Australia won the toss and elected to bat in the fourth and final test against India being played at the Sydney Cricket Ground on January 6, 2015.

Ind vs Aus 4th Test

Australia had already triumphed in the series, 2-0 and this match will be the last chance for India to bring back the lost honor. This test match will mark the first outing of the Australians in Sydney after the death of Phillip Hughes.

This match will be quite emotional for the Australian Team. A permanent memorial plaque for the deceased batsmen will be unveiled in the ground.

The pitch in the Sydney Cricket Ground is known for its spin friendly nature when compared to other Australian grounds. This time, the pitch is made in such a way that it will favor both spinners and pacers. As per reports, effective use of reverse swing by pacers will fetch them benign results in this test.
