"Virat Kohli is probably the best player I've ever seen in my life for so many reasons, not only batting but his energy and passion for the game, the way he fields", Langer told reporters by video conference on Friday.

Young batting phenomenon Will Pucovski has been named in Australia's expanded 17-man squad for the upcoming Test series against India.

"Last time we played Test cricket, we loved the combination of Joe Burns and David Warner. So, at this point, I'd say that'll remain the same", Langer was quoted as saying by the ICC website.

Virat Kohli, the Indian cricket team skipper who is now in Australia for the upcoming three match and three ODI series, has conveyed his Diwali wishes to millions of Indians on his Instagram handle. "We've still got a lot of work to do, a lot of homework to do", he added.

Langer said he wanted Australia to have consistency in their line-up, and he is prepared to back the players who now hold their spots.

"It's always nice when going into a Test match to know as far out as possible for the players who will play".

"What we saw in the opening rounds of the Marsh Sheffield Shield were a number of players performing exceptionally well", National selector Trevor Hohns said Thursday. That's the fact and that's what we're looking at. "And the fact is Will's been so good, we can't ignore him".

He recently said he was in a good head space and ready to challenge for a Test berth once again, vying with incumbent Burns, who has had a lean spell.

Warner and Burns' partnerships have yielded 1,365 runs at an average of 50.55 for Australia in Tests.

Abbott has enjoyed a fine start to the Sheffield Shield season with both bat and ball, including his maiden first-class century against Tasmania this week.

Pucovski has a history of battling mental health issues and has taken time off from the game twice when on the cusp of test selection. But that's what we have to weigh up.

"We went through a period where there was lots of ins and outs, and in my view, we should back the guys in there", he said. "We very much look forward to Will developing further on the worldwide stage", Hohns said. It's a new step-up for him.

As the nation gets together to celebrate a very different Diwali this year amidst the surfing COVID-19 pandemic, Indian skipper Virat Kohli urged his millions of fans to celebrate this Diwali without any crackers. And if you're just outside the team, you got to keep pushing so hard if you get an opportunity.
