That test series is low scoring test match for Virat. In the first two test, Virat’s overall score is 43, and his score breakdown is 11,0,23,9, so team management going to take a decision to drop him for next two test matches. But there is one who stuck with Kohli and he is none other than Indian skipper and captain of Indian cricket Mr Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

As selector wanted to play Rohit but Indian captain MS Dhoni and at that time vice-captain, Virendra Sehwag  both decided to give a chance to the Indian youngest player Virat Kohli.

This decision of both captains is very fruitful as Virat scores 44 and 75 in the Perth test and 116 in last test match at Adelaide. Virat was the only player who made a century, but unfortunately, India had lost all four test matches.

This decision still remains very fruitful as Indians cricket fans always remain positive when Virat is batting on  22- yard pitch and after that two test matches against Australia Virat is still ruling the cricket ground. Hats off to MS Dhoni for his great fruitful decision.
