India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi met his Australian counterpart, Anthony Albanese while attending the first day of the India-Australia test in Ahmedabad at the narendra modi stadium on Wednesday.
During a four-day visit to India, Albanese will focus on shared concerns about China deepening trade ties and cricket.
Australia and India with Japan and the United States make up the quad alliance that is seen as a bulwark against Chinese assertiveness in the Asia-Pacific region.
On the same day, Albanese said he would meet President Joe Biden soon in the United States, where they are expected to unveil a nuclear submarine deal aimed at countering China's Growing ambitions.
Relations between India and China have been locked in a stand-off on the nuclear-armed giants' disputed frontier since 2020 when twenty Indian troops and four Chinese soldiers were killed in clashes.
