India is one step away from making history in Australia as they lead the 4-match series by 2-1 ahead of the final Test match in Sydney. In the familiar conditions, the visitors could well become the first Asian side to win a Test series in Australia. The in-form India pacers have been crucial in containing the Australian batsmen in this series who are yet to record an individual century. Both the teams have a couple of changes to their playing XI going into this match.
All the key stats and numbers ahead of the final Test match in Sydney:
6 – Australia has been bowled out in all six innings in this Test series. The last instance of Australia getting bowled out in all matches of a Test series was in the 4-match Test series in 1992.
40 – Number of wickets Umesh Yadav has bagged in the ten Test matches at home in the last two years. He bagged those wickets at an average of 22.62 and a strike-rate of 42.2. Umesh stands a chance to play in the Sydney Test where the pitch is similar to that of an Indian track.
72 – Travis Head’s 72 in the first innings of the Adelaide Test is the highest individual score for Australia in this Test series. Last time Australia had a lowest “highest score” after the 3rd match of a Test series was way back in 1905.
103.67 – KL Rahul’s batting average in the last match of a 4-match/5-match Test series. He scored 622 runs across seven innings in those matches with three of his Test career’s five centuries.
