India vs Australia, 3rd Test: Here are the Adda notes

This Ad is not available for you.

The Indian cricket team will take on Australia in the third Test of the Border-Gavaskar trophy 2020-21 at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) starting on Thursday, January 7.

The ongoing four-match Test series is currently tied at 1-1, with Australia winning the first Test in Adelaide while India came back with an eight-wicket victory in the second at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG). 

A win for either side in Sydney would mean they cannot lose the Test series regardless of the result in the fourth and final Test match in Brisbane. 

Interestingly, India and Australia have played 12 Tests at SCG with the hosts winning five of them and visitors securing just one victory.

However, India had sealed the Border-Gavaskar 2018-19 series here on their last tour as the Sydney Test ended in a stalemate and Virat Kohli-led Team India hung on to their 2-1 lead in the series.
