Kohli and Team India in Attendance at Indian Summer Festival in Melbourne

The Virat Kohli-led Indian cricket team was in attendance at the Indian Summer Festival in Melbourne ahead of the Boxing Day Test on Wednesday.

Speaking at the festival, captain Kohli said he was excited to be a part of the Boxing Day Test, which holds a special place in the Australian cricket calendar.

"People love their cricket here and the atmosphere on boxing day is going to be amazing," said Kohli.

Kohli later shared a picture from the festival along with the Indian team, who were seen relaxing after the practice session.

With the series level at 1-1, both teams will be eyeing a victory in Melbourne to ensure that they don't lose the series. The pitch in Melbourne will be under the spotlight after it was rated 'poor' for the previous Test against England last yeae.

But the MCG curator Matthew Page has dismissed any such fears. In fact according to him, there is something for everyone on the wicket.
