There are still around four months left in India's tour to Australia and the battle of words has started already. Australian pacer Pat Cummins is confident of not letting Indian captain Virat Kohli score even a single century during the four-Test series.
Cummins said the Indian skipper will find it hard to score against them. He called his prediction bold knowing the fact that Kohli had scored four hundreds against them when India had visited Australia in 2014-15. This included centuries in both innings of the Adelaide Test.
Speaking at a Channel Seven function on Tuesday morning at the SCG, Cummins said, “My brave, bold prediction ... I’d say I think Virat Kohli is not going to get a hundred and we’re going to knock them off over here."
Kohli has a good record in Australia. He has scored 992 runs in 8 matches with an average of 62.00. Apart from five hundreds, he has a couple of fifties there as well.
Cummins' mates Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood would look to keep Kohli under their clutch and trouble the tourists.
India will play three T20Is starting from November 21 of this year, four Tests and three ODIs in Australia.
