India vs Australia: R Ashwin throws Ajinkya Rahane in the networks in ‘Kangaroo Land’ – WATCH – cricket
The Indian cricket team has already started their training sessions in Australia ahead of the Down Under series. The Indian team led by Virat Kohli will face Australia in 3 ODI, 3 T20I and 4 tests, with the first ODI taking place in Sydney on November 27 in Sydney. There has already been a lot of talk about the injuries suffered by some Indian players during the IPL, and about frustrated players within the bio-bubble.
In the past week, there has also been a lot of talk about Kohli taking paternity leave after the first test, and whether India could compete in her absence.

But the conversations in the media have not stopped the training sessions and the Indian rapper R Ashwin shared a video on his Instagram, in which he launched Ajinkya Rahane on the networks.
Rahane defended the delivery but was clearly fooled by the speed of the ball. He put the bottom edge of his bat on the ball, and the ball, instead of going forward, went backward.
“Right arm on top !! Land of kangaroos! #backatitagain, ”Ashwin wrote in his post.
Meanwhile, Australia’s cricket series against India has been put in uncertainty again after a coronavirus outbreak in Adelaide, where the first test is scheduled to be played next month.
Players from the states of Western Australia and Tasmania who recently returned home from national games in Adelaide were ordered to isolate their homes on Monday when their provincial governments closed the borders with South Australia.
