Team India salvaged a brave draw in the third Test at Sydney with the team marred by pre-match controversies, injuries, and below the belt sledging.
Indian wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant was at the helm of the first two, with him involved in what was labeled as the ‘Bill Gate’ and then getting hurt on his left elbow while batting in the first innings.
However, the 23-year-old showed great confidence in himself and took the attack to the opposition with his quickfire 97 off just 118 balls when the team was in deep trouble.
To take a break from the negatives around the Test series, it is important that the players stay in a happy mindset to keep the game-readiness going.

While the list of injuries continues to lengthen, the players that are free from any are continuing to be in the jovial mood by the looks of it. One example of this could be seen from Rohit Sharma’s latest Instagram story where he walked into Rishabh Pant’s room and shared a picture of the mess he had created.
Shubman Gill was also present in the room and looks to be smiling along with Pant Sharma clicked the picture.
Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill are currently free of any injuries while Pant recovers from the blow on his left elbow from a Pat Cummins delivery on Day 2 of the third Test. All three players will be crucial to India’s chances of victory in the decider in Brisbane that starts on Friday, January 15.
