The Indian cricket team was invited for an afternoon tea hosted by Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott at his official residence today.

Players from both sides posed for the official photo session with Abbott at Kirribilli House, his second official residence.

Dressed in their casual Team India T-Shirts and trousers, the players were photographed with Abbott with the BCCI posting the pictures on its Twitter handle.

"The Indian cricket team was hosted for afternoon tea by Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott on the first day of the new year, on Thursday", the BCCI said.

There was another photograph of the newly-appointed Indian captain Virat Kohli, his Australian counterpart Steven Smith and Abbott.

It is not sure whether Mahendra Singh Dhoni attended the event or not as he was not seen in any of the photos.

The fourth and final test match between India and Australia will be from January 6.
