Aussie selector takes a potshot at Kohli for latest 'brain fade'

The foreign newspapers, especially the Australian dailies had a field day after another dismal show by the Indians on the opening day of the Bengaluru Test.Sydney Morning Herald reported Aussie national selector Mark Waugh accusing Virat Kohli of having a “brain fade” after Australia made the Indian captain look foolish again in the second Test.Andrew Wu in his article wrote:In a damning indictment of the hapless Indians, Waugh said the hosts had mentally disintegrated on the first day after they folded like a deck of cards for the third time in as many innings.Kohli is yet to fire a shot after three innings – his manner of dismissals at odds with a player who insists he is not feeling the pressure.For the second time in a row, he lost his wicket shouldering arms, this time to off-spinner Nathan Lyon, who trapped him leg before wicket for 13 with a delivery he described as “nothing special”.Gideon Haigh in his column in The Australian wrote: Indians stuck in their own toilet.Peter Lalor for the same daily wrote on the pressure Aussie skipper Steve Smith has piled onto Kohli in his column while hailing Lyon’s entry into history books.The Daily Telegraph poked fun on India’s ‘dropped catches’ calling it, ‘Indian generosity hands Warner golden chance’.And it too didn’t spare India captain Kohli in the stats piece: The damning stat Kohli won’t want to see.Stay updated on the go with Sify Live Scores App. Click here to download it for your device
