Injury-stricken team India face a steep challenge at the Gabba Test
There are questions over the fitness of many players as Team India battle a series of injury woes ahead of the final Test. Batting coach Vikram Rathour revealed that the playing XI would not be announced until a final evaluation is done on the morning of the 4th Test.
Dismissing earlier reports which suggested that Jasprit Bumrah was ruled out, Rathour revealed that the player would be assessed and it would be a last-minute decision whether to play him or not.
“We will take a call tomorrow. The medical team is working with all the injured players. If Bumrah is fit, he plays. If he is not fit, he doesn’t play,” batting coach Rathour said.
Who will win the Border-Gavaskar series if the 4th match ends in a draw?

Team India are the defending champions of the trophy. Hence, in the event of the Gabba Test ending in a draw, Team India will retain the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.Published 14 Jan 2021, 19:34 IST
