Ind vs Aus, Sydney ODI: Rain scare looms large over SCG

January 22, 2016 2:21 PM |

Sydney ODI WeatherThe fifth and final ODI between India and Australia is scheduled to be played at the SCG on Saturday. Sydney ODI is likely to start at 8:50 am IST. India's shocking defeat in Canberra saw the hosts go 4-0 up in the 5-match ODI series. India will now play to avoid a 5-0 whitewash in Sydney tomorrow.

Weather during Sydney ODI doesn’t appear to be fit for a full day’s play. A thunderstorm warning has been issued in the region and there’s a good chance of multiple rain showers on Saturday. Rain is expected to arrive during the afternoon hours and will mellow down as the day goes on. Wind speed will pick up post-afternoon.

Partly cloudy to cloudy weather conditions will prevail throughout the day. Humidity levels will take a marginal fall, thanks to a southerly change expected to come through. Day temperature during Sydney ODI will settle around the high 20s. As per Skymet, multiple delays/interruptions on account of rain and wet conditions are expected during the game. Only yesterday, Team India cancelled their practice session due to wet conditions.

Coming back to cricket per se, Team India play for pride in the final game at the SCG. Despite some clinical performances, including Rohit Sharma’s run parade and Kohli’s back to back hundreds, Dhoni’s men have failed to register a single win in this series. Ashwin may get a game before the T20 series. Rahane, who batted with four stitches in Canberra, may be rested for the Sydney ODI.

Australia might miss the services of Glenn Maxwell who is reportedly injured. Other than this, no major changes are expected in the Aussie squad. Captain Smith has already expressed his team’s desire of gifting a 5-0 whitewash to the visitors at the SCG.

Weather forecast for Sydney ODI doesn’t look promising and one can expect a rain-curtailed game on Saturday. Duckworth-Lewis may come into play if enough overs are bowled. We will keep you updated on cricket, weather, and more as the action shifts to the shorter format in some time.
