Smith takes his side on tour to India for a five-match ODI series and a three-match T20 series prior to hosting England in the Ashes this winter, and Clarke is backing Kohli to lead his charges to victory against the Australians.
However, former skipper Michael Clarke, however, said that Australia can win the series by a margin of 3-2.

Clarke said that Virat is a better ODI batsman than Smith, "but just by that much".

"And at the end of the day, it's up to you to be on the spot".
Clarke added: "Another focal point besides their batting is their assessment as leaders".
