Josh Phillippe is due for runs. He hasn't been at his best in the last two games, maybe he turns it around in this match.

The match starts at 07:10 PM local time (08:10 AM GMT) (01:40 PM IST). This match will be live on Sony TEN 3and Sony TEN 3 HD. Live Streaming will be available on Sony LIV.
Another damp squib could potentially be on the cards on Saturday. If the weather report is to be believed, Sydney is expected to be pretty wet on Saturday with consistent spells of rain expected to lash the city throughout the day. The temperatures are expected to range between 20-22 degrees celsius. Chances of rain- 100%.
With rain expected to play a substantial part on Saturday, it might come down to even a 5-over shootout. That said, the fast bowlers might also come into the picture considering there will be considerable moisture to play with.
Average first innings score:– 141 [In the three completed games at the venue this season]
