Australians can not be 'pussycats' when dealing with Kohli: Hughes

India vs Australia

After all the talk around two of the biggest cricketing nations in the world, India and Australia are all set to lock horns in the first T20 at Gabba, Perth on Wednesday, November 21.

In a bid to assert themselves as favourites for the Test series, which starts December 6 in Adelaide, India would be hoping to dominate the three T20Is. I will try to do well in T20 and take it from there."However, he accepted that the bounce in pitches like Brisbane and Perth suits his style of natural stroke making". So you have got to be prepared for it. Australia have rested their lead bowlers in Mitchell Stark and Pat Cummins to keep them fit for the Test series.

And the big hitting gloveman may yet be sighted by Australian crowds in their three-game one-day series in January.

The semi-finals are a repeat of the last two women's world event finals, with the first last-four match-up between Australia and Windies a rematch of the 2016 World T20 decider, while the second match between India and England replicates the 50-over World Cup finale at Lord's.

Rohit has scored two hundreds in T20 internationals this year - one against England at Bristol and the other against the West Indies at Lucknow early this month.

The match will be played on November 21, Wednesday, and it will commence from 01:20 pm India time.

Despite their lofty ranking, Australia have lost their last four T20 matches.

A curtailed T20I against South Africa did them no good.

However, Australia's focus will not exclusively be on Kohli.

In addition to Kohli, India have a wealth of batting riches at their disposal. The performances of KL Rahul and Dinesh Kartik.

Wrist spinner Yuzvendra Chahal is also the highest ranked bowler in the series.

They have never won a Test series in Australia. Well, former India captain Bishan Singh Bedi think so.

Langer will also be eager to see all-rounder Marcus Stoinis continue his excellent run of form after the 29-year-old plundered eight wickets at an average of 15.13 during the losing ODI series against South Africa. The number was achieved when India toured Australia three seasons ago.

"We played good exciting cricket last time but we didn't win games, we definitely want to change that and definitely every team should be looking to win Tests and series as a whole, and we believe that we have the quality to do so". As both the teams gear up for the highly-anticipated battle, we take a look at the top five players who can make a difference in the upcoming T20I series. "It was a shortened game - 10 overs a side - so you can not make too much out of it", Sharma said, not reading too much into Australia's defeat.
