Australia-A will take on England Lions in the Only Unofficial Test which will start from Thursday. Australia A are a pretty strong unit with the likes of Mitchell Marsh, Josh Inglis, and Sean Abbott. They have got all the capability of beating the England Lions. They need to use this opportunity for the maximum extent as performances matter a lot for those who will be eyeing a spot in the main Australian squad. Usman Khawaja, Mitchell Swepson, and Michael Neser who failed to make it to the starting XI against England will feature in this match.

England Lions, on the other hand, have already played two matches against England and both of them ended in a disappointing draw due to rain. They have got quality players in their lineup with the likes of Harry Brook, Ben Foakes, and Saqib Mahmood.

Match Details:

Australia-A vs England Lions, Only Unofficial Test

Venue: Ian Healy Oval, Brisbane

Date & Time: December 9th – December 12th at 5:30 AM IST and 10:00 AM local time

Pitch Report:

We can expect a balanced surface for this match. Usually, the wickets in Australia tend to assist the quicks and we can expect a lot of swing and seam movement here as well. The wicket isn’t going to change much and batting first is a good option.
