In an interview with Cricket Australia, former pacer Glenn McGrath has selected his Test team of the year. McGrath has elected Kohli, who according to him is the “best batsman in the world at the moment”, as the captain of the side, which also features Test cricketer of the year Ravichandran Ashwin.

From cricket.com.au:

"I haven't picked it just on stats alone. Stats are important, but it's all about attitude, the way you hold yourself in the game, and the effect you can have on the game.

"To me that's probably more important than stats. But if you've got both, you've got the perfect cricketer, the perfect team and I'm happy with this team.​

1. David Warner

"I found the openers to be the toughest part. For me there hasn't been any real standout in the last 12 months. Dave Warner hasn't had the best 12 months, but still not too bad and his attitude and effect on the team is always pretty positive. He has a lot of energy and he's very upbeat."
