The Australian batsmen may have lost on the last day of the final practice match ... the match may have been a 'draw' in the end ... but it was definitely Team India that made the biggest gains overall. This match contributed to the composition of the team.

Brought the rhythmic pant into the form. Shubhman Gill seemed a good alternative in the opening. As a part-time bowler (spin) who loves the vihara, he has established himself as the best batsman in the middle order.

Meanwhile, Ben McDermott (107 not out; 16 fours) and Jack Wildermouth (111 not out; 12 fours, 3 sixes) were unbeaten on the Australian 'A' team. By the end of the match, Australia 'A' were 307 for 4 in 75 overs in the second innings.
