Indian captain Virat Kohli has admitted that this time in the Test series, the Australian team will face a lot of problems in front of their team. He said that the team will have to show the same competition in the Test series as in the limited overs series. India have named T20 after missing the ODI series on Australia tour and from December 17, they will play a four-match Test series with the hosts.
Kohli said after the third ODI on Tuesday, “We have to be competitive. This time they are a strong team. We have to be more competitive for our side. We believe that we can continue this rhythm in the Test series as well.” India had won the Test series 2–1 for the first time when they visited Australia last time, but David Warner and Steve Smith were not there at the time.
Kohli said it is difficult to bat in Australia, especially against their quality fast bowlers. He said that you need to show more discipline in Tests than limited overs.
He said, “We need to maintain the same competition in Tests as well. I think as a batsman you need to show more discipline in Tests. But before playing in Australia you have to understand that whenever you get a chance Is, you can score there.
