Virat Kohli has had a great time so far leading the Indian team in test cricket. Many of the fans are viewing him as a full time captain for all three formats. India's most successful captain MS Dhoni is still in play and very much eager to retain his good form as a captain. No one can forget the wonders he has done for team India. And he is well known to bounce back hard. His captaincy skills are at the best when India plays in an ICC event. So let us wait and see how good the team performs in Australia and later in the Asia Cup 2016 and Twenty20 world cup 2016.
Another exciting news is about the team selection for India. Yuvraj Singh makes a comeback to the T20 scene. He is picked in the squad. Surprisingly he would have been a better choice for the ODI cricket but he was picked for the shortest format. Remembering his six sixes in an over in the inaugural T20 world cup in 2007, the fans would be eager to see if he can recreate some magic in T20 cricket again.
Australia is playing a test series against West Indies when this article is being written. The Australian team would love to succeed against India for a psychological advantage when they travel to India for the T20 world cup.
Keep reading as we would write more about the series as well as MCL 2020 and U19 cricket world cup that begins soon this month. Just an update - MCL 2020 live streaming will be available on Sony Six and Sony Liv where you would be able to enjoy the retired cricket stars back in action.
