The SCG wicket is likely to be good for batting in first two days while pacers will get some assistance from the pitch on Day 1. Traditionally, SCG pitch supports spinner in 4th and 5th day of the match.

IND vs AUS 3rd Test match prediction

Australia would aim for a strong comeback after losing in Melbourne. With the return of David Warner as opener, the hosts are looking solid on paper. India won the previous match but lack of experience in the pace department may come as a big obstacle when they face Warner and company. Australia is favourites to win the third test match.
