The Indian team kept their hopes alive in the ongoing Border-Gavaskar Trophy but punching above their weight on Day 5 of the third test, which ended in a draw. The injury-hit Indian camp went into the last day of the test with half-fit Rishabh Pant, Ravichandran Ashwin, Hanuma Vihari and Ravindra Jadeja. Although Jadeja did not get the opportunity to bat, the other three stood like pillars and denied Australia an easy victory.

The caravan now moves to Brisbane with the fourth and final test of the series scheduled to take place at the Gabba. The reports of Indian players unwilling to play in Brisbane was floated earlier which was not taken well by the Aussie media. Some even went on to say that India is scared to play Australia at the Gabba, considering the hosts’ incredible record at the venue. However, the touring side has been fully cooperative and agreed to play in Brisbane.

Sharing his take on the debate, former India captain – Sunil Gavaskar said that India has a good chance of defeating the Kangaroos in their fortress. The 71-year-old opined that the visitors’ bowlers are capable enough to dismantle the Aussie batting lineup, even though they would be without the services of their first-choice pacers.

“I predicted before the series started here on Australian television that India is going to win 2-1. At the moment the series is 1-1. Yes, I know Gabba is Australia’s fortress. But India, in Bumrah, Saini and Siraj, have the ability to take on the Australians,” Gavaskar was quoted as saying to India Today.

“That is their fortress, they have not lost there. But there is always a first time. If Ajinkya Rahane and company do it, I won’t be surprised at all,” he added.

Due to a miraculous performance of the visitors in the recently concluded third test, the series stands levelled with all to play for in the fourth test, which is scheduled to start from January 15.
