Kohli receives praise from Johnson ahead of 4th test

SYDNEY (AP) -- Australia fast bowler Mitchell Johnson believes new India captain Virat Kohli, who he's clashed with repeatedly during the first three matches of the four-test series, will bring a new, aggressive approach to the way India plays cricket.

Kohli and Johnson have had frequent run-ins in the series which Australia has clinched with wins in the opening two matches at Adelaide and Brisbane. But Johnson said Friday he expects Kohli's "in your face" approach to the game will spill over to his captaincy.

Following Mahendra Singh Dhoni's surprise decision to retire from test cricket after the drawn test earlier this week at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, Kohli assumed the fulltime captaincy ahead of the final test in Sydney beginning Tuesday.
