New captains were behind two thrilling Brisbane Tests

New captains were behind two thrilling Brisbane Tests

2 days ago

It has been a skippers’ Test series so far. The rival captains Michael Clarke (128) and Virat Kohli (115 and 141) scored three centuries between them in Adelaide last week, and the future Australian captain Steven Smith chimed in with the highest score of the Test. Smith carved 214 runs (162 and 52) without getting […]

India’s skipper MS Dhoni is definitely out for the Test opener, with India to be led by Virat Kohli. And it seems certain that Michael Clarke will miss out as well. This reminds me […]
