in the final of the World Test Championship (WTC), where India play Australia in June.
“When the ball comes back in, Virat Kohli is not comfortable against left-arm fast bowlers. He will have to practice to face Mitchell Starc in the World Test Championship final. The team management needs to play with left-arm fast bowlers like T Natarajan. should be brought in the form of a net.” bowler,” Kaneria said in a video on his YouTube channel.
India won the first ODI by 5 wickets after KL Rahul scored an unbeaten 75 while chasing 189. 39.5 overs.
Sharing his thoughts on Rahul, Kaneria quipped: “KL Rahul has suffered a major setback. He was dropped from the Test team and he knows he has to perform now and be very understanding. Getting out is never the solution. You need to fix the problems. He looked very calm today and the Aussie bowlers weren’t hitting him on the pads as he was going behind the line of the ball.”
The second ODI between India and Australia will be played in Visakhapatnam on Sunday.
