With the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League done and dusted, the focus is now on international cricket. India will tour Australia for 3 ODIs and as many T20Is, followed by 4 Tests.
The Men in Blue are in Sydney where they will play the first ODI against the Aussies on November 27 at the SCG.
Players are expected to carry their form from the IPL to the national level where charismatic skipper Virat Kohli will once again lead the charge against the Aussies.
Father-to-be Kohli will continue to lead India till the first Test after which he will depart for India to be with his wife Anushka Sharma, who is due for delivery in January.
Kohli, despite having an at-par IPL campaign individually, once again failed to carry his side to an IPL trophy - something that he has failed to do in his last eight years as Royal Challengers Bangalore captain. And, much like every year, Kohli was the center for critics after the tournament even though he was successful in scoring runs in the latter half of the tournament. Cricketers and pundits commended Kohli's running between the wickets, for which the skipper boasts a healthy vegan diet.
As Team India skipper, Kohli will be banking on his teammates who also had a great IPL season.
With the likes of KL Rahul, Mayank Agarwal, Shubman Gill and others, the Men in Blue are going to have a cracker of a series in Australia.
