Ahead of India’s first T20I match against Australia, Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli clicked pictures with fans in Brisbane. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) took to Twitter and uploaded photos of Virat Kohli with the fans. “Always has time for his fans,” the BCCI captioned the pictures. Team India will play a full series against Australia (three T20Is, four Test matches and three ODIs), starting November 21 at the Gabba in Brisbane. The last time India toured Australia in 2014-15, they clinched the three-match T20I series 3-0 and will aim for a repeat performance.

With Steve Smith and David Warner out of action due to their involvement in the infamous Cape Town ball-tampering scandal, all focus will be on Kohli to get runs under his belt and lead the Indian team to victory.
In the eight Tests that Kohli has played in Australia, he has scored 992 runs at an average of 62 with a high score of 169 and five centuries to his name.
During the 2014-15 tour, Kohli scored 692 runs in the four-match series, including four centuries in the process at a staggering average of 86.50.
After the three-match T20I series, India will play a four-match Test series, starting December 6. India will end their tour of Australia with a three-match ODI series, starting January 12 in 2019.
