Former England skipper Michael Vaughan has cautioned the Australian cricket team, revealing a secret detail of the Indian team which, he feels, might pose a threat to the hosts in the second Test in Perth. Vaughan was on the same plane with the Indian team travelling to Perth and witnessed a great gesture by skipper Virat Kohli and his wife Anushka Sharma.
Vaughan took to Twitter and said that Kohli and his wife gave up their business class seats for the Indian fast bowlers as their body needed more rest after a hectic Adelaide Test which India won by 31 runs, all thanks to the hard work of the Indian bowlers.

Kohli's gesture will give huge boost to the team's confidence as this type of effort unites the team even more. India entered the Adelaide Test with only four regular bowlers, but they still managed to get 20 wickets. The visitors' pace battery of Ishant Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammad Shami bowled 123.4 Overs in the hot Adelaide weather.
Anushka is in Australia to celebrate her first marriage anniversary with husband Kohli. The couple shared lovely posts on their social media on Tuesday to wish their better half’s on the occasion.
Earlier, after defeating Australia in the opening Test, Ravi Shastri praised Indian bowlers and said, "They have to rest up, to hell with the nets. You just come there, mark your attendance and get away to the hotel. We know the Perth track is quick, it's a drop in surface, there will be something there for the fast bowlers."
