Indian captain hits ball out of the boundary both literally and figuratively especially while playing in India as it is always expected for any player to be better at home country.
In 2019, Kohli played 26 matches at the average of 60 and scored 1377 runs which shows his consistency and Smith scored 379 runs with an average of 37.90 for 10 matches.
