Ind vs Aus 2020: Virat Kohli’s dream run ends after he was run out at Adelaide

Ind vs Aus 2020: Virat Kohli’s love affair with showing dominance in Australia has now been a better love story than most of the romantic hits of Hollywood. Today on the day when the other Indian batters failed again, it was the Indian captain who put a resolute fight to garner 74 runs from 180 deliveries that saw him hammering 8 boundaries.

India was in hot waters right since the outset when they lost Prithvi Shaw in the very second ball of the first over. Mayank Agarwal followed suit in no time leaving a mountain to climb for Pujara and Kohli.

Despite stabilizing the ship to a certain extent, Cheteshwar Pujara fell to the wily spin of Nathan Lyon, leaving India contorting in agony at 100 for 3. Kohli continued with his resistance alongside Ajinkya Rahane.

Rahane batted for a good deal and posted a solid 42 before Kohli was run out by Josh Hazlewood. This run-out put an end to the fine run by Kohli until now that quoted not being dismissed by being run-out for 90 innings.

The ones who are next in the line with this wondrous record of not being run-out for the highest number of innings as a captain, Michael Clarke is the closest contender with 86 innings.

The man who followed the Australian was former English opener, Andrew Strauss who played without being run-out for 85 innings. Next in line was former English captain, Naseer Hussain who could achieve this feat for 77 innings.


Viv Richards and MAK Pataudi are the next in line with very close figures that read 74 and 73 innings respectively. Two legends of the game always loved to fight on the same front.

Kohli has established himself as one of the finest batters to be ever produced by India and he continues to rule the roost with a few incredible innings. His prowess in Australia is an enviable one and his place at the perch is still unshaken. That is what makes him so special in this Indian side.
