There is forecast of rainfall in first two days of the India vs Australia third Test. However, the curator of SCG is quite hopeful that there would be full Test match.

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.
“I think we will have a bit of pace in it. We always start off with a little bit of pace in it. It naturally then turns into the traditional SCG wicket”, curator Lewis said.

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.
