During India’s entertaining win over Australia in Nagpur, Virat Kohli and Axar Patel combined perfectly to influence the run of the in-form Cameron Green during Friday’s second T20I in Nagpur.
The incident happened during the second over of the game when Green, who scored a fifty in the previous game, was caught short of his bottom chasing non-striker end. His shot down the middle to an alert Kohli saw a quick return to the stumps in front of Patel. Real-time view suggested Kohli could have scored a direct hit for reps only, only to later reveal it was Patel who removed the stumps on catching the ball.
Australia eventually scored 90/5 in a rain-shortened match that allowed just eight overs a side. The hosts chased the target down four balls to record a six-wicket win.
The team’s captain, Rohit Sharma, was the star of the win with 46*, while Dinesh Karthik (10 runs, 2-ball) put India over the line with a six and a four in the last over. For Australia, Mathew Wade hit a 20-ball 43 after Aaron Finch’s 15-ball 31 at the lead.
Axar Patel was among the Indian bowlers with 2/13 (2 overs), while Adam Zampa (3/16 in 2 overs) starred among the Australians.
