India vs Australia, 1st ODI

Mumbai: The Indian cricket team could play at least one Day-Night Test during its tour of Australia later this year after skipper Virat Kohli said on Monday he was open to the idea. We are absolutely open to playing a day-night Test.

India will play two Tests in New Zealand next month. After he was asked who would win the series, Ponting suggested that India will be eager to reclaim themselves from their last series defeat against Australia while the tourists will be high on confidence to continue their winning streak. We're ready and up for the challenge whether it's Gabba, doesn't matter to us.

It is understood that the "Meet and Greet" session was meant to discuss a range of policy issues with regards to the ICC's proposed four-day Tests, one global meet per year, a four-nation Super series involving the 'Big Three and Day-Night Tests.

"We played the day-night Test here, we were pretty happy with how it went", Kohli reasoned.

"We should not look forward to easy games and, going to Australia, you should not expect anything easy". "We do have the skill-sets as a team now to compete against anyone in the world, anywhere, in any format of the game". If you take out David (Warner) and Steve (Smith). "We're pretty excited for it".

Inside sources told People magazine the meeting is to serve as an opportunity to "talk things through". Harry and Meghan spent the holidays in Canada with 8-month-old son Archie in tow.

Aaron Finch-led Australia edged out hosts India 3-2 previous year after losing the opening two games and Kohli believes a new close-fought battle will be fought this week. "Having played a lot against each other, we know the strengths and weaknesses of either side". "In the year of the World Cup as many games as we play together as a team, it's going to benefit us, especially the white-ball cricket". "So, as I said, we want to keep challenging ourselves as a team and we're the top two sides in the table as well, in the world championship".

He wrote: "I think he'll do a great job for Australia in the middle order".

Six of the Aussies' likely squad for the next summer are in India for this week's ODI series, but Kohli says no advantage can be taken from that into the Tests.

INDIA: Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (WK), Kedar Jadhav, Shivam Dube, Ravindra Jadeja, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Kuldeep Yadav.
