England pacer James Anderson said he is looking forward to what he expects to be a "tough battle" against Virat Kohli during the India tour next year.

"It's always tough bowling against batsmen of that quality," Anderson told the Test Match Special podcast on Friday. "Obviously, I've had some success against him in 2014 and then he came back a completely different player in 2018 and it was incredible. It will be a tough battle in that respect, but that's something I do enjoy against the best players. As a bowler, you want to get the best players out."

The duo has had some intriguing battles over the years, with neither claiming to have had the wood over the other. Anderson, who recently became the first pacer to claim 600 Test wickets during England's home series against Pakistan, was Kohli's arch-nemesis when India toured England in 2014, dismissing the Indian captain on four occasions while he scored only 134 runs in his 10 innings. However, Kohli turned it around during India's 2018 tour, finishing the series as the leading run-scorer in the Tests with a tally of 593, which included two centuries and three fifties to his name.
