New Delhi, February 19
Fresh from retaining the Border-Gavaskar Trophy after winning the second test in Arun Jaitley Stadium, the Indian cricket team visited the Pradhanmantri Sangrahalaya, a museum dedicated to the Prime Ministers of India.
India thrashed a hapless Australian cricket team in two and half days to win the test by six wickets. The result means that the hosts will keep the trophy, which they have won since the 2014 home series.
Led by skipper Rohit Sharma and coach Rahul Dravid, the team spent a considerable time at the Pradhanmantri Sangrahalaya.
