Rain could play a crucial role in determining the outcome of the fourth and final India-Australia Test starting in Gabba on Friday.
While the first day on Friday is expected to be bright and sunny, the forecast for the second, fourth and fifth days is for rain. But India’s battle coach, Vikram Rathour, seemed undisturbed.
“You don’t play cricket when you look at the weather. As far as we are concerned, we are looking for a complete game. we win this one again, ”he said.
The Australians, who missed a chance to beat India in the previous Test at the Sydney Cricket Ground, must be concerned about the prospect of rain as the series is tied at 1-1.
They want to win this test to reclaim the Border-Gavaskar trophy that India took from them in 2017 and kept it in Australia in 2018/19, both with 2-1 scores.
Interestingly, the fourth and final test of the 2018-19 series was also affected by rain, with Day 5 being completely washed away as India was denied a possible victory.
