In just 194 ODIs, he is level with Ricky Ponting with 30 centuries, the second-highest in ODIs.
India comes into the series having demolished Sri Lanka in their own backyard. I think whoever is going to hold on to the catches, say Kohli or Sharma and Dhawan gave a chance early, Australia have to hang on to it. "Virat is a better captain and while they are both young, Smith wasn't very proactive during the Test series. Smith I believe is a better Test batsman", Clarke said.
Talking about the rivalry between Virat Kohli and Steve Smith, Clarke said that even though Virat Kohli is a better limited overs batsman, Smith gets the vote in the longer format. "But Kohli's team is winning and Smith needs to find a way to grab that momentum", he added. At the end of the day, your job as a captain is to win.
Clarke added: "Another focal point besides their batting is their assessment as leaders". So you have to rely on your friends and family and your team mates as well."I didn't get too much feedback (from selectors), to be honest."They said the pace has dropped down a little bit, maybe."But I bowl a lot of variations, so it's a tough one".
"Hardik is a player who is very exciting and with each and every match he is improving". Faulkner said it would be a "test" of character for Australia to beat in-form India at home.

Australia's preparations for the five-match ODI series gets underway with a 50-over warm-up game in Chennai on Tuesday (September 12). "Virat the way he used the spinners and some senior bowlers in Sri Lanka was very impressive", he said.
Australia recently suffered their first-ever Test loss to Bangladesh and they were beaten by India 2-1 earlier in the year but Clarke sees no reason why there should be any comparison between the ODI and Test squads.
On a serious note, he said: "Obviously, this is an opportunity for this Australian side to translate their potential into consistent performance".
While there is evidence to back this theory, Kohli and the board has no option but to take Twitter conspiracy theories in their stride and take bold decisions in the run up to the 2019 World Cup. Hopefully, they attain success and carry it forward into the Australian summer. I have been battling - to be honest - probably the last 18 months, so it's been nice to be home with my team-mates in Tassie [Tasamania] and hit the gym hard. I think this team has that aggressive intent because they've been made this way by aggressive captains. Currently, South Africa is at number one position with Australia and India at number two and three respectively. "Both Virat and (Steven) Smith are modern day greats".
