India and Australia are set to clash in their scheduled series, starting late November. Virat Kohli already started capturing all the eyes of the Australian cricket fraternity. India will play three ODIs, three T20Is, and four Tests. This cricket series will also witness cricket fans coming back to stadiums to enjoy the games.
The ODI cricket series will kickstart the Indian tour to Australia on November 27. The Test cricket series will begin on December 17 in Adelaide.
Ahead of the clash between the two cricketing monsters, former Australia coach Darren Lehmann praised Virat Kohli's approach.
Lehmann has said Virat Kohli will give his 100% to win the Test he is playing in. The India captain will play just the first Test of the four-match cricket series before he gets back to India for the birth of his first child. His wife, Anushka Sharma is due to give birth in early January.
“That’s just the way he plays; he plays full of energy and doesn’t want to lose,” Lehmann told Sydney Morning Herald according to news agency PTI.

The previous Australian batsman further added that the Indian batting star has the sign of an incredible player as he generally pushes his limit. It is what a great cricketer does according to Lehmann. Lehmann reviewed the intently fought Test cricket series in 2017 between the two teams to bring up Kohli's fighting spirit. Virat wants to win every game.
Previous Australian batsman, Greg Chappell talks about Kohli as being probably the best cricketers on the planet. Chappell, who once was the coach of Team India, said that Kohli is one of the most powerful cricketers on the planet right now.
