The India-Australia Test series Down Under is expected to be a thriller especially keeping in mind the fact that coronavirus pandemic has seen sports going into hibernation in the last few months.

And Australia opener David Warner believes that it will be interesting to see Virat Kohli and Steve Smith clash over four Test matches.

But he went on to add that it was more about the two teams battling it out.

"In comparison with him [Kohli] and Smith, they are obviously two of the best batters in the world across all three formats. It is going to be a great battle between them if that's what people are anticipating," David Warner said on India Today show Inspiration.

"For us, it's about Australia vs India, we don't look at individual battles. If it's individual, it's bowler vs batter. At the end of the day, we have to do our research well. We know our line and lengths to bowl in Australia. Use our conditions right. Hopefully, the contest is great between bat and ball and great spirit of cricket battle as well."

Earlier Smith had spoken about how the relation between him and Kohli has developed in the last few months.

"I had few conversations with him (Virat) off the field, few messages here and there in recent times just to see how things are going in India. He is a terrific guy and we both play hard out on the field and play as well for our respective teams and its part of the game," Smith said.
