The fourth and final Test match of the Border Gavaskar Trophy 2023 between India and Australia is set to take place from March 9 to March 13 at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, with a start time of 09:30 AM IST and the toss at 09:00 AM IST. Rohit Sharma and his team face a daunting task after consecutive defeats, and Australia’s recent win in the third Test match has not only saved them from losing the series, but has also secured their spot in the final of the World Test Championship (WTC) 2023, scheduled for June at the Oval.
During the third Test match, Australian spinners Matthew Kuhnemann and Nathan Lyon proved to be a challenge for Indian batters, bowling them out for a meagre total of 109 runs in the first innings. However, Indian spin maestros Ravindra Jadeja and Ravinchandran Ashwin made things difficult for Australian batters in their first innings, bowling them out for 197 runs. The difference between the two sides remained Usman Khwaja’s half century, which gave Australia an 88-run lead.
In the second innings, Nathan Lyon’s spin attack once again troubled Indian batters, with India managing to score only 163 runs on the board. Apart from Chetaswar Pujara, no other batter could score a half century. Travis Head and Marnus Labuschagne helped Australia chase down the target of 76 runs in just 18.5 overs to secure a crucial victory.
With the final Test match looming in Ahmedabad, India has one last chance to make it to the final of the WTC 2023.
