After recording an epic draw in the third Test of the series at Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) on Monday, the Indians are sparing no effort to prepare for the decision maker at La Gabba who starts from Friday. SCG Test hero Rishabh Pant shared a photo with his gym partners – Rohit Sharma, Prithvi Shaw and some of the support staff. The group can be seen flaunting their swollen biceps. Speaking to Instagram, Pant captioned the post, “It’s about brotherhood, work – all day, every day.”
Earlier today, Indian bowling coach Bharat Arun was seen discussing the tricks of the trade with pacemakers Jasprit Bumrah and Shardul Thakur.
In a series of photos shared on the official Twitter account of the Indian cricket team, Bumrah can be seen with a ball in hand, speaking with coach Arun and Thakur.
The team were also seen in a clique at Gabba, where coach Ravi Shastri was seen giving a pep talk.
“After an epic fight in Sydney, it’s time to regroup. We have started our preparations for the Final Test à la Gabba! #TeamIndia #AUSvIND,” tweeted the Cricket Control Board of India (BCCI).
India’s injury problems have worsened with each passing day and the last on the list is the spearhead of the Bumrah rhythm, which has abdominal tension.
The Indian attack has already lost Mohammed Shami – broken hand – and Umesh Yadav – calf injury – during the current series and with the series level at 1-1, the team knows the importance of the final test which starts on January 15th.
The Indian team will, however, miss the services of Sydney test hero Hanuma Vihari due to a hamstring injury.
While Vihari’s hamstring problem was noticeable, few knew that even Ashwin had back problems on Monday morning. It was later revealed by his wife Prithi on social media.
