The Indian cricket team will take on the ground to play the third Test match against Australia in Sydney from 7 January. After winning the second Test match by 8 wickets in Melbourne, Team India will also look for victory in the third Test match so that the Indian team takes a 2-1 lead in the Test series. After the defeat in Adelaide, the Indian team had made a stunning 1-1 draw in the second Test under the captaincy of Ajinkya Rahane and now this Test match is going to be very important for both the teams, but winning in Sydney, India Will not be easy.
Team India's test record in Sydney is very poor. However, on the last tour, when the Indian team played the last Test match in Sydney, then it was 622 runs for 7 wickets, the match was seen in India's favor. Kuldeep Yadav took 5 wickets in that match, but due to rain this match could not be played. Once again India will try to perform the same, but the team's poor record only shows that it will not be easy to win here.
Team India had their first Test win in Sydney in 1978 and after that the Indian team did not win any Test match at this ground. India won its last Test match at this ground 42 years ago. Rahane's captaincy team must have tried to win on this ground after 42 years. India has played a total of 12 Test matches at this ground, in which this team won only one Test match and has lost in 5 matches. At the same time, 6 matches were drawn between the two countries in Sydney.
The highest run scorer for India in Sydney is Sachin Tendulkar, who has scored 785 runs with three centuries and two half-centuries. At the same time, Anil Kumble has the highest number of 20 wickets at this venue.
