Indian skipper is very active on the social media platform. He used to share his feelings with fans. Kohli also revealed that when he gets excited?

Virat Kohli's young guns are fully confident and all they are set to demolish England in their home ground. A lot of things depend on the toss because it is the slow surface. Men's in blue are well enough smart to chase the target.  

It was Kuldeep's 5 wicket haul and Rahul's blistering ton that threw England's batting line-up in the first T20 match.

Virat Kohli took to Twitter and wrote - "The most exciting feeling is walking out with your teammates to represent your country. The passion of fans creates a kind of energy that can't be explained."


Now Virat Kohli's led Indian cricket team would look to ensure that a spin-wary Englishmen remains on the back-foot when they face in the 2nd T20 international match at Sophia Gardens at Cardiff.

If India leads the series by 2-0 margin then it will allow India to close the gap with second-placed Australia. On the other side, a 3-0 whitewash will help them leapfrog to the second position behind top-ranked Pakistan.

Spotlight Players:

Bhuvneshwar Kumar, the sultan of swing and he is India's leading bowler. He is also struggling with the bowl. First two match in limited over format wicketless. However, should Indian skipper persist with Bhuvneshwar Kumar, the onus is on him to deliver.

Moeen Ali had a superb show against Australia. He scalped 12 wickets in 5 ODI games. He is out of flavour in limited over format. Ali didn't look good with the bad too.
