Team India is all set to face Australia in the fourth and final Test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy in Ahmedabad from Thursday. Despite suffering a big defeat in the third Test, the Rohit Sharma-led side are leading the four-match series 2-1. As only two days are left for the final Test, one more thing which is just round the corner is the festival of Holi. While the entire nation is gearing up for the colorful festival, the players of the Indian team too did not hold back from celebrating the joyous occasion with each other.
India batsman Shubman Gill shared a video on Instagram on Tuesday in which the Indian cricket team can be seen celebrating Holi inside the team bus. While Virat Kohli dances in front of the camera with a colorful face, Rohit Sharma throws ‘gulal’ from his back. Gill holds the camera as the rest of the teammates enjoy.
After losing the first two Tests, Australia staged a spectacular comeback in the third Test at Indore, defeating India to reduce the deficit to 1–2.
Wins in India are rare for visiting teams and it was no different for Australia, who registered their first win on Indian soil in six years.
For India, it was only their third defeat in the last 10 years and they will need to rework their plans ahead of the final Test starting March 9 in Ahmedabad.
Australia has made it to the final of the World Test Championship by defeating India in the third Test of the ongoing Border-Gavaskar Trophy. Team India now needs to win the fourth Test to reach the final of the WTC.
