Australia will be back to their happy hunting ground for the 4th and final Test at the Gabba, Brisbane. The venue holds a lot of significance as the home side, Australia is yet to be beaten there in a Test match since 1988 where they lost to West Indies by 9 wickets.
From then on, they have played 31 games winning 24 of those, and never lost a single game till now. Seen as a result-oriented ground, the hosts will want to win at their fortress and reclaim the Border-Gavaskar trophy.
Pacer Josh Hazlewood who is a part of Australia’s lethal attack alongside Mitchell Starc and No.1 fast bowler Pat Cummins speaking before the game at Brisbane said that they love playing at this venue and it gives spring in their step.
“All Australians love playing up there. We probably grow a leg given the record we’ve got. We know touring sides don’t like to play there, so that puts us a bit ahead before a ball is bowled. I guess we thrive on that,” Hazlewood said.
He also mentioned personally he enjoyed playing at the Gabba and hoped that rains will stay away during the course of the game.
“It’s an awesome place to play. Very much an Australian venue, I’ve always enjoyed playing there. It’s late in the season to be playing there – it’ll be a bit hotter than normal – but we’ll put up with that and hopefully the thunderstorms stay away.” he sighed off.
With the series level at 1-1, the hosts will go into the Brisbane Test are the firm favorites to clinch the series 2-1 and regain the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.
