Well, before entering into the topic, I would like to take you back to the match when Ravindra Jadeja cleaned up Virat Kohli in an IPL game at Pune in 2018. It was the game, which will be remembered for the stare given by Jadeja to Virat Kohli after dismissing him. Meanwhile, yet again it repeats in the net session at the very same venue.

Virat Kohli is placed at 2nd in ICC Test Rankings:
After one and a half years, exactly, at the same venue, Ravindra Jadeja dismissed Virat Kohli in a similar fashion. However, this time, it is in the net session. Ravindra Jadeja, who is pretty accurate with line and lengths, bowled a dipping quick delivery to Virat Kohli, who missed it to see his wickets get castled.
The right-handed batsman has immediately pointed the pitch factor, as he didn’t accept the defeat. However, the all-rounder didn’t have any complaints though. Despite that, the skipper Virat Kohli looked in full flow, as he knocked the ball right from the middle of his bat following the dismissal.
As far as the second Test is concerned, the Indian National Cricket Team would like to continue their magical winning streak in the longest format of the game. They hope to take an unassailable lead at Pune, which also consolidates their position in the ICC World Test Championship Points table.
They have no concerns whatsoever, as everything is falling in place for the team at the right moment. All the batsmen are in soothing form while the bowlers are doing a terrific job for the team in the recent past. All in all, the lineup got a strong balance.
Meanwhile, the forecast isn’t looking good for the game. Rain is on the cards. Much like the first Test, thunderstorms, and rain might be a regular appearance in Pune too. However, the good news is that the game will restart within 30 minutes once the rain stops pouring.
