Even before any sort of action between India and Australia, former Aussies stars are losing their sleep over Virat Kohli’s exceptional track record in Australia. He has been Australia’s nemesis since starting his international journey.

Team from Down Under have a habit of rubbing shoulders in a wrong way with the Indian captain and this is what fires Virat Kohli to give his best in the testing conditions.

If Glenn McGrath’s recent statement is to be believed, he is already dreaming about Virat Kohli and what he can do in Australia. The former star player has urged Australia pacers to target Virat once he is in Australia.

“I want to see Australians put pressure on Kohli and just see how he handles it,” McGrath said. “It’s going to be a good, hard, tough series. Kohli has got a bit of an aggressive attitude but showed last time he was out here he’s not going to take a backward step. It’s going to be an interesting summer.

“The Windies of the late 70s, early 80s were an incredible team and they used to target the captain of the opposition team and get on top of him and have a big impact. I tried to bring that in by targeting players when I played. If you get on top of them, the No.1 player and their captain, it makes the job so much easier.

“If they can get on top of Kohli I think it can have a big effect on the game.”
