Australia vs England 5th Test Prediction
England could not break Australia's resistance at the MCG, but they will take confidence from the fact that they were able to push the hosts and make a match out of it. Having said that, the visitors will need to come up with an even better performance at the SCG if they are to prevent a 0-4 series defeat. Australia have an impressive test record at this venue and they have lost only one of their last sixteen test matches here. As for the weather forecast, there is a possibility of some rain on the fourth and fifth days but it isn't expected to pour as heavily as it did in Melbourne. So a result seems very much likely on the cards and we predict the mighty Aussies to bag another win here.
