The last and the fourth test in Border Gavaskar Trophy is no less than a historic test in making. If India wins this series, India would register a win in Australian soil after almost 41 years. Till date, India is leading the series with 2-1 after a considerate win in MCG so they would be looking for a victory but Aussies would be looking forward to level the series. That is what Australia’s PM Scott Morrison hopes.
Leaving Pat Cummins and Nathan Lyon not a single Aussie cricketer could stand up against India. They were the only stars. Australian Prime Minister during his special address in the New Year’s Day Cricket Reception at Kirribilli House, Sydney mentioned Nathan Lyon as GOAT. Many Australian, as well as Indian teams, were invited to the party. The Spin star Lyon according to the Prime Minister would be the deciding factor in the last test. ” I think Australians have enjoyed it thoroughly and there is still a lot more to enjoy in what I understand will be a turning wicket. So Nathan, do you best mate. Do your best. Live up to that ‘GOAT’ nickname and ensure it turns to your favour”.he said during his speech.
He didn’t forget to comment on the outrageous performance of Team India and Captain Virat Kohli. In this context, he said, “Can I congratulate Ravi Shastri and Virat Kohli for the way that your team have played in this Series and the great exhibition you have put on all around Australia”
We all know how India and Australia have embraced the rivalry all over years in cricket and no wonder Aussie Prime Minister to enjoys this rivalry. Although numbers of wins in a total of this clash run short by 18 fr Aussies to India’s 19, he thinks Australia can easily patch things up.
