There is only some time left for the Test series between India and Australia to start in February. This challenge of the Indian team is going to start after the end of the ODI and T20 series against New Zealand. But even before the start of this series, the concern of Team India has increased, because Australia’s star batsman Steve Smith has returned to form.
