The two PMs also visited the 'Hall of Fame museum at the Narendra Modi stadium.
Albanese arrived here on Wednesday and attended some programmes, while Modi reached the State late last night.
India lead the four match series 2-1. Australian captain Steve Smith won the toss and opted to bat in the series-deciding fourth Test here.
