Another exhilarating month of cricketing action came to end with the Ashes kicking off towards the end. India and Sri Lanka entertained one and all with the first Test match, but as one would expect, the second Test was dominated by the hosts. Australia pulled off one of the most enthralling Ashes triumphs ever as they managed to defeat England by 10 wickets at Gabba, thanks to a majestic century from their skipper Steve Smith.
Virat Kohli‘s fantastic performance against the Kiwis in the limited overs series was a great way to kick off the month and the lad continued to amass more runs. Towards the end, he scored a fantastic century on a tricky pitch at the Eden Gardens and followed it up with a double-ton. Fast bowlers Mitchell Starc and Bhuvneshwar Kumar had a month to remember who chipped in with loads of wickets.
As we do every month, CricTracker fan poll was conducted on our official Facebook handle and the fans gave a unanimous verdict for the month. Although there was some tough competition coming from Steve Smith’s 141*, more than 50% of the votes went to a single person and here’s the complete result of the Fan Poll.
1. Virat Kohli – 55% votes
Who else could be? Virat Kohli managed to bag 55% of the votes for his splendid rendition over the last 30 days. The Indian skipper led his side to a hard-fought series triumph against the Blackcaps, but when the Sri Lankans came, he was at his best. They did struggle against the Islanders at the Eden Gardens, but pulled back things brilliantly towards the end and almost snatched a victory.
His double century at Nagpur is one of the talking points of the months. The ease with which he clobbered their bowlers to all parks was just a case of the batsman being a little too over-qualified for the team. His 213-run knock entertained everyone and won heaps of praises from experts all around the globe.
