  • India's tour of Australia 2020-21 will begin with three-match ODI series on November 27.

  • Finch hailed Kohli as the 'best one-day player of all time'.

Aaron Finch and Virat Kolhi were teammates at Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 before they reached Australia this month to full the mandatory quarantine rules ahead of the upcoming series.

Ahead of the ODI leg beginning from November 27, Australia’s limited-overs captain Finch heaped praise on his Indian counterpart, hailing him as the ‘best one-day player of all time’.

“If you look at his record, it’s second to none. It really is remarkable,” Finch said during an online news conference on Thursday.

“What we have to keep in mind is that we have to keep looking to get him out.

“When you go away from that and you look to contain players, you can miss a trick. He’s probably the best one-day player of all time, so it’s about sticking to our plans and being really committed in that regard,” the 34-year-old added.

Kohli is one of the leading batsmen in all formats of the game and his records speak volumes about his ability. The Aussies would have to find new ways to dismiss the Indian skipper.

“If you look at his record it’s second to none. It really is remarkable. I think what we have to keep in mind is that we have to keep looking to get him out,” Finch added further.

After the three ODIs, both teams will lock horns in three T20Is and four Test matches.
