Don't think with the rehabilitation time and the quarantine period in Australia, he will be able to make it in time for the limited-overs series.”

Earlier former captain Steve Waugh has said that Australia must not engage Kohli in verbal duel. In a video posted by ESPN Cricinfo, Waugh said sledging doesn’t work against world’s best.

"Sledging is not going to worry Virat Kohli, it doesn't work against the great players and you're better off leaving those guys alone"."I think any extra motivation will make them dig in more and get more runs. So, you're better off not saying much to him", he added.
