Kohli a better skipper than Smith: Laxman

Kohli a better skipper than Smith: Laxman

But for Steven Smith and David Warner who have played 98 and 96 ODI's respectively are on the verge of creating a unique record, some can only dream off. Can you imagine the two most experienced Australian batsmen would be making their debut in coloured clothes versus India? "Also it doesn't mean that Ashwin and Jadeja have been dropped", Laxman tried to explain his viewpoint.

On India's top spinning duo - R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja - being "rested" for the series, Laxman said: "The communication channel is very clear. We have two wonderful wrist spinners (Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav) and they need to be given an opportunity".

Former India batsman VVS Laxman favoured Kohli as a better captain and said: "For me, Virat Kohli is a better captain; both of them are young and both of them are young in their captaincy career". "He is exciting and is fulfilling the role of a finisher".

Kohli and Smith in action. "Asked if playing an ODI series was ideal preparation ahead of the Ashes series, Smith said", I don't think there is a problem with that".

"I think over the next few days, everybody would want to speak about Steve Smith vs Virat Kohli but at the end of the day, it comes down to one thing, and that is the team that wins".

BCCI took on Twitter to post the list of 16 Indian players for 5 matches ODI series between the two teams that will start on September 17. "But again, irrespective of the number of runs you score, what matters is whether your team are winning matches or not", said Clarke, who is here as a TV expert for the upcoming five-match ODI series.

Clarke also said Australia needs to decide on their style of play.

"I think this Australian team has huge potential, I think it's now time to turn that potential into consistent performance". He has got some experience playing in the IPL. They haven't played as much cricket as they would have liked.

Danielle Wyatt, member of the world-cup winning England women's team, was the center of attraction on Twitter as she revealed a special gift from Indian skipper Virat Kohli but made a silly mistake.
