Indian captain Virat Kohli will return to Australia to play the first match of the Test series (India vs Australia Test Series). Kohli will return home from December 17 after the Test match to be played in Adelaide (First Test Ind vs Aus). The big question among cricket experts is whether in the absence of Kohli, the Indian team will be able to beat Australia in the longest format of cricket? However, most experts believe that this will be a very difficult challenge for Team India.
Former Australia captain Michael Clarke believes that no one can replace Virat Kohli. He said that if India defeats Australia in the absence of Kohli in Australia then it will be a matter of celebration.
Clarke said, ‘Virat Kohli captaincy and batting are both very useful. Who will bat in place of Virat. Of course, KL Rahul is very talented. I think he has experience playing in these conditions. He can do that. ‘
He said, ‘But no one can replace Virat Kohli. I like Ajinkya Rahane. He is a very good player. His captaincy is also very good.
Clarke added, ‘He is a very good captain strategically and it could be very good for India. You have to see this as an opportunity. You have to try it and create history. ‘
He told India Today, ‘If the Indian team can beat Australia in Australia without Virat Kohli, you will celebrate for a year. It will be an incredible win. ‘
He ended his talk saying, ‘I think Indian players will have to see it like this. They have to believe in themselves that they have the ability to defeat this Australian team.
