Virat Kohli, the skipper of the Indian cricket team, is undoubtedly one of the best cricketers of the present times and one reason for his success is that he loves what he does. Many times we have witnessed Virat Kohli acting in an energetic manner on the field and he knows how to increase the excitement of the crowd.
Usually, not many people come to watch test cricket match but as it was Sunday yesterday and the local boy Ravichandran Ashwin is also a part of the squad and bowled pretty well, the public came in good numbers in Chepauk stadium. During the match, Virat Kohli got involved with the crowd as he asked them to “Whistle Podu”. Soon the crowd responded and when Kohli asked them to increase the volume and signaled that he is not able to listen, the crowd raised their voices and created an amazing atmosphere.

As far as the match is concerned, India is in a very strong position as England has already lost their 3 wickets for 53 runs and they still have to score 429 runs to win and game for two days is still remaining.
While the former England cricketers are complaining about the pitch, the Indian batsmen are showing them how to bat on this pitch. While Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane and Rishabh Pant batted well in the first innings, Virat Kohli and Ravichandran Ashwin batted brilliantly in the second innings. R Ashwin scored a century in the second innings and he also took 5 wickets in England’s first innings. What’s more, a lot is being expected from him in the second innings of England as the pitch is very supportive towards the spinners.
The England team is already leading in the four match test series by 1-0 and if India wins this match, the series will be leveled.
