ICC said in a statement that India had entered the series against Australia needing to win at least one Test to retain possession of the prestigious mace, which it had reclaimed following the Indore Test against New Zealand in October 2016.

Captain Virat Kohli received the mace and cheque from Sunil Gavaskar at a ceremony in Dharamsala, after the fourth and final Test against Australia.
