AUS vs IND: Former Australia skipper Steve Waugh has warned the Australian team to not sledge Virat Kohli in upcoming India’s Tour Of Australia. He feels that the on-field sledging will not at all affect Virat Kohli and it might spur him to give his best. India will tour Australia for a complete Tour from November.
Team India will leave for Australia after the completion of the IPL 2020. There are only three games left for IPL 2020 to conclude. The final will be played on November 10 and India will leave UAE on November 12.
“Sledging is not going to worry Virat Kohli, it doesn’t work against the great players and you’re better off leaving those guys alone. I think any extra motivation will make them dig in more and get more runs. So you’re better off not saying much to him,” Waugh told SNTV in an interview on Thursday.
AUS vs IND: India will look to retain the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.
Team India will face off Australia for the much-awaited Test series in December. The four-match Test series will start with a day-night Test match in Adelaide Oval on December 17 followed by Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. Both the teams will also play three ODIs beginning November 27 and three Twenty20 matches.
India is the current holders of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy since 2017. They secured a historic Test series win in Australia in 2018-19. Virat Kohli and Co. will be looking to put on a similar display in the upcoming series as well. India has already announced their squads for all the three formats.
