Aussies will have advantage in India, says Clarke

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

India captain Virat Kohli is a superior one-day global batsman to Australia counterpart Steve Smith, according to former Aussie skipper Michael Clarke. On his first tour in 2003, Australia defeated India in a tri-series final in Kolkata on a pitch that turned square from the first ball.

And Clarke believes those achievements highlight clearly the field in which each man excels.

People started mocking the Indian skipper for excluding veterans like Yuvraj Singh and Suresh Raina who are good in limited-overs cricket.

Stating that the IPL experience will help the Aussies, Clarke said, "With these players now being involved in the IPL, India is like a second home because you spend so much time here". 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.

Comparisons between Kohli and Smith are inevitable, and Laxman makes no bones about the fact that he feels Kohli is a better captain.

"They are not only two modern-day captains but two modern-day greats".

Clarke added: "Another focal point besides their batting is their assessment as leaders".

"In terms of captaincy, both are equal and they are improving".

US Supreme Court Gives Green Signal to Trump's Travel Ban on Refugee
By that point, the original 90-day travel ban will have lapsed and the 120-day refugee ban will have just a few weeks to run. Lower courts had blocked the ban, saying Trump overstepped his authority and unconstitutionally targeted Muslims.

When asked whether Virat Kohli's Team India is more prepared to win overseason, Clarke refused to compare the present team with that of Sourav Ganguly's. The Royal Challengers Bangalore duo are trying to replicate similar success with the national team as Kohli has been backing the spinner in ODIs and T20Is.

Australia earlier this year toured India for the four-match Test series, which they lost 2-1.

David Warner hit 64 at the top of the order, while Marcus Stoinis top-scored with 76 before Ashton Agar took 4-44 to boost his chances of selection in the series.

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.

Indian and Australian cricket teams are all set to face each other in the upcoming cricket series which is to be played on Indian grounds. Well, from the very beginning, we very well know the ethics of Australian 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.

'This team needs to back its talent as there's enough talent in the squad. The players need to identify their roles during this India series. I've been battling, to be honest, probably the last 18 months.
