Adelaide, The Indian batting is the best in the world but not invincible especially if Virat Kohli is contained,said Australia vice-captain and pacer Josh Hazlewood here on Monday.
Addressing the media,he said,’I see the Indian line up as the best in the world, if not right up there, led by Virat and I think they feed a lot off him and how he goes about things.’
The bowler said that Australia team has been making plans for Kohli and they definitely have a few options.He also said that sledging the India skipper does not figure in those options.
‘I think we’ll obviously have a chat about him before the game starts. We’ll come up with a couple of options. It’s about what conditions suit, with a player of that caliber you need a few options,’he added.
Speaking about the first Test in Adelaide, Hazlewood said early wickets be very crucial and can decide the course of the game.
Kohli had scored 692 runs, including four hundreds, during India’s previous Test tour of Australia.India have been touted as favourites against Australia in the absence of the banned batting duo of Steve Smith and David Warner.
