The Indian team has reached Australia tour. Captain Virat Kohli will become a father in January. Due to this, they will go on paternity leave only after playing the first match in the 4 Test series. On this, former England captain Michael Vaughan said that it will be easy for Australia to win the Border-Gavaskar series if Kohli withdraws from the series.
