Show Preview

It’s the end of the road for David Warner as the Benaud-Qadir Trophy wraps up with the New Year’s Test match Sydney, as Australia seek a series clean sweep over Pakistan. Join The Roar for live scores and commentary from 10:30am (AEST).

All eyes will be on Warner as the boy from Matraville plays his final Test for Australia.

The hosts were given an almighty scare in Melbourne before Pat Cummins stood up with a captain’s spell to extend Pakistan’s losing streak down under to 16 Tests on the trot.

The batting is a concern, with Warner, Usman Khawaja, Marnus Labuschagne, Steve Smith and Travis Head failing to put up big scores at the MCG.

Shan Masood has shown his strong tactical nous which gives Pakistan hope for the long term. The skipper has backed his words of playing aggressive cricket, but his team will need him to convert his starts.

With Imam-ul-Haq struggling to score at a strike rate over 32 and an average below 25 this series, youngster Saim Ayub will make his debut at the SCG. Strike bowler Shaheen Afridi has also been rested for the clash, with Sajid Khan coming in to give Masood a front-line spin bowling option.

Prediction

Chances of rain have gone lower for days 1-4, but history always shows the Sydney Test is a danger of having a few sessions at least wiped out entirely.

Both teams could try to force a result with an approach similar to Bazball should rain come into play, but you would expect Australia to start as favourites.

Rain to play spoilsport and make it a draw or an Australia win on day five.
