Ahmedabad is all set to play the host for India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Australian counterpart Anthony Albanese as special spectators on day one of the fourth Test between India and Australia.
As per reports, the two leaders might be seen in the commentary box as well in the first session of the Test. However, no such plans have been revealed by any officials so far, but reports have surfaced regarding the possibility of such an occurrence on Thursday. Along with that, a lap of the ground is also planned on a vintage vehicle.
According to a statement from the Australian Prime Minister’s office, his visits to Ahmedabad, Mumbai, and New Delhi would strengthen Australia’s strategic, economic, and people-to-people connections with India. According to a statement from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Anthony Albanese will fly into Ahmedabad on March 8 before visiting Mumbai on March 9 and then flying into Delhi later that day.
The 4th Test being held at the Narendra Modi Stadium is the biggest cricket stadium in the world in terms of seating capacity. The venue can host around 1.25 lakh people, and the stadium is expected to be filled with many spectators as India faces Australia.
Having already retained the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, the Indians have too much at stake in the 4th Test. If the Indians manage to win the 4th Test, it will guarantee their place in the World Test Championship finals to be played at Lords.
