Australian Prime Minster Tony Abbott hosted the Indian and Australian cricket teams for afternoon tea at his official residence to mark the beginning of the New Year.
Speaking at an afternoon tea for the teams for the teams at Kirribilli House in Sydney on Thursday, Abbott spoke of his time as a cricketer during his student days at Oxford University. “I couldn’t bat, I couldn’t bowl, I couldn’t field, I couldn’t sledge and I think I held my place in the team on this basis and I promise there’ll be none of that today, “said the former captain of Oxford’s Middle Common Room team of the Queen College.
Dressed in their casual Team India T-Shirts and trousers, the players were photographed with Abbott with the BCCI posting the pictures on its Twitter handle.
