Team India is set to host Australia for 3rd Test starting on March 1 at Holkar Stadium in Indore. The Rohit Sharma-led side have already regained the Border-Gavaskar Trophy after registering a convincing win in 2nd Test in Delhi. Team India is leading the 4-match Test series by 2-0 and another win in the series will confirm their berth for WTC final set to be played in June this year.
After a 6-day break, Team India are back in training ahead of 3rd Test. Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, KS Bharat and Ravindra Jadeja were among the ones to begin practice at the Holkar Stadium on Sunday. BCCI on Monday shared the video of India's training session. While Virat Kohli, Axar Patel were seen batting in the nets, KS Bharat was working on wicketkeeping drills with the fielding coach.

KL Rahul to play 3rd Test
Despite a poor-form, Indian opener KL Rahul is set to be included in India's playing XI for the 3rd Test. While many ex-cricketers have openly demanded the inclusion of Shubman Gill in place of KL, Team India is likely to stick with the same XI. However, it could be KL's final chance to find his form in Tests as another failure might force Rohit Sharma and management to give young Gill a chance at the top for final Test.
