Speaking to Fox Sports, Nathan Lyon said, ‘It is very disappointing for the series. You want to play with the best players in the world. I believe that Virat Kohli is the best player in the world, like Steve Smith and Labushen. It is disappointing, but India still has many star players. You look at Pujara, Rahane, and there are many great young players in his team. It is still going to be a big challenge for us. If Virat is not here, it does not mean that we will be able to lift the trophy easily. We still have to do a lot of work and homework. ‘

Every time Team India visits Australia, many former players from Australia appeal to the players not to sledge Kohli, because it makes Kohli and fire up and perform much better. ‘
