Virat Kohli
loves playing against Australia. Kohli is the leading run scorer for India
against Australia in T20 internationals.

In the second T20I, it was Zampa again who bowled out the former India captain. Kohli managed to score just 11 runs in the match, which India ended up winning thanks to the performance of captain Rohit Sharma and the last-over power hitting by Dinesh Karthik.

In the first T20I match against Australia, Kohli was dismissed by Nathan Ellis. It was once again Adam Zampa who was brought on when the former Indian skipper came out to bat. Zampa created the pressure and as a result,
Kohli tried to loft a full-length ball over mid-on and ended up hitting it flat
to the fielder at mid-on. Chris Green took an easy catch.

Kohli has scored 720 runs against
Australia in 20 innings striking it at 144.57 and having an average of 55.38.
Kohli has played some historic T20I knocks over the years. He
produced one of the best performances in the T20 World Cup history in 2016 at the Mohali

for Australia in the middle overs. He is consistent with his lines and lengths.
