New Delhi. Virat Kohli has not been able to do anything amazing so far in the ongoing Test series against Australia. His bat is calm. Even in the fourth Test, preparations have started to keep Kohli silent. Todd Murphy, who made his debut in the first Test of this series, has so far hunted Kohli 3 times. Before the Ahmedabad Test, Murphy told about the plan against Kohli. He said that while bowling round the wicket, the effort is to put the ball on the edge of the bat.
Murphy said the plan has been successful so far and it would be great to get Kohli out again. Murphy has taken 11 wickets in the first 3 Tests of the 4-match series at an average of 21.81. He took just one wicket in the Indore Test, but that wicket was of Kohli.

Bowling to Kohli is no different
Murphy said that when he looks back at his debut in Nagpur, he was bowling with full rhythm when Kohli came to the crease. At that time he was thinking that it would be great to bowl to such a player. The Australian bowler said that he was successful in getting Kohli out in the first three Tests. Bowling to him is no different from bowling to a lot of batsmen. In Indore, Murphy took the wicket of Kohli at a time when he was looking in good touch.
were out of the home team
Asked about playing for Australia, Murphy, who has missed out on his state’s playing XI several times in domestic cricket, said that he and Kuhneman talked about it. Kuhneman made his debut in Delhi. Both weren’t in the state teams at the start of the season and now it’s great to play Test cricket together here.
