India vs Australia 2017: Combined ODI XI
Runs continue to flow out of Virat Kohli’s three-lettered bat, season after season, and across formats. He recently equalled Ricky Ponting’s career tally of 30 ODI tons, and looks on course to topple Sachin Tendulkar’s all-time records. At the moment, however, his primary aim will be to score heavily against a side that matches his aggressive demeanour and fighting spirit.
The other side of the much-awaited Kohli vs Smith battle, Australia's captain, through his quirky yet effective batting style, has piled up runs aplenty in the last four seasons. Currently the No. 1 Test batsman in the world, Steve Smith might not be amongst the top 10 currently in the ODI rankings, but has looked in good touch in the handful of ODIs the Australians have played since January, scoring a century against Pakistan at the turn of the new year.
