The final Test match between the Indian cricket team and Australia will begin this Friday at the Gabba in Brisbane. The four-match series is tied at 1-1 currently.
A draw in Brisbane will be enough for India to retain the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. However, should Australia win the Gabba Test match, they will regain the title.
Unfortunately, India has lost some of its heroes from their epic draw in the third Test in Sydney prior to locking horns with Australia in Brisbane.
The hosts start as favorites to win in Brisbane as the Indian cricket team will not be at full strength. Besides, Australia has an extraordinary record at the Gabba. They have not lost a Test match at this venue since November 1988.
On the other hand, India has never managed to win a Test match at the Gabba. Their best performance at this stadium came during the 2003/04 tour, when they took the first-innings lead and drew the Test.
Apart from that, the Indian cricket team has lost all their Tests in Brisbane.
