Pitch Report

The surface at the Adelaide Oval has been extremely good for batting and the batters have gone on to play impactful knocks once they are well set in the middle. The bowlers have usually struggled on this track especially in the second innings where batting gets easier. Therefore, the captain winning the toss will prefer bowling first.

Probable best bowler: Wes Agar
