Pune, Jan 16:
Indian captain Virat Kohli has heaped praise on his young team-mate Kedar Jadhav for his “outstanding” knock of 76-ball 120 in the first ODI against England, describing it as one of the best calculative innings he had seen.
Kohli (122 off 105 balls) and Jadhav, whose 120 was his career-best, smashed superlative hundreds to help India chase down the stiff target of 351 for a three-wicket win in the first of the three-match ODI series here last night.
“One word for it is outstanding. He (Jadhav) put a lot of pressure into the spinners. It was one of the best calculative innings I have seen, 150 strike rate was outstanding. Some of the shots he played, he told it was instinctive. I could not believe,” Kohli said at the post-match press conference.(PTI)
