The Ultimate Test Series: Team India is on the brink of securing the ICC World Test Championship crown and Australia stands as the final obstacle in their way. The Australians are set to travel to India for a preview of the World Test Championship finale, but a tough test awaits them as they aim to reclaim the Border-Gavaskar Trophy (BGT). India, on the other hand, will be looking to win the BGT for an unprecedented fourth consecutive time.
