Xtra Time Web Desk: If you thought the Indian cricketers were the only ones to play Holi, you will be proved wrong. The Australian cricketers too enjoyed the festival of colours ahead of the fourth and final test match in Ahmedabad. The likes of Steve Smith, Marnus Labuschagne, Peter Handscombe. Alex Carey and Matthew Kuhnemann enjoyed Holi at the team hotel.
The Australian team is in high spirits after the comprehensive win in the third test at Indore. Captaincy by Steve Smith in Indore has lifted the morale of Australian players. Smith will continue to lead the side as Pat Cummins is still in Australia to be by the side of his ailing mother.
It goes to be seen if Australia tinker with the winning combination. The Aussies are already guaranteed a place in WTC final. They would like to finish the test series on a high by winning the final test and levelling the series 2-2.
Australia’s stand in Captain Steve Smith feels the wicket at Ahmedabad will be the best for batting compared to the other three tests. He also expects it to turn as well.
“Looks like probably of the four wickets we’ve seen so far, potentially the flattest on day one,” Smith told reporters on the eve of the game.
