The third test match between Australia and India will be played at Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), Melbourne from Friday. Home side Australia leads four match test series by 2-0.
After their superb performance in the first two test matches Australia seems to be favorite in third test match too against tourist India. But India wants to be back in the series and at least not lose the series. They are thinking of winning the remaining matches of the series.
