Kohli out by scoring 11 runs in first innings of Chennai Test
Virat Kohli took paternity leave after the Test match in Adelaide against Australia. After this, he did not play the remaining three Tests of the series against Australia. The comeback fight for Kohli has not been very memorable. England scored a mammoth score of 578 in their first innings with the help of Joe Root’s double century. The Indian team was reduced to 337 runs in its reply. Kohli contributed just 11 runs in it. For the British newspaper Daily Mail, Hussain wrote that Joe Root is a better captain than Kohli.
He wrote, ‘Overall, the route has been fantastic. The Indian captain is seen in a dilemma. They have had trouble making decisions. The reason for this is that he is often left behind in the game and does not handle the circumstances according to himself. And as he and Root know that your decisions are judged on the basis of results. ‘

On this Nasir Hussain said, ‘Ajinkya Rahane has done very well in Australia, after this Kohli is probably trying to be less aggressive than before. Perhaps it is on his mind to smile more and allow the team players to express their feelings openly. However, Kohli’s old style was seen when Rory Burns was out on the first ball of England’s second innings. Kohli was openly expressing his feelings. I think this is his strength as a captain – his passion, his passion and his aggression. ‘
