India vs Australia: ‘Right now, Virat is our captain,’ Ajinkya Rahane on Kohli’s paternity leave.

The high-voltage Test series between India and Australia will kick off from Thursday with the day-night Test in Adelaide. It will be the first time the Indian team will be playing an overseas pink-ball Test and fans are eager to see how Virat Kohli & co. performs amid tough conditions.

The India team performed brilliantly in the warm-up game in the absence of Kohli against the Australia-A team, igniting hopes among fans that the contest in Adelaide could be closer than what people expect it to be.

Australia are also facing questions over their team set-up as David Warner has been ruled out from the first Test due to groin injury and young Will Pucosvki may miss out too due to concussion-related issues. But for India, there is one major question in front of them in the four-match Test series, can they cope without Virat Kohli?
