Indian Cricket Team has a strenuous task on their hands when they take on Australia on 9th February. The Men in Blue cannot afford to be complacent as this Australian side has got a habit of finding match-winners on a given day. A lot will depend on how Virat Kohli will fare as the batter has looked a bit scratchy.

Skipper Pat Cummins needs to be spot on with selection as he should not make the mistake of playing a match with 3 fast bowlers on rank turners. In the absence of Starc & Hazlewood for the opening Test match, the skipper will have to bowl long spells and at the same time manage his workload.

Greg Chappell on Virat Kohli

Greg Chappell was seen on Backstage with Boria show and was asked about Virat Kohli.

“Virat is a very good player. One of the best. And the best players always want to do well in big series. In Virat’s case if you see he always wants to win against Australia and has played some of his best innings against Australia. He considers Australia as his biggest challenge and always pushes himself to deliver his best against Australia.” said Greg Chappell.

“He will have a major impact on this series. If Virat scores big runs, Australia will find it very hard to win this series. On the other hand, if the Australian bowlers are able to stop Virat from scoring big, Australia will have a very good opportunity to win. In sum, Virat’s batting will have a major bearing on the series.” he added.

Crucial Series for Virat Kohli

The batter doesn’t have a promising record against Aussies as the batter hasn’t converted his starts. The former skipper will have to bat more responsibly this time as Rishabh Pant’s absence has made the middle order a bit fragile as they don’t have an experienced wicket-keeper batter present.

Last time in 2017, there were quite a lot of heated exchanges between Virat & Aussie players. It won’t be wrong to say that once again Virat Kohli would be targeted by Australian players. We may experience a scintillating face off between Nathan Lyon & Virat Kohli.
