Danielle Wyatt Reveals The "Beast" Gift Virat Kohli Gave To Her

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

The best response for this picture tweet had to be from Indians who took pride in Captain Kohli and Co sweeping the stadium and praised the efforts of the cricketers. It doesn't mean Ashwin is dropped, it means youngsters are being given a chance. He is exciting and is fulfilling the role of a finisher to the tee. "He just needs to be a bit more consistent with the bowling", he said.

India squad for first three ODIs: Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, Ajinkya Rahane, MS Dhone, Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvender Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami.

Predicting the scoreline, Laxman said: "4-1 to India because the Australian bowling department looks very weak".

India skipper Kohli has truly been, off late, at the best of his form, no matter which form of cricket you speak about and which part of the game you speak about. The spinners are inexperienced and that is where the Indians will have an upper hand.

Team India will start off with their home series against Australia with the first ODI to be played at Chidambaram Stadium on September 17.

Kohli and Smith in action.

"I think over the next few days, everybody would want to speak about Steve Smith vs Virat Kohli but at the end of the day, it comes down to one thing, and that is the team that wins. But again, irrespective of the number of runs you score, what matters is whether your team are winning matches or not", said Clarke, who is here as a TV expert for the upcoming five-match ODI series.

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

Kohli's men have been on a roll in tests and are just back after subjecting Sri Lanka to a tour whitewash by winning all nine matches there. "I think there are similarities". They will get to play against a top quality side like Australia. They haven't played as much cricket as they would have liked. "The team for the three ODIs against Australia has been selected in line with the rotation policy of the Board and accordingly R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja have been rested", said MSK Prasad, chairman of the senior selection committee.
