Virat Kohli's challenge to dominant cricket blueprint - weak middle-order

Harbhajan Singh, Sachin Tendulkar are Steve Smith's favourite Indian cricketers

He only became the third Indian bowler to complete a hat-trick after Chetan Sharma and Kapil Dev.

Virat took to Twitter and wrote, "Great effort by the bowling unit last night!"

The Aussies didn't seem to look too kindly on Kohli running while an opponent was seemingly injured, with Stoinis questioning the Indian skipper at the end of the over. "I love every format of the game". He also got the important wicket of David Warner to rock the Aussies early.

"Don't get into a verbal battle or staring competition with Kohli", he warned Steve Smith's team. However, the left-hander flicked a full toss straight to mid-wicket to become Chahal's first scalp and Australia found themselves under pressure again. Came off today, so it looked nice.

Australia skipper Steve Smith and Travis Head calmed things down with a 76-run partnership before Head was sent packing by Yuzvendra Chahal for 39.

His best ball without a doubt was the hat-trick ball.

Nevertheless, just before the start of this ODI and T20 series, former Australian fast bowler Jason Gillespie urged the touring Australians not to rile up or needle Kohli.

Chasing India's total of 252 all out, the touring side appeared comfortably placed at 138-4 before they suffered a collapse and were bundled out for 202 in the 44th over. He has always given the belief that he can pick up wickets, and has backed it with the numbers.

Studio says safety on 'Riverdale' set of 'paramount importance' following crash
This is after a day of shooting long-16 hours, KJ Apa , who was to perform a 45-minute ride back to his hotel, had his accident. TV says the security of the cast and group of its Vancouver-based " Riverdale " set is of "foremost significance".

The time Kohli and Rahane were at the crease India were on course for a big score but the latter's dismissal in the 24th over opened the gates for Australia.

Coulter-Nile and Kane Richardson picked up three wickets apiece, while Pat Cummins and Ashton Agar chipped in with one wicket each. In the four matches that they have played together for India - 3 ODIs and 1 T20I - they have taken a combined tally of 17 wickets. Three times in those six innings he got out driving the full and wide ball early in his innings.

However, Coulter-Nile's twin strikes (Jadhav and Kohli) in successive overs titled the balance in favour of Australia as thereafter India just seemed to have lost the plot.

While one can not rule out the return of Ashwin and Jadeja to white ball cricket for India, Yadav and Chahal have made their cases stronger and have shown ample qualities that they are at the moment the first-choice spinners.

There was also an injury scare for Pandya, who was hit hard on the grill of his helmet by a shot from Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

The duo played fluently as India reached the 100-run mark in 19.5 overs.

However, Rahane was unable to make the most of his fifty as he was run out by Hilton Cartwright for 55, which came off 64 balls and included seven boundaries. Cricket is in a pretty good space and continues to grow.
