Hosts Australia will be looking to complete a 3-0 whitewash in the Test series when they face Australia in the third and final game at Sydney Cricket Ground, starting from Wednesday.

Captain Pat Cummins will be pleased with his side’s excellent performances produced in the first two Tests played at Brisbane and Melbourne. Currently, Australia are 2-0 up in the three-match Test series.

On the other hand, South Africa woes continued in the previous Test and it looks unlikely to get any better for the visitors in this dead rubber. Captain Dean Elgar will need to lead from the front and deliver a decent performance with the bat.

The hosts will not make any changes to their playing XI for the third and final game of the series against South Africa.

In the Boxing Day Test, David Warner found form with the bat for Australia and notched up a splendid double century against South Africa. Left-hander will be keen to continue his excellent form for Australia.

Nathan Lyon and medium-pacer Cameron Green are the other prominent bowling options for Australia for this SCG Test.

In the batting department, the side will be relying on the in-form wicket-keeper Kyle Verreynne, who has been South Africa’s leading run-scorer in this series with 149 runs at an average of 37.25.
