Rahane-Pujara at the crease
Ajinkya Rahane 5 and Cheteshwar Pujara 9 not out by the visiting team. On the third day of the match, both these batsmen will have a big responsibility. Team India will try to create an edge against Australia in any case.

Rain can become a villain
Due to rain in Sydney, the game had to be stopped several times on the second day, but the match was restarted after the weather cleared. On the first day too, during the 8th over, the match had to be stopped for a long time. Even on the third day, it is difficult to say with certainty whether the game of 90 overs will be done or not. The rain can have an impact on the outcome of the match.
