During the coronavirus pandemic, the ongoing test series between India and Australia has come as a boon for all cricket enthusiasts.

With the game tied 1-1, this match was also drawn by India after coming in a tough position. Being a true fan, Shahid Kapoor has now heaped praises on the Indian team, calling them “wounded lions".
