Looks like India losing the first T20I against Australia by four runs in Brisbane is changing a few opinions about Virat Kohli’s captaincy. According to many cricketing experts, the three changes made in the squad ahead of the first T20I costed India dearly. Now just after the game, during an interview with a news channel, Pakistan’s legendary batsman Shahid Afridi said that Virat Kohli is a good player but needs to improve as a captain. KL Rahul Slammed by Netizens for His Poor Performance During Ind vs Aus 1st T20I.

“Virat Kohli is one of my favourite players but he needs to improve as a captain."He further went on to say that the Indian team will have to play as a unit to win in Australia, "India-Australia series is going to be a very exciting contest and this Indian team has what it takes to beat Australia in Australia but the team needs to play together,” he further went on to explain. Harbhajan Singh Slams Indian Team Management on Picking Krunal Pandya Over Yuzvendra Chahal in the 1st T20I Against Australia.

Virat Kohli introduced three changes in the team which backfired badly. He went on to promote KL Rahul on number three and came to bat on number four. Instead of performing well, KL Rahul made way to the pavilion after scoring 13 runs from 12 balls. Krunal Pandya who was brought in place of Yuzvendra Chahal bowled the worst deliveries and went on to give away 55 runs to the opponents. Despite having a great record against Chris Lynn, Jasprit Bumrah did not bowl to the Aussie batsman. India will play the next T20I tomorrow in Melbourne.
