Clarke: Kohli a better ODI batsman than Smith

India vs Australia: 'RCB Quota,' Scoffs Twitter After Squad Is Announced For First 3 ODIs

India vs Australia: 'RCB Quota,' Scoffs Twitter After Squad Is Announced For First 3 ODIs

England women's cricket team's star player Danielle Wyatt tweeted a picture of a bat which was gifted to her by the Indian captain Virat Kohli.

India skipper Virat Kohli is better than rival Steve Smith in ODI cricket according to former Australian skipper, Michael Clarke. "Virat is a better ODI batsman but just about that".

Earlier this year, spinners Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja shared 46 wickets between them to bowl India to a 2-1 series victory against Australia, who also tasted their maiden test defeat against a spin-heavy Bangladesh last month.

Kohli averages 55.76 in ODIs and 53.82 in T20Is, while Smith has recorded an average of 44.26 in ODIs and 21.55 in the shortest format of the game. "In terms of captaincy, both are equal and they are improving". Along with that, like I said, what's important as a captain is that your team is winning.

While there is evidence to back this theory, Kohli and the board has no option but to take Twitter conspiracy theories in their stride and take bold decisions in the run up to the 2019 World Cup.

He further said that though pacers Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood are injured, the Australian team have got no excuses.

"The way Kohli leads the team shows how positive and proactive he is". So, there's a carrot right there, another carrot right there for Steve Smith and his team.

"The amount of one-day cricket that India are going to play gives the management and selectors ample opportunity to try out various combinations", Laxman said. He is exciting and is fulfilling the role of a finisher to the tee. He also has a very big advantage of having someone like MS Dhoni on the field, probably one of the most successful captains.

Laxman is happy with the way some Indian players have returned after recovering from injuries. But the player who has impressed me the most is Hardik. "I am really impressed with the comeback that Dhawan made". I mean the openers, top-order, the fast bowling department, we've the most experience wicketkeeper-batsman in the world. "Talking about the Australians, they have depth in their batting line-up, but their bowling department is weak and inexperienced", he added.
