Many of you would have wondered what the Virat Kohli and Marcus Stoinis moment was all about after the T20I at Brisbane. Truth be told, for nations like India and Australia who have often shared frosty relationships on the field, that little moment of camaraderie made for a welcome sight! There would have been some catching up as the two have known each other since the past 10 years where Marcus was a member of the ICC U-19 World Cup 2008 in Malaysia, up against Virat's India. Stoinis, of course is Steve Smith's contemporary in the same 2008 team and the two have been known to be pretty close even off the field. After representing his country in shortened formats like Hong Kong Sixes, he was rewarded with a limited overs series berth in 2015, where he made his ODI and T20I debut against England. He remains a limited overs specialist from Western Australia (WA) much like RCB teammate Nathan Coulter-Nile to lend balance to the team. Indian fans remember his cameo knocks for KXIP over the past few seasons. He was bought for a whopping INR 6.6 Crore in 2018 by Kings XI.
He demonstrated his ability to bowl in the death overs, winning that T20I for Australia in Brisbane after successfully defending 11 runs off the final over. Could he possibly be the answer to our death bowling woes? Ahead of the VIVO IPL 2019 Auction, RCB made a deal with KXIP that saw him trade places with fan favourite Mandeep Singh.
