Australia's tour of India: Can Aussies put brakes on hosts' winning run?

India and Australia will play five ODIs and three T20 Internationals, starting with the first 50-over game here on September 17. "Smith, I believe, is a better Test batsman", Clarke said during a media interaction in Delhi on Tuesday. It is important to be good in all the three formats even though they require different skills. Two young captains, two very good players, two very good captains and they both continue to improve.

Dhawan, the Man of The Series in Tests, smashed 548 runs for India in the complete series.

"They (India) have played a lot of one-day cricket in the recent past".

People started mocking the Indian skipper for excluding veterans like Yuvraj Singh and Suresh Raina who are good in limited-overs cricket.

Some excited local media went as far to declare it the death-knell for Faulkner's worldwide career after 67 ODIs, only weeks before his 27th birthday.The fast-bowling all-rounder knew better, however, and his spell in the freezer is set to end in India this month where Australia play the hosts in five ODIs."It was pretty tough", Faulkner said of his axing in comments published by Cricket Australia's website on Tuesday.

Clarke also said Australia needs to decide on their style of play. This time, he has additional responsibility as skipper, which comes into larger focus as India have set themselves early on the road to the 2019 ODI World Cup. "If we do that then hopefully it can go a long way in us having success on this tour", Smith said after arriving in India. Both teams will fight hard and it won't be any different this season. Two of the strongest teams in the world will be up against each other in front of a capacity crowd in India.

Amidst all this, chances of Yuvraj making a return to India's playing XI looks very bleak at the moment. I've been battling, to be honest, probably the last 18 months. "They will miss Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood, but there are enough talented players in the squad to beat any team in the world", he added.
