Kohli fails in front of Dravid
Dravid may be supporting Rajasthan but he would not have liked what happened on the first ball of this match. Virat Kohli got LBW off Trent Boult on the first ball of this match. Kohli played a brilliant inning in the last match but in this match he could not even open the account.
Dravid’s focus is currently on the final of the World Test Championship which will be played after the IPL. Dravid is paying attention to its preparations. India had to face defeat in the final of the World Test Championship at the hands of New Zealand last time.
