'Paid the price': Virat Kohli's 'disrespectful' act backfires against Australia

Adam Zampa is one of the few bowlers in the world who can claim to have the wood over Virat Kohli, after claiming his wicket four times in the past year.

Zampa will head to Rajkot for Friday's second ODI with an advantage over the world's best batsman, having removed the Indian captain six times in international cricket.

The Australian legspinner had Kohli caught and bowled in Tuesday night's big win over India, after also getting him three times on last year's limited-overs tour.

In total, Zampa has bowled 16.1 overs at Kohli in ODIs, with figures of 4-126. He has also taken his wicket twice in Twenty20s internationals.

Aussie great Mark Waugh suggested Kohli hadn’t shown Zampa enough respect.

“I just don’t think he’s showing Zampa enough respect and he paid the price”, Waugh said in commentary for Fox Cricket on Tuesday.

Kohli put it down to the fact that Zampa simply knows he can get him out.

"He was probably one bowler, who had more belief than others (in the 2019 tour) I felt," Kohli said this week.

"Throughout the game, even when he was hit for boundaries, he kept coming at the batsmen and try and get them out, which I think is important for a wrist-spinner.

"And his mindset was a stand out for them in the last series.

"He's still skilful enough to make breakthrough also, so we have to be respectful but at the same time have belief in our game to be able to play well against them."

Zampa’s insane run against Kohli

Incredibly, Zampa has earned Kohli's scalp double the amount of times he has any other batsman, with his next best wicket haul three times against other batsman.

Zampa has had Kohli out trying to go down the ground on five of the six occasions.

Kohli's wicket will again be the prized scalp in Rajkot and for the final game of the series in Bangalore.

Removed for 16 on Tuesday, Kohli averages a touch under 60 in one-day cricket and rarely fails twice in a row.
