If the rain doesn’t become the biggest hindrance for Australia, nothing other than a series clean sweep is expected, as Pakistan have failed to pressure the Australians sufficiently in the opening two test matches of this series.

Warner has hit four hundreds and three fifties in 18 innings at the Sydney Cricket Ground and he is value to get a century. If the opener gets a half-decent score, he could also be awarded the Player of the Match in his farewell test.

Head to Head 


  • Australia lead the current series 2-0
  • Australia won the most recent series 1-0 in Pakistan in 2022.
  • Australia have won 3 of the last 5 test series against Pakistan.

Australia Form


The MCG presented a much bigger challenge for the Aussies to get past Pakistan with the wicket causing significant challenges for batsmen.

The Australians didn’t falter, taking the match by 70 runs and wrapping up the series 2-0. 

The Aussies led by just 52 runs after the first innings and were 4/16 in their second innings before Mitch Marsh came in and saved the match with another impressive knock of 96 runs and forming a 153-run partnership with Steve Smith, who finished with a half-century himself.

Pat Cummings sliced through the Pakistan batsmen in both innings with the ball, collecting five wickets in the first and second innings with an average economy of 2.56/over.

Australia Squad


Pat Cummins (c), Scott Boland, Alex Carey, Cameron Green, Josh Hazlewood, Travis Head, Usman Khawaja, Marnus Labuschagne, Nathan Lyon, Mitch Marsh, Steve Smith, Mitch Starc, David Warner

Pakistan Form


Once again the Pakistanis put in a solid start to their innings with the bat but simply could not withstand the power of the Aussie bowlers who really cut into the order when they needed to. 

There was even a small chance halfway through their second innings to reach the 316 runs needed to win, but the tail couldn’t wag with the final four wickets going down with Pakistan failing to score a run.

Pakistan Squad


Shan Masood (c), Aamer Jamal, Abdullah Shafique, Abrar Ahmed, Babar Azam, Faheem Ashraf, Hasan Ali, Imam-ul-Haq, Khurram Shahzad, Mir Hamza, Mohammad Rizwan, Mohammad Wasim Jnr, Nauman Ali, Saim Ayub, Salman Agha, Sarfaraz Ahmed, Saud Shakeel, Shaheen Afridi 

Verdict

David Warner is backed to lead Australia to victory with a Player of the Match performance and a century not out of the question in his final test for the Aussies.
