Peter Lalor, a cricket journalist from Australia who has come to India to cover his country’s ongoing tour of India, was recently amazed by something off the field and he could not stop himself from sharing it on his Twitter account.

Lalor shared a video on the social media platform showing a worker scaling an under-construction high-rise building without any protective gear and the scene left him surprised.

He captioned the video showing the worker climbing a ladder and another sitting two levels above him in the building, “Indian construction workers are amazingly brave but bloody hell I reckon they might need a union to demand a bit more site safety. This is 9 stories up with another 9 to go.”

His video received more than 527,000 views at the time of writing this report.

India won the Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2-1 by beating Australia 2-1 in a four-match series, their fourth successive win over the same opponents since 2016-17.

However, more than the players’ performance, the pitches stole the attention as some of them were vicious turners. The first three Tests ended inside three days with India winning the first two and Australia hitting back in the third.

The surface in the third match played in Indore was rated “poor” by the International Cricket Council after Australia won by nine wickets in just over two days.

India and Australia will now lock horns in a three-match one-day international series starting Friday (17).
