Consistently for two warm-up matches Dhoni's world champion escaped defeat with the help of young player Virat Kohli.In the first match against Sussex Virat slammed 71 o f83 deliveries and helped to cross 150 & posted a competitive target on the board. In the second match too, against Kent , up to a great extent Virat played the role of a rescuer & played a very sedate innings of 53 ball 78. In the both the matches ,Virat's run were indeed very crucial..
Virat guided team india to register their first win in their ongoing England series. Virat's awesome innings definitely added the much needed zing to team india's condition which otherwise would have continued being in impasse.In this way virat literally "warmed up" team india in the warm up matches.
Team india should take these wins as a motivation to do well in the upcoming limited over seires.This is a chancce for team india to prove, that their world cup victory was no fluke.
