Australia's tour of India: Can Aussies put brakes on hosts' winning run?

Virat Kohli and Steve Smith The India Australia series will be the last to be governed by the old lawsMore

The previous visit of Australia to India, for the Test series, concluded with Virat Kohli suggesting that his friendship with a few cricketers from Down Under may have been soured to the point of no return.

Laxman was delighted by the progress of Hardik Pandya. "The spin department is where we've seen a lot of experimentation in order to get a good wrist spinner, and also the finisher's role". It isn't a coincidence-Jadeja went wicket-less in the last three ODIs he played (Champions Trophy final and two matches in West Indies), and Ashwin took only four wickets in his last five ODIs (across Champions Trophy and in West Indies again).

While the Australians have their task cut out against the Indians, the formidable batting line-up of the visitors poses a challenge for the Indian bowlers too. Don't go by the dictionary meaning of rested. "He just needs to be a bit more consistent with the bowling", he said.

Pacer Umesh Yadav and Mohammed Shami have been recalled while youngster Shardul Thakur has been dropped.

While predicting a favourable scoreline for India, Laxman was also of the opinion that it won't come easy pointing out that in the last home season that saw India face New Zealand, England, Bangladesh and Australia, it was the series against the Aussies that turned out to be the most competitive. For Australia they need to find a way to get those three batsmen out ASAP, because if you allow them to bat for a long time, they just score so freely.

While Clarke backed Australia to win the series 3-2 and rated Steve Smith a better Test batsman than Virat Kohli, Laxman, rating Kohli the better captain of the two, put faith in India claiming it 4-1. "Smith I believe is a better Test batsman", Clarke said.

India take on Australia in the second One-Day International (ODI) at Eden Gardens, in Kolkata. Two of the strongest teams in the world will be up against each other in front of a capacity crowd in India. Virat's team is winning.

An Australian Journalist have insulted Indian Skipper Virat Kohli on social media. With Steve Smith, David Warner, Glenn Maxwell, Aaron Finch all familiar with Indian conditions with loads of IPL experience behind them, they will no doubt would pose a major threat to the Indian bowling attack.

"As leaders, I think it's very even at this stage of their careers".

They are a unsafe ODI side, especially with players such as Smith, Warner and Maxwell having great IPL experience of playing in India, they can make life tough for the home team.
