Australia and New Zealand have bolstered their spin options ahead of this week’s showdown in Sydney.
Spin bowling could again come to the fore as the SGC hosts the third and final Test this Thursday.
While New Zealand have replaced Trent Boult with off-spinner Will Somerville, Australia could hand a debut to Mitchell Swepson.
The home side may even choose to pair Swepson and in-form Nathan Lyon in a two-pronged spin attack. Betting on spinners, especially during the second innings, could prove popular once the markets are priced up.
Australia already hold an unassailable 2-0 series lead and are now targeting a whitewash.
Australia are odds-on 1.29 (2/7) favourites with Bet365 to make it 3-0, while the Black Caps are down as 9.00 (8/1) for victory. The draw is priced up at 6.00 (5/1).
