India is all set to lock horns with Australia in the four-Test series beginning on Thursday. Indian Batting line up can be a great threat for the hosts and particularly Indian skipper Virat Kohli can be a troublemaker for Australia. Considering the excellent form of Indian skipper, former Australia batsman Dean Jones has advised against provoking Kohli.
Former captain Ponting told cricket.Com.Au. Thinks that Virat might be provoking Australia on field . when asked if he will be provoking Australia on the field, Ponting said that "Well, he might. I don't necessarily believe that he is someone you shouldn't try to get under his skin. I have seen him rattled. He further added that Mitchell Johnson definitely rattled him a few times with some good hostile bowling and some good hostile body language around him. So, I would not sit back and let anyone bully. The way we go about playing cricket, especially at home, it is about good strong body language. That is the way Australians have always played their best. Former captain added.
India lost the four-Test series 0-2 four years ago but Kohli amassed 692 runs at an average of 86.25, including four centuries.
