From Kolkata to Perth, Virat Kohli remains the same and he wants his fans in the stadium to provide the same support to him and the team. Virat was seen urging the Indian spectators in the ground to get behind the Indian bowlers and pump them up on Day 3 of the second Test.

Kohli has often tried to connect with the fans and his gestures on the ground have worked well to exhort the fans in keeping the support loud and vocal.

India was looking for quick wickets and as the fans came in support, Mohammad Shami dismissed Shawn Marsh soon. 

Virat has looked animated in the first two games of this series. The send-off, the exchange of words was backed by a hundred in the first innings of Perth Test.

But things aren't looking easy ahead for team India as they are five down, chasing 287. India needs 175 more runs on the last day of the Test match.

It won't be an easy task for the last recognized batting pair, Hanuma Vihari, and Rishabh Pant. 

After KL Rahul (0) and Cheteshwar Pujara (4) were dismissed early in the chase, Kohli and Murali Vijay tried to get things back on track. But soon Nathan Lyon got both of them. Even Ajinkya Rahane couldn't make the most of his start and he fell on 30 runs.
