Red-hot form, batting depth make India favourites against Australia

Board President’s XI all-rounder Washington Sundar

The tide has turned now with the all-rounder all set to make a comeback in the limited-overs series starting here on Sunday. In just 194 ODIs, he is level with Ricky Ponting with 30 centuries, the second-highest in ODIs.

India come into this series with an impeccable performance against Sri Lanka in the island nation, where the Men in Blue won all the matches, across all formats. Clarke feels that despite the disappointing result - which included their first-ever Test defeat to Bangladesh - the current Australian team has plenty of potential to play better cricket. "We will all be there to support India", says Ramya. When Laxman and Clarke were asked to pick the better captain and batsman among Kohli and Smith, Kohli seemed to be the clear victor.

Indian batting great VVS Laxman, who was also present at the event, said he did not foresee any controversy in the ODI series. But at the end of the day, it's up to you to be back.

"Another focal point, besides their batting, is their assessment as leaders".

While relief efforts are still underway in Texas, the Oklahoma National Guard is keeping a close eye on Hurricane Irma as well. Officials said Sunday that more than 2,500 Wisconsin Guard troops will go to Florida.

"Captaincy, I can't split them at the moment, I think it is very even at this stage". Along with that, like I said, what's important as a captain is that your team in winning. "We have got match-winning players, there are enough talented players to beat any team in the world", Clarke contended. A few months later, Australia have arrived in India, once again, and this time for the limited overs series, which is expected to be another humdinger of a contest. "They know the conditions really well... and this is a massive series for us", he said, predicting a 3-2 win for the visitors. None of us gave the Aussies a chance in the Test series, but they were most competitive. "I think it's time for the Australian team to really decide how they want to approach 2019 World Cup". So, there's a carrot right there, another carrot right there for Steve Smith and his team. They will be aggressive and will go all out.

Clarke was full of praises for the Bengal tiger under whom the Indian cricket team made it to the 2003 World Cup final.

In the Test series Kohli had expressed his displeasure after Smith looked up to his dressing room while deciding whether to review his lbw dismissal in the Bangalore match, and a war of words erupted between the two captains. Hopefully, they attain success and carry it forward into the Australian summer.

Hotstar got popularity during ICC cricket world cup 2015 when it was first introduced by the star India and got instant success in viewership. since then Hotstar has achieved 300% growth in its online viewership and they are now leading the online market in India.
