Virat Kohli issues Mitchell Starc warning to India's batsmen in Pune

Australia paceman Mitchell Starc has raised his game to the next level and India's batsmen need to be wary of his ability to trouble them with reverse swing, home captain Virat Kohli said on the eve of the first Test beginning on Thursday.

"He is a world class bowler we all know that. He has been hampered by injuries quite often, but the way he has evolved as a bowler, it's been outstanding," Kohli told reporters. "He has learned the art of reverse swing and bowling with the old ball as well. It's amazing to see the way he has developed his skills. You admire world class bowlers and you respect their skills and Mitchell is one of them.
"He has really taken his game to the next level and that's why he is counted among the top bowlers in world cricket and deserves to be there because he has worked really hard and the results are evident."
