Australia vs India 3rd Test: Rishabh Pant and the rest were spotted putting in the hard yards during a gym session in Melbourne ahead of the Boxing Day Test. Ajinkya Rahane, Ishant Sharma and Pant were seen doing leg exercises. On the other hand, Jasprit Bumrah was seen enjoying the streets of Melbourne. Earlier, India lost the Perth Test by 146 runs, which helped Australia square the series at 1-1, which makes the Boxing Day Test highly important for both the teams.
Here is the video of the Indian team in the gym session.
Here is Jasprit Bumrah having a stroll in the streets of Melbourne.
“I think Jasprit Bumrah is very very interesting. He runs off a very short run-up. He jogs and then bowls with a very short run. He has got straight arms. His bowling is not textbook by any means, but it works. He is very different from other pace bowlers, which reminds me of another fast bowler of my era, who was very different from everyone else – Jeff Thomson”.
“He is not as fast as Jeff Thomson was but similar in the sense that they were outside the guidelines of normal fast bowling action or technique,” Lillee in an interview.
It seems that the India team is not bogged down after the defeat at Perth and are trying to stay as motivated as possible for the Melbourne Test.
