Australian pacer Pat Cummins has made a bold prediction on Virat Kohli. The Indian team is set to travel to Australia in November and Cummins has made a wild prediction that captain Virat Kohli won’t be able to smash a century in the tour.

“My brave, bold prediction ... I’d say I think Virat Kohli is not going to get a hundred and we’re going to knock them off over here,” Cummins said.

Meanwhile, former Australia pacer Glenn McGrath has called for Australian pacers to put pressure on Kohli and see how he handles it. The Indian captain’s aggression means that he is always up for a challenge and the legendary former Australian pacer used the West Indies team of the 70s and 80s as an example to prove his point about pressuring the opposition captain.

 “I want to see Australians put pressure on Kohli and just see how he handles it,” McGrath said. “It’s going to be a good, hard, tough series. Kohli has got a bit of an aggressive attitude but showed last time he was out here he’s not going to take a backward step. It’s going to be an interesting summer.

“The Windies of the late 70s, early 80s were an incredible team and they used to target the captain of the opposition team and get on top of him and have a big impact. I tried to bring that in by targeting players when I played. If you get on top of them, the No.1 player and their captain, it makes the job so much easier.

“If they can get on top of Kohli I think it can have a big effect on the game.”

India are currently in England as they are on a long tour that consists of three T20Is – which have been concluded with the visitors winning 2-1 – three ODIs and five Tests.
