Virat Kohli picks the slower one to launch an authoritative pull

Indian opener KL Rahul was dismissed early with Daniel Sams tucking him up with the short ball into the ribs. Rohit Sharma struck a six and two fours before getting cramped for room in identical fashion. He tried to pull a short ball from Pat Cummins in the fourth over but found the man on the fence. But Virat Kohli batted fluently, bringing out the confident drives while also waiting on the slower ball to launch an authoritative pull off Josh Hazlewood for a six. India reached 50 in the first six overs, 16 fewer what Australia managed. His 104-run stand with Suryakumar Yadav brought the chase right back on track.
