In this series, Indian captain Virat Kohli will return after playing a day-night Test match in Adelaide. Kohli absence could prove to be an advantage for Australia. Langer has said, "It's not only his batting.
But his energy, his passion for the game, the way he is in the field." I cannot believe that he displays energy in everything he does. Are we happy that he is not playing? So the answer is no, because we want to see competition. He also said, "Of course Virat is absence will have an impact, but we also know that India beat us last time, they are a very good team."
