India won their first pre-ICC T20 World Cup warm-up game on Monday, defeating Australia by six runs. KL Rahul and Suryakumar Yadav were doing well, but Virat Kohli, the team's batting talisman, was out after making 19 runs.
The former India captain made a significant contribution on the field even if not with the bat. The 33-year-old made an incredible one-handed catch and ran out.
Australia has been one of Virat's favourite opponents, and Kohli has had excellent success playing against the baggy greens. With 794 runs in 22 innings versus Australia in T20Is, Kohli is notable as the game's top run-scorer.
Virat Kohli's record against Australia was brought up during the pre-match broadcast against Australia, and the match presenter also questioned Gautam Gambhir on Virat Kohli's mentality going into the tournament.
Kohli received a strong warning from Gambhir, who advised the 33-year-old to focus on scoring runs for the team rather than setting personal records.
Here is how the two's interaction unfolded.
Presenter: Gautam Gambhir, who contributed significantly to the 2007 T20 World Cup final and has the most runs versus Australia in T20 Internationals, is the best person to advise us on how Virat Kohli should approach the competition.
