Australia vs India 3rd Test Melbourne: The fans thronged the Melbourne Cricket Ground in numbers to watch their heroes practice for the upcoming all-important Boxing Day Test. The fans came in numbers to watch Virat Kohli and the Indian team prepare and see how it all happens to go into such a big Test. The elated fans expressed their joy and said it is surreal to watch their heroes practice. The Boxing Day Test is supposed to be a big Test for both the sides with the series locked at 1-1.
Here is the video where the fans voice their feeling on watching their heroes from a close quarter.
A small Australian who seemed to be an Indian fan said he was happy to see Jasprit Bumrah bowl. It is a big Test and the crowd at MCG is expected to come in to watch the 3rd Test in huge numbers.
A lot will depend on how Kohli and Pujara fare as they have been the batsmen who have got among the runs. Meanwhile, a confident Rahane at the presser said that he is confident of slamming two centuries in the Test.
“I am sure it will come in this match. The way I am batting, from Adelaide to Perth, the mindset I was into a counter-attack and the rhythm I was batting in, maybe 100 or even 200 can come,” said the 30-year-old.
“I think it is more important for me not to think about it. I have to continue batting the way I am. I can read the situation a bit better and if I can play like that it will be better for the team. Personal milestones can be achieved later as well.
“I am really happy (to return here for Boxing Day Test). We all know how big it is and to come here at 1-1 is really good. We had our chances in Perth but it is important to stay in the present right now and give our best starting from December 26.”
