Team India skipper Virat Kohli, whose recent form has been spectacular, is gearing up to face one of his biggest challenges in the four-match Test series against Australia starting in Adelaide on December 6. And, former Australian cricketer Dean Jones went a step further to state that Kohli is flawless like the famous masterpiece Mona Lisa.
“Trying to find a weakness in Kohli’s game is like trying to find something wrong with the Mona Lisa. Teams must stop his cover drive and bowl in different areas,” Jones was quoted as saying by icc-cricket.com.
Kohli starred for India during the 2014-15 Test series in Australia with 692 runs from four games at 86.50 with four centuries and one half-century, and finished the four-match series as the second-highest scorer behind Steve Smith.
“On his last tour to Australia he was just awesome with four centuries in eight innings,” Jones said.
“He hits amazing cover drives and whips through mid-wicket with monotonous ease.”
“India are miles better than Australia in all formats”, and in the absence of Smith and David Warner, “if India don’t win this series, they will never win in Australia”.
The two teams will face-off in a four-match Test series before playing a three-match one-day international (ODI) series in January.
