Having being put in to bat, India surprisingly opened with Irfan Pathan (8) with Virender Sehwag being rested. The gamble though didn't pay off as the all-rounder was castled by pacer Steve Finn.
Kohli, who scored a half-century in the previous game, again looked in great touch. Along with Delhi companion Gambhir, he forged a 57-run stand for the second wicket.
