Former India cricketer Wasim Jaffer believes star batsman Virat Kohli will have a successful ODI series against Australia. He hopes the former India captain will hit at least one century during the series. India is scheduled to play a three-match One-Day International series against Australia, which will begin on March 17 at Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium.

The second and championship matches will be held on March 19 and 22 in Visakhapatnam and Chennai, respectively. "There is no competition in one-day cricket for Virat Kohli," says one observer. I anticipate Virat Kohli to get at least one century in this series, and if he doesn't, it will be a failure by his standards. While I predict a century, he has the potential to make two.

He also enjoys playing against Australia, and when he is in form, it lasts a long period. "Hopefully, we'll get to see his centuries," Jaffer told ESPNcricinfo. "They would undoubtedly want to retain their dominance. India would also like to end their season on a high note because the IPL 2023 will begin after this and all Indian players will compete for different franchises.

This is the last opportunity for all Indian cricketers to compete together for a while. It is also an excellent chance for India to demonstrate why they are the overwhelming favorites to win the World Cup. As a result, they will want to perform well before the season ends," he continued. Meanwhile, Kohli, 34, hit 186 in the final Test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, his first Test century since November 2019.

Notably, India kept the Trophy, winning the series 2-1 following a draw in the final Test. India has also secured a place in the World Test Championship (WTC) final, which will begin on June 7 at The Oval.
