The Border-Gavaskar Trophy between India and Australia is going to start from February 9.

All eyes will be on Virat Kohli, who needs just two centuries to equal Sachin tendulkar's record in this tournament.

But this might be a tough ask, given his poor numbers against Aussie pacer Pat Cummins.

Here, we take a look at a list of bowlers who can get the better of Virat in Test cricket.

Fifth is Morne Morkel, with the South African dismissing the former India skipper four times in 12 innings.

Virat has scored 119 runs in 12 innings Against Australia's Peter Siddle, being dismissed 4 times.

Former England spinner Graeme Swann has dismissed Virat Kohli thrice and conceded just 62 runs in six innings.

Lungi Ngidi of South Africa has dismissed Virat 4 times, conceding only 66 runs in 9 innings.

Pat Cummins tops this list given Virat's frailties against the pacer. He has scored only 82 runs in 10 innings, losing his wicket five times.

This also means that Virat will be wary of the threat that Cummins possesses with the ball, if he want to score big runs.
