Fans can watch the India vs. Australia cricket match live online and see whether India can turn around its fortunes from the first two Test matches of the series.
So far Australia has not been very hospitable, beating the visiting Indian team in the first two Test matches and looking sharp in doing so.
The teams will meet for a third Test match, which will start Friday at 10:30 a.m. local time (11:30 p.m. GMT) from Melbourne.
The match has a bit of added drama, with reports of a rift within the Indian team between Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli on the fourth, and last, morning of the Gabba Test. Dhawan was injured and was late in telling the team he could not bat, leaving Kohli with only a few minutes to prepare.
But after the match Indian captain MS Dhoni put some cold water on the reports, and even had a joke about the situation.
“Yeah, actually that was the case,” Dhoni joked, “Virat used a knife and he stabbed Shikhar. When he recovered out of that we pushed him out to bat.
“These are all stories. Marvel and Warner bros should pick them up and make a movie out of it. I don’t know where it comes from. If someone from the team has actually told you this, it will be interesting if you give us the name of the individual who said this. This is what has happened because his imagination is really brilliant, and he should be working for Warner Bros or another movie company. And he doesn’t deserve to be in our dressing room because he has created something that hasn’t been there at all. Stuff like that makes good stories for the tabloid, and maybe it helps them sell it. As far as reality is concerned, there is nothing like that.”
Fans who watch the India vs. Australia cricket match live online will see whether the Indian team can turn around its play on the field and avoid falling behind, as they did in the first Test.
