The series comprising of 3T20Is, Four Tests and 3 ODIs start from November 21 with the shortest format. It promises to be a mouthwatering series as Kohli is visiting to this nation as the No 1 batsman in the world in ODIs and Tests. He is in the form of his life as he recently became the fastest to 10,000 ODI runs and also the first Indian to slam three consecutive tons in ODI cricket. Kohli has had an incredible 2018 so far with 1063 runs in 10 Test matches at a stunning average of 59.05 including four centuries and four fifties.
Meanwhile, this time it seems India has its best chance of winning a Test series in Australia as David Warner and Steve Smith won’t be available as they are serving bans and the inexperience of the current side does not look better than No 1 Test side India.
