Also, the fact that both teams are at full-strength is great news for aficionados and connoisseurs alike.

India captain Virat Kohli has no doubt there will be no dearth of intense action.

“When you are playing Australia, you don’t look at the relevance of the series. It’s about playing against the best. The way they are playing now, after Steve and David have come back, it’s pretty intense,” Kohli said.

SERGIO OLIVA JR.: 2021 WILL BE MY YEAR

This son of three-time Mr. Olympia Sergio Oliva never holds back. Best of all, he can dish it out and take it too, which is why many other pros avoid engaging with him at all.
