The first two test matches between Australia and New Zealand have been extremely one-sided in favor of the home side. The test series has been decided already but there is still pride and some important World Test Championship points to play for.
Australia seems to have everything under control at the moment and the focus is shifting towards developing younger players for the future. New Zealand has to find a way to be somewhat relevant in this series and must use some out of the ordinary tactics to try and trip up the home team.
Just one test match win for New Zealand against Australia since 1993 does not make for very positive reading about the chances that the visitors have in this last test match.
Australia vs New Zealand 3rd test match 2019 is going to be played at the Sydney Cricket ground, Sydney starting on the 2nd of January 2019.
The biggest news story or controversy ahead of the third test match seems to be about Shane Warne’s comment that Nathan Lyon step aside and let Mitchell Swepson get some time in the playing eleven at Sydney.
Lyon responded with a clear refusal to step aside for anyone although he did welcome the prospect of playing together with Swepson.
This seemingly innocuous story getting so much coverage is because Australia has very little else to worry about at the moment. Its batsmen are scoring runs, the side is free of any major controversies, the bowlers are doing their job, and there are no major injury concerns.
Josh Hazelwood missed the previous test because of an injury and is not going to be available for this match either but he was hardly missed. James Pattinson stepped up brilliantly in his place and bowled very well.
We don’t think Australia is going to make any further changes to its side for this match. Sydney is probably the only place where an extra spinner is needed but Marnus Labuschagne may be the man Australia turns to.
The biggest story in the batting lineup is Steve Smith’s lack of centuries. He has now got out in every single to Neil Wagner and that may be something that is playing on his mind. Smith has been out to the short ball and would be aware that every single bowler in the world is looking at the footage with interest right now.
David Warner, Joe Burns, Marnus Labuschagne, Steve Smith, and Travis Head are all in excellent form and any one of them could end up scoring a century in this match.

New Zealand had a number of problems in front of it already and losing Trent Boult for the third test would not have helped. They have brought in an additional spinner as his replacement, perhaps indicating the direction they are looking to go.
New Zealand has a mountain to climb ahead if it has to come close to challenging the Aussies. The Kiwi batsmen have not been able to compete against the Australian bowlers so far and their own bowling has been completely ineffective.
Winning the toss and batting first would be a good start since the Sydney surface begins to change pretty dramatically after the third day.
Kane Williamson has to take the lead in scoring runs as the best batsmen for New Zealand. Williamson has not been able to assert himself in this series at all and must know that the batting lineup is always going to struggle without him playing a central role.
Tom Blundell showed that counter-attacking can be a good strategy as has Ross Taylor in this series. Tom Latham, Kane Williamson, and BJ Watling have been too defensive and are sitting ducks in front of the superior Australian batting lineup.
The Kiwis have not been able to take 20 wickets even once in this series. Neil Wagner has been the best bowler for them running in without rest whenever he is given the ball. Tim Southee is not the bowler he once was and the likes of Mitchell Santner or Coin de Grandhomme are going to struggle against this Australia lineup every single time.
Their only hope seems to be a crumbling pitch which makes batting very difficult.
TWM Latham, TA Blundell, Jeet Raval, Ross Taylor, GD Phillips, BJ Watling, Colin de Grandhomme, TD Astle, W Somerville, Matt Henry, N Wagner.
The team that wins the toss is going to want to bat first and this should be seen as a significant advantage.

The rain seems to be around Sydney but should remain away for the duration of the test match. A few harmless clouds are predicted on every single day, though. The surface at the SCG is going to be one that is slow and helpful to the spinners. Rain saved Australia from a defeat at the hands of the Indians here last year but we expect a better show from the home team now that it is back to full strength.
The spinners are going to be at the center of the action from the third day onwards. Nathan Lyon and Mitchell Starc with some reverse swing are our two bowlers to watch out for.

It is safe to say that we don’t give New Zealand much hope in this test. They lost the first test by 296 runs and the second by 247 runs. They may get the margin down a bit further in this one but we don’t think it is going to be close at all.
Bet on Australia to win.
