Smith has always scored runs against India: Kohli

Kohli further said, ‘For us, he and Marnus Labuschagne are the main players in his team. Labuschagne is playing good cricket and he along with Smith controls the Australian middle order. Smith has always scored runs against India. It will be our endeavor to get him out as soon as possible, because if he plays for a long time, he can make a match-winning impact.
