Virat Kohli vs Steve Smith soon: Will sparks fly again?

Virat Kohli vs Steve Smith soon: Will sparks fly again?”

So, it is time to strap your seat belt as the India vs Australia ODI series is scheduled to start on Sunday. He tried to take on Kohli who is taking some time off ahead of the limited overs series against Australia.

And Clarke believes those achievements highlight clearly the field in which each man excels. Virat Kohli is a better limited-overs batsman, only just.

Asked which batsmen he rates higher, Clarke said: 'Virat is a better ODI batsman but just about that. And with Kohli and Smith at the helm, it is hard to see how the two teams would lay off each other if it came down to mind-games.

"It doesn't matter who makes the runs - Kohli or Smith".

"India will win the series 4-1", said Laxman after former Australian captain Michael Clarke predicted the visitors will win the series 3-2".

Election commission official: 'High possibility' no changes will be recommended
DUNLAP: It oversimplifies the model to say that there's a direct path to fraud through the driver's license. Testimony ranged from studies of voter behavior to the vulnerability of the election infrastructure system.

Clarke added: "Another focal point besides their batting is their assessment as leaders". They are in a very good nick at the moment. In Indian Premier League, Warner plays for Sunrisers Hyderabad whereas Smith plays for Rising Pune Supergiant, where they have experienced wearing colourful costumes but apart from that, it will be the first instance for both.

"The team for the three ODIs against Australia has been selected in line with the rotation policy of the Board and accordingly Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja have been rested", All-India Senior Selection Committee chairman MSK Prasad said in a statement.

'But again, irrespective of the number of runs you score, what matters is whether your team is winning matches or not'.

The top spot on the ICC ODI Team Rankings is up for grabs as India takes on Australia in five-match one-day series.

The reigning 50-over World Champions have struggled to counter spin and captain Steve Smith has admitted it will a big challenge for them to adapt to spin-friendly conditions.

Australia, on the other hand, after settling their pay dispute landed in Bangladesh for the two-match Test series.

India and Australia would be considering this series to be a precursor for their preparations for the 2019 World Cup in England. This is a departure from the early days of Clarke's career where turners awaited visiting teams in India even in ODIs.

An India-Australia series played without fireworks on the field, without the sledging and banter is a rarity.
