How badly is Virat Kohli struggling?

How badly is Virat Kohli struggling?

Star Sports analyst Laxman, who scored 8,781 runs in a decorated Test career, condemned the visitors for "mocking" India skipper Virat Kohli's shoulder injury on day three of the third Test. A tough delivery, yes, but Kohli's dismissal was more due to his limited feet movement than the hurt right shoulder, for he'd driven on the up against Josh Hazlewood without any apparent discomfort.

Glenn Maxwell celebrates making his maiden test ton, at Ranchi.

The pair are feuding after Smith admitted he had broke the rules of the decision review system by consulting the dressing room during the second Test.

The pair were constantly at it.

The Jharkhand State Cricket Association International Stadium Complex track looked ideal for batting as Indian camp looked dispirited in absence of skipper Virat Kohli who remained away from the field, recovering from a shoulder strain. Former India batsman VVS Laxman was on commentary at that point and openly criticized Kohli for that final act.

But he has been largely overlooked as an off-spinner, despite the pitch providing plenty of assistance to the tweakers.

Pujara's second 150-plus knock takes India to 435/6 at lunch
He drove and flicked Ashwin for three boundaries in an over. "But the hardness of the ball in the middle session was a factor". Handscomb looked solid in his unbeaten 44 from 115 balls (3x4), while Marsh was equally resolute in his 127-ball 38.

"There's going to be a second innings, so hopefully if they can take it that way, it'll be great", he remarked.

Australia coach Darren Lehmann did not disagree with the bowling choices of Smith, saying after the close of play on day four that it was the captain's call. As far I'm concerned it's being played in the right spirit on the field and it's a hard and tough grind.

"We did speak about it, chopping and changing it a little bit". I was probably the exact opposite. "That's a call the captain makes out there and I'm happy with that".

"That chase (put) Virat Kohli on strike, we got the wicket very next ball so little things like that are really important for us". You feel happy for him because he is such a wonderful guy. Needing early wickets to take a stranglehold, Australia had seemingly gained a vital breakthrough and a way into India's shaky lower order.

"They (four-five of them) started taking Patrick's name".

"Australia missed a trick yesterday". Essentially, he bowled his frontline bowlers to exhaustion and, in the bigger picture, it will be an almighty effort for the foursome to pick themselves up for the series finale in what is a short turnaround between Tests.
