Virat Kohli:

In this match, Indian captain Virat Kohli found it very expensive to change the batting order. Batting at number three, Virat considered it appropriate to bat at number four in this match. This is because, in this match, both Rahul and Dhawan were included in the playing eleven. Virat fell to Adam Zampa by scoring only 16 runs in this match. Zampa targeted Virat for the fourth time.
