The tour of Australia by the Indian cricket team is nearing its end. The last and crucial Test of the four-Test Border-Gavaskar series between the two teams will be held in Brisbane from Friday. The day before the match, Team India practiced fielding vigorously. The video was shared by the official Twitter handle of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), in which all players practice throwing, catching and stump hits. In the first three Tests, Team India has been the target of criticism for its poor fielding, so the team is looking very seriously at good fielding in the last Test.
The series is currently 1-1. Three Test matches have been played between the two teams. Australia won by eight wickets in the first day and night test in Adelaide, then India won by eight wickets in the second Test at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. The third match of the series was played at the Sydney Cricket Ground, which ended in a draw. After playing the first Test, skipper Virat Kohli returned home on paternity leave, with Ajinkya Rahane selected as captain for the remaining Test matches.
