India and Australia will compete in the fourth and final test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. The high-voltage duel is scheduled to take place from March 9th to 13th. According to media reports, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese are likely to mark their presence at the venue to watch the fourth test.
Australia suffered a disastrous defeat in their first two games but managed to change the equation in the third. The visiting unit, under interim captain Steve Smith, defeated India by 9 wickets in the Nagpur Test. The Aussies will look to repeat the same performance in the next game to even the streak that is currently 2-1 in the hosts’ favour. Smith will continue to lead the team as Pat Cummins is still in Australia with family commitments.
Meanwhile, India’s percussion suffered another massive collapse in the final game. They managed to post just 109 runs overall in the first innings. The situation was quite similar in the following innings as the Rohit Sharma-led side was tied for 163 runs. The fourth test will be an important task for India as they compete for a spot in the World Test Championship (WTC) finals.
