Minor blip or something to worry for Virat Kohli?

Feb 25, 2020 13:21 IST

Was the crushing in Wellington a one-off defeat or is it something to bother for Team India and their think tank as they prepare for the 2nd Test vs New Zealand. While Captain Virat Kohli played down the chatter after the Test match, the reality is that this was the first loss for his side in Tests in the ongoing World Championship. A loss is a loss but a 10-wicket defeat was nothing short of a gut punch. Despite the loss, India still sits on top of the points table but can't afford to slip further. While Kohli himself struggles on the pitch as he hasn't scored a hundred in the last 20 innings, the core performers of Team India like Cheteshwar Pujara, Mohd Shami and Jasprit Bumrah too failed to make a dent in Wellington. The 2nd Test vs New Zealand starts on Saturday and the fans will be hoping for a complete turnaround by Team India.
