Indore: Team India's batting mainstay Virat Kohli will look to get some batting practice ahead of the ODI series against Australia while Virender Sehwag and Yuvraj Singh will be aiming to get back into national selectors' radar when Delhi meet India Blue in Challenger Series opener.
Kohli, who is expected to play a major part during India's seven-match ODI series against Australia, will like to get into the groove after a six-week break from cricket. Virender Sehwag's final shot at redemption starts with the this tournament.
The 'Nawab of Najafgarh' hasn't played any competitive cricket for six months since being dropped from the Indian squad. This will be the first serious tournament that he will be playing and obviously he would like to get some runs under his belt before he takes on West Indies A in the first-class matches next month.
