Australian batsman Marnus Labuschagne has preferred compatriot Steve Smith over Virat Kohli in Test cricket. But it is believed that the Indian captain has no match in the limited overs. Smith and Kohli are the top two batsmen in the Test rankings.
Labuschain believes Smith's ability to bat consistently under different circumstances makes him special. India Today quoted LaBushain as saying, 'I think Smith has told that he can find a way out in every situation in Test cricket. So this is what makes him the number 1 player in Tests.
He said, 'He scored in India, scored in England. In Australia, they are scoring consistently. So it hardly matters to him where he is playing and under what circumstances. He finds a way to score runs. Virat has done the same but in Test cricket I will go with Smith.

He said, 'Virat is fantastic in limited overs cricket. The way he finishes the innings, the way he finishes the match, the way he chases the target of runs. I think I learned a lot from him. ' Labushain has been selected in the 26-man squad for the proposed ODI series against England.
