Below is my pick from the early performance points picks in the Australia-India Series happening down under.
England v India
V Kohli Over 89 performance points @ 1.83 (Bet365) – 3 points
This is a test match between India and Australia in the 2nd test of the Series from Brisbane from 17-21 December 2014.
Virat Kohli comes into the 2nd match of the series on the back of a fabulous performance scoring a century in each innings of the test match and in doing so, became the 1st captain to do that in the history of the game. In the 1st match of the series I back Kohli owing to his imperious form coming into this series, and he absolutely repaid the faith by delivering it by taking a catch and scoring 75 points to wrap the bet inside 3 days.
Coming into this match he will have more focus as a batsman as Dhoni will be back to lead this side. His aggressive approach of going for the wins, building the lead and making the Aussie fast bowlers struggle, even caused the Aussies to change 2 of their pace bowlers for this match. Kohli’s last few innings read as follows: 141, 115, 66, 60, 139, 66, 53, 49, 22, 127, 62. While all of them have not come in the longer format of the game, it just goes to show you the form that the guy is in, and he continues is run of having a catch every match; which is worth 10 points.
Expect Kohli to deliver the goods for us once again.
