Powered by Firework The New Zealand tour has turned sour for Team India. Along with it, the captain Virat Kohli is struggling to find his usual finesse, and the lacklustre batting from the ODI series is has carried over into the Test. Although known for one of the present pioneer batsmen of Test cricket, Kohli failed to make a mark in the first Test, scoring only 21 across both innings of the first Test against New Zealand. As a result, the ICC no.1 Test batsman has lost his top spot, dropping to second position.Advertisement Image Courtesy: AFPThanks to marvellous performance in the South Africa and Bangladesh test series last year, Virat Kohli soared to the top spot in the batting ranking list last December, toppling Steve Smith with 928 ratings. Now, the Aussie superstar with 911 ratings has gone back to top of the ranking list, as Kohli’s ratings are down to 906.Australia’s last Test was against New Zealand, where Smith scored a marvellous 214 in the first test, including two half centuries. This is the eighth time Smith has regained his no. 1 rank in the last five years.Advertisement The Indian batting squad failed massively to rack up a good total against the Kiwis in the test, and Kohli himself, managed to put up a score of 2 and 19 in both innings respectively. With scoring totals of just 165 and 191, the hosts snatched away an easy 10 wicket victory in the second innings, chucking India into their heaviest Test defeat under the captaincy of Kohli at the Basin Reserve cricket ground in Wellington.Following Kohli, Cheteshwar Pujara has also lost two spots, and is down at 9th rank. The specialist Test batsman scored a total of 22 runs in the first Test.Advertisement However on the other hand, Mayank Agarwal has joined the top ten list, soaring up to no. 10 in the ranking, which is his career highest. The 29 year old put up an appreciable total of 92 across the two innings, along with a half century in the second one. With a rating of 727, Agarwal is one rank below Pujara.Ajinkya Rahane gone up to his previous rank at the no. 8 position.

Is this your definition of democracy? And from where do you bring so much money to buy MLAs? You have tried to buy our MLAs many times. Buying AAP leaders is not easy,” the Delhi Chief Minister said in a tweet. Vijay Goel had refuted AAP leader Manish Sisodia’s allegation of the BJP offering Rs. 10 crore to lawmakers to switch and said AAP lawmakers wanted to quit their party out of “frustration and humiliation”, so the BJP “did not need to buy them”. “The lawmakers want to leave AAP because the party has strayed from its objectives,” Mr Goel claimed.last_img read more
