Virat Kohli Reveals Who Will Open The Innings With Rohit Sharma

Virat Kohli Reveals Who Will Open The Innings With Rohit Sharma

India skipper Virat Kohli said Saturday (16) that competitiveness and "mind games" can be good for cricket as his team prepares to face their arch-rival Australia in a one-day series starting Sunday (17). While for India it will be their second step at experimentation, the visitors will look forward to implement their first plan in a bid to create a formidable side for the coveted tournament.

"You have to understand the wickets are really good to play". Legends of the game too involved themselves in the battle of words - some blamed Kohli and his aggressiveness while some used phrases of disppointment towards Smith. Kohli said they won't be treating any series differently. But to beat India especially in India is very tough.

Smith expects spin to play a big role, particularly through the middle overs when there will be a need to slow down the proceedings, and could end up naming just two fast bowlers - Pat Cummins and Nathan Coulter-Nile - in the line-up.

Kohli faltered in the Test series - 46 runs in five innings, his poorest return from a Test series on home soil - and has a point to prove against Australia.

India, meanwhile, has released its own opener Shikhar Dhawan for the first three ODIs to tend to his sick wife.

Earlier, an Australian Journalist has insulted Indian Skipper Virat Kohli on social media.

The intriguing part of the selection is that the two premier pacers Mohammad Shami and Umesh Yadav are back from rest whereas the same consideration was not shown to Ashwin and Jadeja. The advantage for him is he still has a reasonable number of games to arrive at the right formula, with the World Cup still two years away.

"There's still a long way to go". Having said that, when you have this kind of versatility in your teams, it gives captain and coach a little bit of relief that these guys can take up any position they are offered. India failed Tendulkar when they could not get past the final hurdle, losing by three runs. Maybe if they were playing before in the same environment as others did, they would have achieved the same amount of stuff.

The format changes from the five-day Tests to the fifty over ODIs but the intensity, passion and will to win will be the same, something both teams have adopted from their fiery, oft-grumpy leaders Steve Smith and Virat Kohli respectively. The 36-year-old looks certain to add to his 301 ODI caps on Sunday but questions marks remain on whether he is worthy of a place in the World Cup squad. We are all here thinking wherever the team wants us to play we should do the job. "I think it is very important to have that competitiveness in every series that you play". If somebody starts saying that he should go then it's unfair.
