Rain often disrupts Sydney Tests, but the forecast this week suggests lower chances of interruptions. Meanwhile, Warner made an appeal for the return of his lost Baggy Green cap that vanished while his luggage was being transported from Melbourne.

Warner, under scrutiny for his place in the team, will bid farewell in his hometown after mixed performances in the Pakistan series. Cummins hopes for a grand send-off, eyeing a potential Warner century and a memorable exit.

Australia clinched the series with a 79-run win in Melbourne, led by Cummins’ outstanding performance, taking five wickets in the match and earning the Player of the Match award. Pakistan, chasing 317 runs, fell short at 237 in their second innings.

This Test marks Pakistan’s struggle in Australia, having lost 16 consecutive Tests since their last win in 1995.
