India and Australia will square off for the fourth and final Test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. The high-voltage face-off is slated to be played from March 9 to March 13. According to media reports, PM Narendra Modi and Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese are likely to mark their presence at the venue to watch the fourth Test.
Australia endured a disastrous defeat in the first two matches but managed to alter the equation in the third one. The visiting unit, under interim captain Steve Smith, defeated India by 9 wickets in the Nagpur Test. The Aussies will look to replicate the same performance in the next game to level the series, which is currently standing 2-1 in favour of the hosts. Smith will continue to lead the side as Pat Cummins is still in Australia owing to family commitments.
Meanwhile, India’s batting unit once again suffered a massive collapse in the last match. They managed to post a mere total of 109 runs in the first innings. The situation was quite similar in the following innings as the Rohit Sharma-led side was bundled out for 163 runs. The fourth Test will be an important assignment for India, who are battling to confirm a place in the World Test Championship (WTC) final.
