India head to Australia for a full series down under after the completion of the IPL. Virat Kohli and his boys will be up against a competitive Australian team with the return of Steve Smith and David Warner. Another nail-biting hard-fought series is on the cards.
Meanwhile, former Australian skipper Steve Waugh has warned the Aussies against sledging the Indian skipper saying that it will not fathom his concentration a great deal. Australia and India will play a four-test series beginning with a day-night match in Adelaide on Dec. 17 and later tests at Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.
Steve Waugh Warns Aussies from Sledging Virat Kohli
The teams will also play three one-day internationals beginning Nov. 27 and three Twenty20 matches. Meanwhile, former Australia skipper Steve Waugh has warned the Aussies not to sledge Virat Kohli in the series.
“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,” Steve Waugh told SNTV in an interview on Thursday.
Waugh has been visiting India for over two decades now and he has been thoroughly by the culture of the country. He has also been taking pictures over the years of India’s rich cricketing culture as well.
In his newly released book “The Spirit of Cricket — India”, Steve Waugh has taken several pictures depicting the craze of cricket in the country. He is currently hosting an exhibition of the photos in Sydney.
The loser of the Eliminator between RCB and SRH will be knocked out of the tournament, while the winner will play a second qualifier against Delhi Capitals on Sunday. The winner of that game will play Mumbai Indians in the final on November 10.
