Mohammed Shami suffered a hand injury during the batting and was retired hurt. Now Shami’s injury will be assessed. Captain Kohli says that Shami feels a serious injury as he is unable to raise his hand properly. Now, if Shami’s injury is serious, it may be difficult for him to play in the second Test.

He definitely said that Shami’s hand has to be scanned, and only after that the correct position will be known. Now Kohli will return home with the happiness of new guests coming in his family, but this defeat of Adelaide will remain green in the mind of not only Kohli but his teammates as well as every cricket lover of India for years.
The year 2020 was not really good for Kohli. He played in IPL after 8 months of captivity and the team could not reach the title. He then left for Australia and finished seven years without a century.
When Kohli made his debut in 2008, it never happened to him. He could not score a single century in any format in the entire calendar year. This year, Kohli played a total of 24 matches in all three formats, including 6 Tests and 9–9 ODIs and T20 matches, but not a single century came out of Kohli’s bat. His top individual score this year was 89. In 2008, Kohli played five ODIs and his personal highest total was 54 runs.
