Virat Kohli vs Steve Smith

If that is the case and the spinners finally get to play their skills on a damp Eden pitch, then it'll be extremely difficult for Australians, who are used to hard, bouncy pitches, to win. The hosts won the first match of the series at MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai on 17 September. Yuzvendra Chahal bagged 3 wickets, whereas young Kuldeep Yadav also picked 2 wickets to set back Australia.

Eden Gardens is under the covers for the last two days.

Smith also praised Hardik Pandya (83 off 66 balls) and Mahendra Singh Dhoni (79 off 88 balls), who shared a rearguard 118-run stand for the sixth wicket to lift India to the challenging score after losing half of the side for 84 runs at one stage.
