As a debutant Test captain, Virat Kohli has led the team from the front face. His brilliant batting skill supported his leadership qualities to join Greg Chappell, from Adelaide’s affluent southern Unley suburb, as the only other player who scored hundreds in each innings of his debut Test as skipper.

If Clarke had declared two times in the Test to show he only plays for victory in the true Australian gravel, Kohli was no less adventurous in accepting the adventure instead of embracing a ‘safety-first’ policy by going for a draw on in the fifth day field on which the verge of mistake was quiet minimum. It did not show all that perfidious when Virat Kohli and Murali Vijay batted with exception technique.

Indian cricket specialists after the fourth day’s play all eminent former Test cricketers kept considering the anticipation of India playing to draw the series.

If the Test match had become so interesting much of the credit must show their face to Michael Clarke who gave the Indians an equivalent chance to take the match. Michael Clarke is famous for taking high risks to win and now Virat Kohli has shown a quite same ability. Sadly Michael was not there to taste the success on the pitch. It is quite definite he is out of the current series.

Virat Kohli batted very well and inspired Murali to first gain hopes of a draw by batting out the after lunch session and a feasible victory.

Virat Kohli said he was proud of his teammates and the way they fought back in the match. But he must be very downcast with the effort of his boys, especially the batsmen.

It was tough to arrange Nathan Lyon, and his 12-wicket tug in the Test match which was an astonishing performance of off-spin bowling. The point of focus is that, the entire Indian attack could only dismiss twelve batsmen seven in the first innings and five in the second
