India were bowled out for 262 in their first innings of the second Test against Australia in Delhi. Virat Kohli was looking in good touch before a debatable decision ended his decision.
Nitin Menon gave him LBW, but Kohli took DRS as there was a lot of confusion with the umpire’s verdict. However, the third umpire ruled in favor of the bowling team, and Virat had to depart.
The hosts were in deep trouble, but a fifty from Axar Patel and important contributions from Ravindra Jadeja and R Ashwin took India to 262 runs, with the visitors taking a 1-run lead.
Kohli now has India’s second-highest Test average in a game where the score was below 300.
He has scored his runs at an average of 29.9, with Sachin Tendulkar leading the table.
