The Indian cricket team will take on Australia for the fourth and final Test match of the 2020-21 Border Gavaskar Trophy starting Friday, January 15, at the Gabba in Brisbane.
After going down to a huge eight-wicket loss in Adelaide in the first Test match under the captaincy of Virat Kohli, deputy Ajinkya Rahane has stepped up quite well. India have bounced back brilliantly since, winning the Boxing Day Test match in Melbourne to level the series 1-1 before churning out a historic draw in Sydney.
Injuries afflict Indian cricket team
India’s already injury-ravaged squad was further depleted after the third Test match, with strike bowler Jasprit Bumrah suffering an abdominal strain and all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja and Hanuma Vihari sidelined from the Brisbane Test match altogether.
However, the visitors will take the much-needed encouragement from their third Test match result going into the Gabba, which is a potential series decider. Watch India vs Australia 4th Test match live on streaming and on TV.
