India vs Australia 1st Test: It seems like the Team India photoshoot was a whole lot of fun, at least for India captain Virat Kohli it was, who joked around with Ishant Sharma. The photoshoot took place ahead of the start of the first Test at Adelaide, where the entire team was present. Kohli was doing a selfie video where he wanted to get Ishant Sharma in the frame but realised he was too tall and jokingly he said, “Can’t get him in the frame.” Also Read - 'They Have to Pick a Fight' - India vs Australia Contests Dubbed Too Friendly as Former Stars Demand More Intensity
Kohli, who is in ominous form would be expected to come good in Australia, a place he loves. Kohli is merely eight runs shy of becoming fourth India to score 1000 runs in Tests in Australia after Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman and Rahul Dravid.
The India captain is also the No 1 Test and ODI batsman in the world currently. He is also in ominous form and is seeing the ball beautifully, this above video is a testament of that and how much time he has to make a decision. The ball was fast and tested him and he was equal to the task.
India will bank heavily on Kohli as always to get among the runs. On paper, India look a better side. This is also the case because Steve Smith and David Warner are serving bans and will not feature in the upcoming four-match Test series.
From India’s point of view, it would be interesting to see who opens the batting for India, now that Prithvi Shaw has been ruled out of the Test due to a left ankle injury he picked up during the tour game.
