'Virat Kohli is the best player in the world' says Australian captain Aaron Finch

India and Australia will play a T20I series starting from tomorrow in Brisbane. India will be led by skipper Virat Kohli and Aaron Finch will lead Australia in absence of Steve Smith amid ball-tampering scandal.

Australia will be up against India, who haven't lost a single T20Is in 2018. The Indian batsmen are in top form with their deputy Rohit Sharma becoming the highest run getter in the world early this month.

 

Finch, however, believes that his team can turn it around. "Although we lost in the UAE to Pakistan, who are a very good T20 side, I think we played some really good cricket in Zimbabwe," Finch said. "We played some good cricket in the tri-series against very good England and New Zealand teams last (this) year. We are still very confident in this format."

However, Australia's focus will not solely be on Kohli. "You can't underestimate anyone in the Indian side," Finch cautioned. "Obviously, Virat is the best player in the world at the moment and has been for some time in the shorter formats.

Australia begin their multi-format series in Brisbane. While pace and bounce are expected, will spinners too come into play?
