India will take on Australia in the third and final ODI of the three-match series at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Wednesday March 22. Former Indian cricketer Wasim Jaffer expressed disappointment at the departure of star batsman Virat Kohli while he was playing shortly after scoring. 35 to 40 runs. Jaffer said Virat Kohli used to turn his starts into big scores, but that’s not happening now.
Former Indian captain Virat Kohli was sent off for 31 runs off 35 balls from Nathan Ellis. The 34-year-old got caught in front of the stumps as he played a quick shot. India participated in 117 races at Visakhapatnam. The visitors chased down the target in 11 overs, with Travis Head and Mitchell scoring a half-century. The hosts suffered the biggest turnover in terms of balls in the 50+ format.

It was a massive wicket while looking on pace – Wasim Jaffer
Speaking on ESPN Cricinfo’s Timeout, Wasim Jaffer said Virat Kohli’s wicket was a massive moment in a game where he looked to be in good contact from the start despite wickets falling from the other end. The former India opener feels that Virat should turn his starts into big scores like he used to do in the past.
“It was a massive wicket as I watched on pace. It seemed that he would form a great partnership with Axar Patel and Ravindra Jadeja. He may not have played much against Nathan Ellis and was beaten after crossing over. He looked in good shape”, Wasim Jaffer said.

“I’m a little surprised that old Kohli wouldn’t be fired after making 30-35 runs, but is happening frequently. When in the crease he makes 35-40 runs and plays a poor shot to get out. So Kohli has to change that. Yo I thought we might see one more big score at your favorite place. and unfortunately, It couldn’t happen.” added.
The team led by Rohit Sharma started the series on a high note. However, the visitors made an impressive comeback by recording the biggest win in the second ODI. Both teams are hoping to seal the series by winning the must-play matchup in Chennai.
