Originally from Bijnor, Uttar Pradesh, Fayaz Ansari relocated to Mumbai where he established his own salon. It was during this time that Irfan Pathan became acquainted with him and eventually made him his personal makeup artist, often including him on international tours.

Meanwhile, in cricket news, India’s assistant coach addressed Shivam Dube’s role as a bowler against Australia. Despite the impressive performance of India’s three seamers and spinners, the coaching staff acknowledges Dube’s preparations in the nets to contribute with his bowling whenever required.


“We always knew that Shivam (Dube) adds bowling, perhaps an over or two. The situation will dictate when and how we can utilize him. It could be just six balls or an entire over, but that spell could be crucial for us. He’s been putting in the work, and I believe he’s mentally prepared for any situation,” commented Paras Mhambrey at a pre-match press conference.

Here’s the predicted playing XI for India:
1. Rohit Sharma (C)
2. Virat Kohli
3. Rishabh Pant (WK)
4. Suryakumar Yadav
5. Shivam Dube
6. Hardik Pandya
7. Ravindra Jadeja
8. Axar Patel
9. Kuldeep Yadav
10. Arshdeep Singh
11. Jasprit Bumrah
