Melbourne, Nov 26 With no Rohit Sharma in India’s limited-overs side, Australia’s focus will be on getting Virat Kohli out as the two teams kick off the tour with a 3-match ODI series, starting on November 27. The 1st ODI, a Day/Night fixture, will be held at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) and will mark the start of Australia’s international home summer season. In 248 ODI matches in his career so far, Virat Kohli has amassed 11867 runs at an average of 59.34 and has scored 43 hundreds, only second to Sachin Tendulkar’s tally of 49 ODI centuries. Australia limited-overs captain Aaron Finch believes that Kohli’s ‘second to none’ records in the 50-over format makes him ‘probably’ the best ODI player of all time. "If you look at his (Kohli) record it's second to none. It really is remarkable. I think what we have to keep in mind is that we have to keep looking to get him out. When you go away from that and you look to contain players you can miss a trick there. There's not too many chinks in his armour," Finch said about his RCB captain, as quoted by cricket.com.au. "He's probably the best one-day player of all time so it's about sticking to our plans and being really committed in that regard," he added. Coming to the choice of playing XI for the 1st ODI against India, which will succeed Australia’s 2-1 win in England, Finch praised his bowling of allrounders Glenn Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis. Maxwell had scored a 90- ball 108 in the 3rd ODI after bowling a fairly economical spell of 4 overs in Manchester. "What Maxi's shown in T20 cricket in particular is his bowling keeps improving all the time. I think Marcus Stoinis.
