Steve Smith and David Warner are the star batsmen in the Australian cricket team. The two top order batsmen are arguably one of the best in the world and bring a whole lot of experience to the Australian lineup. Steven Smith happens to be one of the coolest heads in the modern game and Warner is touted as the exact opposite of that. The Australian team is in India to lock horns with an Indian side that will look to carry their form from the Lankan series back at home.
The series, which will comprise of 5 One Day Internationals and 3 T20Is, promises to be an engaging battle but Steven Smith and David Warner, who have played 98 and 96 ODI’s respectively, are on the verge of creating a unique record, something that players can only dream of. Can you imagine the two most experienced Australian batsmen would be making their debut in coloured jerseys in India? Startling isn’t it? The two players have played in the whites in India, but are yet to play on Indian soil in coloured clothes. The two have featured in the Indian Premier League as Warner plays for Sunrisers Hyderabad and Smith plays for Rising Pune Supergiant, but are yet to represent their nation in coloured jerseys.

So, it is going to be a special moment for the two old warhorses of Australia. For Virat Kohli, he has made it very clear that he is breeding a team with sights on 2019 cricket World Cup. For which, Virat has created a pool of 25-30 cricketers to choose from.
Virat Kohli, on the other hand, has made it very clear that he is breeding a team with 2019 cricket World Cup in sight, for which Virat has created a pool of 25-30 cricketers to choose from. The Indian team has been in good form but has not been tested yet, only playing against minnows like West Indies or Sri Lanka. So from team India’s point of view, this is going to be a series which will test them thoroughly.
The first ODI will be played at Chennai on September 17 before they move east to Kolkata for the second ODI.
