Australia wins the toss and will bat
Get in contact
It is been a long time coming, but the Australian men’s team is back in motion on home soil. The most recent event was the to start with 1-dayer in opposition to New Zealand back in March, in a sequence that was abruptly termed off when the Land of the Lengthy White Cloud announced imminent border closures and the team had to jet home to stay clear of cancelled flights and months of quarantine. That 1 match was performed guiding closed doorways in an empty stadium, but this match nowadays will be able to have some semblance of a crowd in, less than virus constraints obviously.
The press box right here at the Sydney Cricket Floor is also sparsely populated with attendees who are spaced out (in the physical sense alternatively than the psychological). The pitch has some green tinges on it but I suspect people will be illusory in terms of any effect on the ball, and that the pitch will be hard and correct. The outfield right here seems very parched, a good little bit of white exhibiting by way of the grass.
India is the opponent nowadays, and what a match-up that will be. Virat Kohli with a minimal time to have an impression right before he heads home from the tour early just right before Xmas. India’s players primed soon after a long IPL season, even though they’ll have to modify that tactic a little bit for fifty-about cricket. We’ll have teams and the toss for you as they occur.
